Canada’s New Obesity Guidelines

The new Canadian Obesity Guidelines published last Tuesday (Aug. 4, 2020) make a clear statement that “Obesity Matters”. Dr. Sean Wharton, co-lead author of the guidelines is championing the notion that obesity is a chronic disease and that the stigma around obesity must be curbed. In this article, he states “We’re going to more so focus on healthy eating, something we call medical nutrition therapy” rather than the WHO’s Eat Less and Exercise More ‘weight loss’ advice that has been driving our measure of success.

It’s time to we got to the bottom of this obesity epidemic by treating those most affected with the help, patience, resources, and respect they deserve.
