Amber, like many Americans, is overweight. After years of dieting and losing weight and then gaining it back again, she is now more than 40 pounds overweight. She can’t figure out why it is so hard for her to lose weight and keep it off.
She decides that something must be wrong with her to be such a dieting failure. Maybe she has an abnormal metabolism, or maybe she just doesn’t have sufficient willpower. She feels tired most of the time and has very little energy.
She is very busy with two kids and has a demanding job as an elementary school teacher. She tries to cook healthy meals for her family but is often too tired and stressed to bother, so she stops to get fast food on her way home. To make matters worse, her 7-year-old son recently came home from school and said the kids were teasing him for being fat. Amber decides that it is time to make some major changes for the entire family, but she really doesn’t know where to start. She hopes that she can help her son by finding a diet that works for him. A further issue that complicates Amber’s circumstance is the fact that her husband doesn’t have a weight problem, which she must take into account when considering any changes in family meal planning or lifestyle.
She decides to do something she’s never before thought necessary — she makes an appointment with a Registered Dietitian.
Which of Amber’s challenges to weight loss do you think the RD should prioritize first, second, third? Discuss how and why each challenge is meaningful. Given her challenges, what advice and strategies do you think the RD will offer Amber? If Amber chose to take only one piece of the RD’s advice, which piece (or what change) do you think would be most beneficial to Amber?
