In a nutshell: This study looked at the impact of physician BMI on obesity care, physician self-efficacy, perceptions of role-modeling weight-related health behaviors, and perceptions of patient trust in weight loss advice. Findings suggested that physicians with a normal BMI were more likely to engage their obese patients in weight loss discussions, and had greater confidence in their ability to act as a role model and provide diet and exercise counseling to overweight patients.
