MONDAY, Jan. 30 (HealthDay News) -- A doctor who packs a few extra pounds may be unlikely to advise you to shed your own excess weight, a new study suggests.
Overweight physicians who responded to a survey disclosed that they're less likely than other doctors to talk to their obese patients about weight control.
When it comes to talking to patients about losing pounds, "in general, doctors are not doing a good job. But you can't look at overweight doctors and say, 'You're the problem," said study author Sara Bleich, an assistant professor of health policy at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

I work with medical professionals and i can tell you, they are not that great. Most of them have no idea about latest studies, they stuck on medications that pharmaceutical reps tell them to sell and its just huge disappointing. I think its is a time for people to take their own health in their hands and become educated about this subject.
