Doctors Knowledge of Nutrition

I recently came across a CBC article (linked below) about an interview with Dr. Brian Goldman regarding how well equipped doctors are to deal with nutrition and obesity related health concerns. According to the article, medical schools aren't teaching enough about nutrition and obesity, resulting in doctors falling back on misconceptions about weight loss. In the end, the article suggests that Registered Dieticians and Health Coaches are really the ones to ask about nutrition and obesity.
