2. What is the biggest problem faced when it comes to weight loss?
Trying to get the patient to own their problem, then address it. Too many people don’t want to hear that being overweight is a problem. Many of the main diseases that are related to being overweight cannot be felt unless they are at a very severe stage—high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol. The patients do not feel sick so their attitude is why should they bother to make changes. Even when shown lab results or other evidence of disease in their body they may not want to make any changes.
Society does not work for us, it works against us. The average patient wants a fast change for very little to no effort. They do not want to have to work at making changes. They also think that excess is just fine and can even look at eating less and exercising as deprivation. These attitudes are reinforced by society.
Few to no patients look at their condition as a form of addiction—addiction to a poor lifestyle of eating too much and not exercising enough. They cannot imagine that they need to break away from their current lifestyle and change to a better set of habits. Only with sustained effort at first will their bodies change to want (enjoy) the new, improved lifestyle. It is very difficult to get a person to understand that they can feel better if they make the changes suggested.
