Tough love for the obese
It's political correctness running amok -- and for once, it's not here in the United States.
It's in the United Kingdom, where docs are now under orders to avoid saying the word "obese" to obese patients.
Yes, a clinical and scientific word with a very specific meaning -- one used with a high degree of accuracy when spoken to a patient -- is now forbidden, because it might make fat people feel bad about that spare tire they're hauling around.
Can you believe this nonsense?
It doesn't end with censorship, either. Docs are also being told they can't place "blame" on the patient. In other words, they have to treat obesity as if it's something that falls from the sky and strikes at random -- not something you do to yourself.
The PC Health Police say it's about being kinder and more respectful to fat people. And while I say that everyone of every size deserves a kind and respectful doctor, everyone of every size also deserves a doc who can speak the truth.
And the truth is, sometimes a little "tough love" is just what the doctor ordered.
If your own doctor won't deliver it, allow me: Obesity is almost always something you do to yourself -- and if you find that offensive, there's an easy way to make sure you never hear uncomfortable words like "obese":
LOSE SOME DARNED WEIGHT!
If you've put the scale someplace where you can't see it... if you wear only pants with elastic waistlines... if you keep telling yourself just a little junk food can't hurt each time you reach for the chips... it's time to look in the mirror and confront the problem head on.
That's the "tough" part. Now here comes the "love," because I'm not here to point out the obvious.
I'm here to give you the power you need to turn it around, and love every minute of it.
The secret is in the delicious low-carb, high-fat diet I've been urging you to follow all along -- the one diet that can bring any oversized waistline under control, whether it's caused by poor diet, medication, disease, a genetic disorder or all of the above.
And right now, it's easier than ever to get started. Read this free report from the Daily Dose archives to learn more.
