What Dr. Hamilton could say on
the Topic of Obesity:

March is Obesity Awareness month. Here’s some things we can talk about:

      • The Problem: Obesity is actually a disease and not a lifestyle.
      • Since Covid, Americans are paying more attention to obesity. 

      • TROA bill: Treat, Reduce Obesity Act). Politicians want to add more obesity coverage . . . Covering Obesity as the Disease.
      • Obesity is not a calories in/calories out equation.
        There are many other factors, i.e., the neuroscience of it. 
      • As a society, we are focused on blame and that “they chose it.” People don’t choose to be obese. This is a real disease and should be diagnosed and treated that way. 
      • Solutions: There needs to be policy coverage to help more people and make bariatric surgery available to more people. This is a metabolic disease.
