You don’t have to go to a diet doctor to lose weight. You can lose weight on your own, by restricting calories and carbohydrates. What I do is use prescription medicaiton to help you lose weight faster and more easily. The reason you lose weight faster when you see a diet doctor, is mostly because you cheat less. Although prescription appetite suppressants can speed up your metabolism and fat-burning, the main reason patients lose weight faster under medical care is that they have far fewer sweet and starch cravings, so they follow a low calorie, low carbohyrate diet without cheating. Almost all diet doctors in the U.S. use the same diet – a low calorie and low carbohyrate diet for rapid weight loss. Patients start on a bar or formula program for the first 1-4 weeks, and when they can’t stand it any more, move to real food – but drastically restrict calories and carbohydrates.
