I agree that this is long overdue! But I've only had one doctor who seemed to have had any training in nutrition and most of them just pass on a comment of "you need to lose weight" without any other guidance, assistance, direction etc. If I had cancer, they would be committing malpractice to just say, you need to fight this and send me home. Hope this helps with forcing doctors to acknowledge that this is an area where for some significant training is needed.
