In Dr. Fuhrman’s new Food Scoring Guide, he explains that most people have quit on their health. Check out this excerpt:
Most Americans have given up hope of ever achieving their optimal weight and health. They have failed with diets in the past. They think they can’t lose weight, and they don’t think they can change. So they just throw in the towel.And maybe this report supports that indictment. From The Washington Post, here’s how to handle your weight at the doctor’s office. Look:
- If you're sensitive about your weight, ask that your doctor weigh you in a private area -- and enter your weight in your chart without comment.
- If clothing or equipment doesn't fit or is uncomfortable to use, ask if your doctor can change it. Larger exam gowns, blood pressure cuffs and other equipment are available from many medical suppliers.
- Be open to respectful discussions of body weight that don't assign blame. Your doctor or nurse may have helpful suggestions you haven't tried.
- Consider pre-screening physicians.
