Study: GPs 'should support' patients on meal-replacement weight-loss programmes

Comment

Clearly TheManNANNY doesn't care about the ever-growing health budget or overworked GPs. All evidence also shows that if you eat little enough you would lose weight. Therefore, 'failure to lose weight' is a lack of effort/self-inflicted. How about letting these patients take more responsibility instead of NANNYING them every step of the way. You might be happy for your tax to be frittered away on this, but I'm not.
