Simple Weight Management for the Medical Ofﬁce by Dave Edmiston,M.D.PROBLEM ; More than 69% of the American population is overweight and 36% are obese [CDC] thatis directly related to signiﬁcantly increased risks for CVD, strokes, diabetes, cancer, osteoarthritis, etc.And the situation is escalating - we are in the midst of an epidemic - our patients need help.BACKGROUND : Doctors’ recommendations have ranged from “Eat Less, Exercise More” to in ofﬁceassistance with counseling, classes, handouts etc., to outsourcing, to formal weight loss businessesin the community. However, the obesity numbers continue to climb. Why?It is because most weight loss programs are too complicated for the medical ofﬁce to institute or forthe patient to follow. They require major changes in the way things are done in terms of the scripting,patient ﬂow, increased encounter time in the ofﬁce, or the food • exercise • activity requirementsprescribed outside the ofﬁce. As a result, medical ofﬁces either don’t become involved or usually losetheir enthusiasm. Patients give up...SOLUTION : Make it simple - easy for the doctor’s ofﬁce & for the patient. Our program is incrediblysimple. Patients are willing to change if they can see the big picture especially if their place in it isgetting smaller (thinner). Make it effective - with a guarantee of results. Make it fun. If a program cando these three things, it will work. This one does.
