ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's perspectives on the need for medical practitioners to exert more effort to help obese patients to lose weight in the U.S. She cited the direct costs associated with obesity on the national health expenditures of the country. She argues that reminding patients how to eat properly and exercise is a more ethical practice and less costly when compared to bariatric surgery.
