If you are an overweight or obese person and planning to get a control on your pound scale what is your mental architecture about the doctor you visit? Well what I want to mean is, do your doctor’s physical outfit make you motivated to stick to their dietary health advises. To dilute the issue furthermore- how comfortable are you as an overweight individual to get health tips from a slim and trim doctor.
Whatever your answer is here is what studies say about this particular behavior of overweight/obese persons. The finding is that obese patients trust health related dietary advice given by a obese doctor more. This is probably due to the feeling of being in same situation and sharing same difficulties due to increased body weight. But what will happen if the doctor loses weight in the meantime, because one can’t keep that overweight figure forever to inspire his/her patients. Well answer to it will also be available someday, hopefully.
