Not quite all of us have. I was thin for much of my life and when I moved into the overweight range (which I was never told was officially "overweight") and expressed concern about the extra pounds to my doctor, I was simply told I should try to exercise more. That was it. When I was later put on meds that caused me to gain 50 lbs in 6 months and expressed my upset about it, I was told that the positive consequences of the meds outweighed the negative consequences (which they didn't by the way). I've never been given any advice on losing weight by a doctor. Everything I learned about weight loss, I learned through my own research.
