Topic of tonight’s talk: Obesity, the epidemic.
Define the problem: 1 in 2 Malaysians are overweight or obese.
Contributing factors: food is abundant and tastes great, facebook makes everyone hungry (just look at all the food related posts), facebook makes people less likely to go and exercise (an assumption, some of my friends love to post about their physical exertions, which in theory may inspire others to follow suit).
Target audience: whoever shows up tonight.
Strategy development: two behaviours, one is diet and the second physical activity.
Evaluation: determine the goals.
Implementation: this is the most difficult part usually.
One memorable chat with a patient:
Patient: Doctor, I work from 7am to 7pm, I don’t have time to exercise.
Doctor: Get up at 5am and exercise then.
Patient: At 5am I have to wake my son up.
Doctor: Then get up at 4am and exercise.
Next time, remind me not to volunteer for these health talks. — feeling free.See More
