Thank you for your kind words about my article on 'The Biggest Loser SA'. It is disgraceful that the public and even some health professionals have this stupid attitude to anyone who is not a size 3. On the one hand we have our medical journals preaching about the Obesity Epidemic and on the other hand we have the short-sighted attitude of the medical aids that do not regard obesity as a disease, which is it. However as I just said to Savannah, I did attend a 'Batriatic Worskhop' last week where it became evident that there is a movement towards improving this attitude - I promise to write something on the workshop for next week's DietDoc Topic.
Never let the ideas of stupid and prejudiced people discourage you from believing in yourself.
