In a survey of 500 GP's and family doctors only 44% claimed success in helping obese patients lose weight, expressing that they need additional training. 

Obesity is becoming a big problem both sides of the Atlantic and if it is not our GP's who will solve the entire problem then it will have to be other professionals such as nutritionists and exercise professionals to fill the skills gap.

Hopefully the growing awareness of the benefits of healthy eating and regular exercise will also start to have some positive effect in balancing the scales.
