Infusing Compassion into the “War” on Obesity

AMY GARDNER / January 21, 2011

A dietitian posted this article on twitter and it is so well-written, I decided to include it here.  We have to look at the effects of this “war” on obesity and ask ourselves “what are we really fighting?”.  So often I hear leaders in the field of obesity described as warriors.  Alternately, I hear my clients talk about feeling attacked and victimized.  The author of this article does an excellent job of explaining exactly why we need to infuse some compassion into this battle!
