    ​The Parable of the Two Dogs

    I have two dogs of the same breed, Sam and Lulu. Sam is 8 years old, Lulu 3. Sam weighs 88 lb. He is overweight by the charts. I can’t feel his ribs, a standard way to tell if a dog is overweight. Lulu weighs 50 lb, normal by the charts; I can feel her ribs. Sam gets more exercise than Lulu. I feed Sam 50-70% of the amount I feed Lulu at each meal, using the same food. They have no other source of food. Their relative weights are not changing. Neither dog is sick, and their blood tests are normal.

    What can you learn from this true story? The answer is not a trick, and you ought to understand it after reading the two previous MOWs.

    DON’T JUDGE PEOPLE

    ​Judge Not

    The books I’ve recently read have made me aware, again, how complex obesity is. My god, there are viruses that may make you fat, genes, bacteria, ethnicity, age, gender. Most of my patients lose some weight and keep it off, but there is variation. Some lose a lot, some lose a little, a few lose none. Some keep it off, some regain. Some are not following my Ten Orders, others are. Some ‘fess up, others lie. Some think they are not following the orders even when they really are. They assume that if they are not losing weight, THEY must be at fault. 

    They might be. They may not be. It may even be MY fault. It’s just all so darn complicated.
