DOCTORS have clarified that if there was ‘one weird trick’ to weight loss they would not hate it and would definitely tell you.
GPs stressed that, contrary to internet advertisements, they are not prone to irrational loathing of anyone offering successful weight-loss solutions.
Dr Helen Archer said: “Oddly enough, when I tell every bloody patient I see to lose weight it’s because I want them to lose weight.
“It would make my job at least 50 per cent easier, so I promise you I’m not keeping any ‘secrets’.
“There is no, repeat no, wide-ranging conspiracy among the medical profession to stop you losing weight. Very much the reverse.”
Roy Hobbs, from Stevenage, said: “They say that, but then all they recommend is diet and exercise and everyone knows they don’t work.
“Doctors are full of hate. I see it in their eyes.”
