Abstract

Obesity is a problem of public health, seen as a "moral panic," which disables the obese person from social acceptance. For obese nutritionists the paradox between the premises of their jobs and their state of morbidity makes the debate complex by the conflict with the professional identity. This study sought to bring to discussion the meanings of health care adopted by obese nutritionists in Salvador and to understand their experiences with their obesity in everyday life. The study was based on a qualitative approach, through semi-structured interviews with eight narratives on being an obese nutritionist, analysed under hermeneutics basis. The research revealed that being obese generates a stigma which is worse to the nutritionist, now seen simultaneously as unable to care for oneself and on being obese. Some of the stories of suffering seen on job routine are: strangeness of the body, social exclusion, strategies for defence on the relation professional-patient, desperate rely on miraculous diet plans which are far away from the scientific discourse, and the obese body seen as imprisonment. It is concluded that institutions of public health must have knowledge of this problem and must establish strategies to the condition of obese nutritionists, considering that this contradiction may happen on different occupations.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 8. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 15 September 2017.
All research outputs
#3,226,769
of 17,944,974 outputs
Outputs from Ciência & Saúde Coletiva
#62
of 834 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#48,257
of 247,334 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Ciência & Saúde Coletiva
#3
of 24 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,944,974 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 81st percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 834 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.5. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 247,334 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 24 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% of its contemporaries.
