So, what IS my issue with professionals proclaiming that “Obesity is not your fault?” Guess you’ll have to listen and find out… More importantly, listen and make up your OWN mind about this issue… and whether fault or blame is what we really need to be focusing on when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle!
