I wish my doctor had been more frank.

I would go to the doctor and complain of pain or feeling bad. She'd give me a prescription for pain and the suggest that losing some weight would help. I'd try to lose weight, but didn't notice a difference in the pain levels.
I recently made a focused effort to cut sugar and processed foods from my eating plan. I feel so much better.
I wish that instead of vague "lose weight" advice she had said "you will feel better if you give up sugar. You might lose weight, but even if you don't, you'll feel better."
