I agree totally with Dr. Richard Besser here (video above), in what he thinks of obesity and its designation now as a disease. It doesn’t matter what you call it, some things are certain in my opinion:
1. We need to change some thing(s). Namely how we eat, and how much we move and exercise.
2. We need to take responsibility for this ourselves. If we need outside help/counseling/support – by all means go for it!
3. Drugs and surgery can help somewhat, but are not the answers. Long-term lifestyle change(s) are.
