Studies have shown that up to 90 percent of diabetes, 80 percent of cardiovascular disease and 60 percent of cancers can be prevented through weight loss and other life style intervention with existing knowledge! The only problem is that we do not adequately train our physicians and other health care providers in dealing with the complex issues that lead to weight gain! Therefore, most physicians have nothing to offer their overweight or obese patients to lose weight other than simply say "lose weight" or hand out a diet sheet. This is not useful for most patients as obesity needs a more thorough and structured approach.
