The Roots of Obesity Run Deep..

This World Obesity Day, let's make sure the emphasis is on gain in health and not merely loss of weight. Join me and other people with the lived experience, health professionals and organisations as we join together to change the narrative, from one of individual responsibility to one of shared collective responsibility.

Let's not forget the roots of obesity run deep-the causes and determinants are many, and differ from individual to individual. If you are concerned about the impact your weight is having on your health and wellbeing, or have a strong family history of obesity- make an appointment with a doctor who understands obesity.
