ABSTRACT
Hippocrates' wisdom still resonates, while finding "the right amount" continues to elude us. From Hippocrates to current times, nutrition and physical activity patterns have been defined mostly by economic, cultural, and social factors rather than scientific facts. Only recently, we began to make scientific progress in these two vital areas of human health. However, the road ahead remains long and arduous, with voluminous, and at times, esoteric information difficult to interpret or implement, with profiteers and flamboyant, self-proclaimed experts that lure the public by attractive half truths regarding weight management, fitness and overall health.
