Sometimes, in Deep Breath In, we only get a chance to include a brief bit of a much longer conversation with our guests. In these Deep Breaths, we're going to bring you some of those more in depth conversations. This is long conversation with Stephanie DiGiorgio, GP and expert on obesity, who had a lot of advice on how GPs can really help their patients lose weight. She talks about having non-stigmatising conversations, why she thinks going for 10% body weight loss is much more achievable than getting to a specific BMI, and delves into the psychology behind being overweight.
