“As a healthcare worker, it is our duty to spread the current knowledge and science of obesity in our communities. I gave lectures for obesity management in residency programs and other settings in my local communities. Everywhere I went, I recognized an intense interest in weight management. “

Dr. Jennifer Ashton, OB/GYN

” I wish that physicians and the lay public alike understood that obesity is not as simple as ‘eating less and moving more.’ It was only in studying for certification that I learned about principles like the ‘set-point theory’ or the ‘defense of fatness’ in which the body seeks to return to its heaviest weight even IF significant weight loss is achieved. “
