“How much obesity has to be created in a single decade for people to realize that diet has to be responsible for it?”
Robert Atkins

Dr. Atkins did not believe in blaming people for being fat. He looked for solutions for his patients. He recognized that some of us cannot process carbs without gaining weight and having disordered metabolisms and blood sugar swings as a result. He recognized the role of insulin long before Dr. Fung.

I think compassion is called for, towards ourselves and others, whether obesity is categorized as a disease or not.
