"I think I'd prefer that too. A robot doctor wouldn't be judgemental. If I go in there and I haven't lost weight and I've made little effort to improving my health the robo doc or holographic projection (like on Star Trek: Voyager) wouldn't be judgemental. "

The robo doc might program the ships computers to give you smaller portions or even deny you snacks between meals!..... and put you on a diet whether you like it or not.

All the food on the Enterprise came out of the food synthesizer. It might just cut out all the sugar - stick in sweetener...and limit your calories.....

The computer would just scan you as you walked in.....know your weight instantly.....

Then again, I have not seen a 'weight challenged' person on Star Trek. Maybe by stardate whatever they have solved that problem...or the automated food systems have insured no one is over weight!

Careful what you wish for!
