A Horrifying National Post Article - Dr Sue's Radio Interview on Obesity Stigma

>> Wednesday, September 18, 2013






I was asked to interview on the Kingkade & Kelly radio talk show this week, in response to a recent article in the National Post.  The article, titled (brace yourself) 'Fat acceptance is not the answer to obesity', states that (AND I QUOTE):

"Doctors rightly resent spending time and expertise helping people whose health problems are self-inflicted"

and 

"health professionals who judge their patients are doing them a favour"

Really??  REALLY??  The National Post should be categorically ashamed of themselves for publication of such complete and utter trash.  I had a mouthful of things to say about this topic (as I'm sure you can imagine) - check out the recorded interview here!

I welcome your comments.

A HEARTFELT WELCOME!

I am excited that you have arrived at my site, and I hope you are too - consider this the first step towards a Healthier New You!! As a medical doctor, Endocrinologist, and obesity specialist, I am absolutely passionate about helping people with weight management. Though there is certainly no magic cure for obesity, there IS a successful treatment plan out there for you - it is all about understanding the elements that contribute to your personal weight struggle, and then finding the treatment plan that suits your needs and your lifestyle. The way to finding your personal solution is to learn as much as you can about obesity: how our toxic environment has shaped us into an overweight society; the diversity of contributors to obesity; and what the treatment options out there are really all about. Knowledge Is Power!!
