For Most, A Need for More than Advice to Eat Right and Exercise?

A recent http://www.healio.com post has the headline, "Diet, exercise alone not sufficient obesity treatment for most."

"For Most."

That is a lot.

It is also a signal that stigma and its partner the blame game is not a shortcoming of character.

I like this quote, “Therefore, the current advice to eat less and exercise more may be no more effective for most individuals with obesity than a recommendation to avoid sharp objects for someone bleeding profusely.”

Wouldn't it be great if there was a craving for thoughtfulness as part of the public discution obesity?

At least for most.
