A Call for Weight Loss Statistics

It is vary frustrating trying to research weight loss over the Internet. Not only does it seem that everyone is trying to make a quick buck but we are flooded with disinformation (false information). Everywhere I look, I see people throwing around numbers. However, they rarely site reliable sources. If you know of a good website or other source with quality scientific data on obesity and weight loss, please respond to this post with instructions for accessing this data. I am especially interested in obtaining raw data and not just the summarized interpretation of this data. Thank you.

Check out these scientific papers on carbohydrates. This re-inforces my recent belief that calories are not accurate measures of potential metabolic energy in foods.
