I might just fire my doctor

I have fought twenty extra pounds for many years.  I eat the right things, exercise quite a bit, and not too much changes on the scale. At a doctor appt a few months ago, after nagging me once again about my weight, my doctor sarcastically said to me, "i guess the food just tastes so good". The more I think back on it, the angrier I get. His assumption is that the extra weight is a simple function of just eating too much. It makes me wonder if he is keeping up with new findings in weight loss research. Seems quite a bit more complex than an extra cookie.. The lack of respect that remark reflected is what has stayed with me. Instead of exploring what I've done  and suggesting strategies, I got a demeaning and sarcastic comment. Guess I will be looking for a new doctor.
