Obesity is a real problem in many countries. Many people want to solve the problem for themselves, and some of them try that with “miraculous” shortcuts which do not always work as well as their public relations managers say.

Diet inventor Montignac dies
Thu, 2010-08-26 02:19.
Michel Montignac, the man who invented the Montignac diet, has died. He was 66.
His family says he died last Sunday after a long illness.
His funeral will be held today in Haute-Savoie, France.
Like with most people who die, Montignac’s friends and relatives will mourn him. Best wishes to them.
This said, however, dying at 66 is dying younger than the average age in France. Apparently, his diet did not make Montignac really healthy.
The Montignac diet got lots of criticism for not being based on science.
