Are We Winning The Battle Of The Bulge?
In spite of the billions of dollars spent annually on weight loss:
Obesity is still on the rise. Two out of every three people are overweight.
The centre for Disease Control and Prevention has declared obesity public enemy #1.
Dieters say most diets work for awhile but then something always happens; they have no choice, it’s not their fault, they have to quit.
Dr. Brown agrees with doctors who believe that as patients become healthier they lose weight more quickly.
Motivation is a skill that can be taught, it can be learned. The trick is to help the dieter to feel like they are in control and believe “I Can Do This!”
Will power is different, it can’t be learned or taught, it is more like a muscle that we must help the patient to build up gradually over time with a steady supply of small wins.
Obesity and weight gain are not simply a matter of over indulgence or a lack of will power, the diet must also pay attention to the patients unique needs.
The physician must keep up to date with the growing body of knowledge that suggests the secret to weight loss is accepting that we are all unique, one of a kind ‘weight loss’ puzzles; the solution to permanent weight loss is solving that puzzle.
