We can’t even get the doctors to consistently ask about weight

Here’s an amazing new Cochrane analysis that, if asked, men tend to lose more weight.  The amount of weight they lost if just asked about weight by their doctors was more than the weight lost by using a weight loss drug.  But we can’t seem to get doctors to consistently change their behavior and ask patients about weight.  Women, by the way, did not lose weight just because their doctors asked about it.  But they did slap the doctor (just kidding). 

Here’s the link to the study report.
