Obesity and Patients
This is probably one of the best videos that I have seen recently about the causes of obesity and how we treat our patients.
It is something that we physicians must remind ourselves of constantly:
to treat patients with compassion and empathy.

Obesity and Patients
This is probably one of the best videos that I have seen recently about the causes of obesity and how we treat our patients.
It is something that we physicians must remind ourselves of constantly:
to treat patients with compassion and empathy.
But the second message is also important:
we don’t know what causes obesity – and the old thoughts about eating too much are no longer valid. We do know this, it isn’t what you eat, it is how your body processes the food. Too much processed grains, sugars, carbohydrates – are not good – and moving away from a diet of those will be important to the lifestyle change any who wish to lose weight and keep it off will have.

If you wish to lose weight, we know that you must change what you eat. The one thing all experts agree upon now is this:
avoiding processed grains and free sugars.
Both plant strong diets, and paleo diets preach this.
It isn’t just calories.
So the first step for many of my patients is this: learn to cook – and for me- this is the mission for all of my patients. And we like it when they start young

Starting kids early – learning to cook, appreciating good food- is one of the best starts you can do for your family
