I am a former Bariatric Patient. I have a keen desire to introduce and advocate for a greater focus on mental and emotional well-being of the bariatric patients. The Current landscape of our medical industry lacks in its understanding and teaching regarding obesity treatments. We can no longer believe in the tail of "move more and eat less".
We need to treat today's obese generations through a greater focus on our resources for new research and development of possible treatments and cures. Today we require a full bio-psychosocial approach when it comes to understanding and treating obesity. Together we can win, apart we will only flounder.
