Show Notes

In this episode, Obesity Medicine Specialist and OMA Clinical Education Director Dr. Nicholas Pennings joins NP Obesity Treatment Center owner Dr. Angela Golden to debunk common myths surrounding obesity and discuss effective strategies for supporting patients with obesity.

Today's topics include the misconception of obesity as being a "condition of will power" as opposed to a chronic, progressive, relapsing and treatable disease; the importance of ongoing clinician education concerning obesity; how obesity impacts the cancer rate; tips for helping patients re-frame their internal biases; as well as productive goal-setting for lasting results and the necessity of food planning and preparation.
