Weight Loss Information

by : Medifast

The day comes for your doctors visit and he does a physical on you and finds out you have very high cholesterol and triglycerides not to mention being very overweight. The doctor will give you a quick diagnosis and start writing a prescription for Lipitor or some other cholesterol lowering medication. Then he will tell you that you will need to be on these drugs for the rest of your life!

The fact is that drug industry marketing is using tactics to persuade doctors, often through payoffs to prescribe drugs that patients do not need or should not use or for which there may be different alternatives.

Do not get me wrong, doctors can provide some good services but with regards to your health and wellness they could care less. Go ahead and see for yourself. See your doctors and have them give you a physical. They will do a few small tests and then whip out a pen and paper and tell you to fill the prescription they hand you.

Lets face it, weight loss and diet drugs are big these days and some shady doctors are recommending these. Or they will tell you that you need to go on a diet and give you a few sheets of information with some healthy foods diet and tell you to do on it and send you on your merry way. They might even suggest you undergo drastic Gastric Bypass Surgery!

The trouble is most all people in this society is you will never be able to follow these instructions for more than a week or two. They are too vague and hard to follow and there are too many fast food temptations out in our modern society. Drugs are easy to take but will make you sick from one or more side effects either right away or a few days or weeks later.

Let you doctor fix your broken hand or leg but do not let him or her prescribe weight loss medications or diet plans.

Believe me, I have tried this and it does not work. Only reducing the amount of calories you take in and giving your body the nutrition it needs will get your weight off and get you feeling good again.

Many chiropractic physicians today know what doctors are trying to do to you and are using a different approach in their practices to help people who have tried to use a doctors approach to weight loss and failed.
