Doctor Supervised Weight Loss

Over the past 50 years our society has become obsessed with weight loss. Weight containment is, of course, very important for a healthy lifestyle and a long life. The advent of fast food has contributed heavily to the problems with obesity, now so prevalent in society.

We have seen hundreds, if not thousands, of wonder diets in recent years. Some of them work temporarily, some work forever, if you follow them rigidly and some of them are just ridiculous.

If you are serious about weight loss, the first thing that you should do is consult with your doctor. Simply deciding, on your own, to follow this diet or that one, without a full understanding of how your body works and how it may react to dietary changes, can be potentially dangerous.

Everyone is different. Your doctor can advise you, based on your specific circumstances, body type, weight and goals, of the best diet for you.

There is an extreme potential danger of deciding to follow a diet without first consulting with your doctor, as you may have specific conditions that require you to intake particular levels of nutrients.

Your doctor will typically ask you a series of questions aimed at understanding your goals. Then they will work with you to devise a plan, customized for you. This should include exercise, diet and may also include other components, but should never include pharmaceutical products.

A properly supervised weight loss program, if followed rigorously, can result in the desired outcome*. Patience is also very important, as these things take time. It can be dangerous to lose a lot of weight too quickly, and it often reappears after a period of time. It is much more advisable, with medical assistance, to lose weight steadily over a longer period of time, while maintaining your general health*.
