In January, I was consulting with a group of doctors who specialize in obesity education. As über intelligent people are prone to do, they were speaking in a high-level code language that reminded me of my systematic theology courses. To make it even more confusing they had just reviewed several recently released studies about obesity treatment. I will readily admit I was lost in the conversation and unsure how I could help them with their project.
I interrupted. “Can you please, in two or three sentences, explain to me why physicians have a hard time treating obesity in their practice? Can you translate all of this into plain English for me? I can’t help you until I wrap my arms around what the problem is.”
