As of January 29, 2016, Eric Sodicoff MD has been certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM) as an ABOM Diplomate. ABOM Diplomates are specialists in obesity medicine who undergo rigorous training and an extensive examination process to achieve this designation. This designation represents the highest level of achievement in the medical specialty of obesity medicine.
The American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM) serves the public and the field of obesity medicine by establishing a credentialing protocol and maintaining standards for assessment and certification of candidate physicians. Certification as a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM) signifies excellence in the practice of obesity medicine and distinguishes a physician as having achieved a high level of competency and understanding in obesity care. ABOM collaborates with the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) to administer the annual credentialing exam.
I am also a member of the Obesity Medicine Association (formerly know as the American Society of Bariatric Physicians)

Are the new US Dietary Guidelines “an evidence-free zone”? Why are the new US Dietary Guidelines still issuing warnings about saturated fat in 2016? And why are they still mumbling about cholesterol, even after removing the limit and even after their own preliminary report clearly said cholesterol is “no longer a nutrient of concern”? Even more disturbingly, the guidelines pretend to have scientific support when in fact there is little to no evidence supporting them. A prominent cardiologist writing in the prestigious Annals of Internal Medicine yesterday even calls the guidelines “an evidence-free zone”! Pretty remarkable, and it shows how non-existent the consensus behind the guidelines is.
