Obesity Doctor UK
Online medical management of weight issues
If you are here because you would like to take control of your weight and you think that your psychological relationship with food is holding you back, this is the right website for you.
Recognising that your weight problems have a psychological or neurobiological element represents an important step towards improving your mental – and physical – health.
- Do your emotions affect what and when you eat?
- Do you have a love/hate relationship with food?
- Do you feel stuck, having tried everything but feeling like it’s never enough?
At times food can feel like the enemy when tackling weight issues but at the same time, food feels like an important friend and ally to you in your darkest times. Food is a rewarding substance for humans and can affect mood powerfully. Understanding the multiple roles food serves in our social, personal and emotional lives forms an important part of achieving sustainable changes.
