It is crucial for us to be authentic. Authentic in relation to reality, that obesity is a disease, that the fat mass is regulated by a highly sophisticated and elegant hormonal neuroendocrine system that is very efficient in order to actively preserve and defend the fat mass. This 'fat mass preserving system' is however, very frustrating for the patient seeking weight loss. We are therefore being authentic by offering a professional service that is not distracted by feel-good health care professional thinking that in itself can develop to be a barrier in the optimal course of obesity treatment.
Our foundation rest on scientific evaluations in internatioanl peer reviewed scientific journals. We have developed an evidence-based model aimed at treating obesity and its complications. It is essential to understand that obesity is a chronic disease, that fat mass is actively being preserved, and as a health care professional, to master the new health pedagogy that encorporate these insights. It is not just a question of motivation or just to eat less and move more. Our evidence base and professionalism is the reason why one as a patient can feel safe and identify with our values and messages.
