Ever wonder what diet doctors follow? Physicians dole out advice, but what do they do in their own lives? That’s what a survey advised by Duke University and the University of North Carolina sought to uncover when they asked 515 doctors about diets: What did they recommend for short-term weight loss and for long-term health, and how did they themselves eat?
