Obesity Care May Not Be Best Delivered by PCPs

Understatement, false statement and truer-words-were-never-spoke statement of the year.
To meet the challenges of a growing obesity epidemic, primary care physicians (PCPs) need additional training and may need to refer patients to nutritionists or dietitians to help improve care, according to a national survey of 500 PCPs published online December 20 in BMJ Open.
False statement part - conventional approaches to weight loss are the number one cause of diet failure. See here, here, and here.

Understatement part - "may not be best" as in it never will and is really crappy, let alone not best.

Truer words part - for sure it will not be best delivered by anyone with a conventional sick care approach, including dietitians and nutritionists.

For good info that will lead to success, go here.
