Oh, brother! More touchy-feely crap. Most patients are not interested in changing their lifestyle no matter how you address it. And do not ever tell me a patient cannot afford to eat healthy. This is pure BS. They are willing to spend $$ on Coke, fast food, and the many processed foods found in their kitchen, but WILL NOT cook beans, eggs, rice, etc., all cheap meals, for their health. I am tired of coddling patients; they are grown adults who (mostly) make their own decisions. They should be taught on the consequences of their bad choices, not the touchy-feely crap to make them feel okay. Meet them where they are but don't be afraid to call a spade a spade.
