          We thank the authors for taking the time to write because engagement is the first step to growth within our fields. Similar to the authors of the letter, we also have extensive experience as clinicians and scientists in both fields, and some of us have the lived experience of obesity and/or eating disorders. Still, although there is overlap, there are also areas where we interpret the data in different ways or use additional, but related, data to inform ways forward. We are grateful for this opportunity and wish to continue the professional and respectful exchange.
