being healthy is hard

I went to my doctor today, and my blood work says I'm healthy, the scale says I'm pretty noticeably overweight.

So I asked my doctor, refer me to a nutritionist, since I haven't been able to do anything about my weight on my own.

The office staff then told me, "no we can't give you a referral since you don't have diabetes"

Great. I actually have to get sick before you can help me to avoid getting sick.

And it's so easy to wade through the crap about "weight loss" to find something reasonable.

Don't they know that we need specific suggestions to improve, not a general "control your eating? get more exercise?" I want help finding spots of time, and I really want someone to deliver food that isn't actively trying to kill me to my door.
