Özet

Aim: To assess how weight-loss diets tend to move away from the authority of conventional medicine and become a field of abuse. Endocrinologists and specialists on metabolic diseases are rarely called upon to speak about obesity, whereas physicians from unrelated fields or nonphysicians frequently appear in the media.
