I feel that if you care for somebody who is overweight/obese you would tell them that they need to lose weight because of health reasons rather than call them 'Fat' which is usually counterproductive...
 
A similar approach works better when you want to dissuade somebody from smoking, consuming alcohol in excess etc....
 
Any thoughts?

Completely depends on the individual you are dealing with.

 

Some people respond best to soft encouraging approaches. You need to lose weight, you can be healthier and feel better etc. Some people though do need tough love where you tell them point blank "you are overweight/obese etc". They don't respond unless you are tough and blunt.

 

However, you will always have people no matter which approach you use who will get offended and wallow in self pity. You will always have people no matter what approach you use who will care less and live and do as they please.

It was my aim to get like this guy, so I worked out a lot! Although I only have a two pack LOL, I did lose a lot of weight, and am generally a more active guy.

The best motivation is self motivation. Big smile

Agree with all that you say...
 
In my profession, I deal with a lot of people who are suffering the consequences of being fat such as diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure and I'm responsible for their 'better' health and they come to me for answers..such why am I on so many medications, or why do my knees hurt?
 
So I appraoch them with solid facts and data such as if you lose 5% of your body weight you may no longer need meds for yr Blood pressure..and that has worked.
 
But yes, the key is Self Motivation!!
 
And yes, I'm a physician:)

Girl who listens to a physician,  especially about diet, all that they care about is some kind of magic pill to take care of all their diseases, without understanding they are the root cause for most of them
 
one aunty was complaining to my mom , on the one hand insurance is so high, and all that this doctor does is ask me to reduce my weightLOLLOL

Tip to reduce weight: first turn your head to the left and then turn it to the right, repeat this exercise every time you are offered something to eat. Big smile
