All weight loss programs tell you to see your doctor before embarking on any weight loss scheme. This is “CYA” ( cover your arse ) in case some illness develops which you can attribute to losing weight or changing your eating habits and sue them.
I saw my Doctor and he told me i was “OBESE” and that I should lose some weight. He did not have any fantastic ways to do this on offer In fact his advice or suggestions came down to 3 options
- Lap Band Surgery
- Taking drugs to supress appetite
- Eat Less
I have chosen to eat less!
Whilst I do think checking with your Doctor is a good idea if You are significantly overweight as I am then Losing weight will have a positive effect on your overall health.
