scarletfame asked: The closing on sci-show (obesity) was particularly unhelpful. At the end of an insightful episode was ill placed sarcasm such as "change planets," "choose who your parents are," and "let your house freeze over." Do you have any real advice? Cause I obviously can't do those things. :/

The video wasn’t meant as a guide for how to lose weight, but an explanation of the science behind the obesity epidemic. The point is that lots of things contribute to weight gain that we cannot control, which is why we’re having a problem in America. 

I do not know how to lose weight and, looking around at the insignificant success of every weight loss plan ever, I would say that it appears that no one knows. Which, I suppose, is another reason why we have a problem.
