Weight loss medical doctor?

Nick, my medical doctor says it’s all about the calories.


I suggest the following to your weight-loss medical doctor (MD):


If need-be, go back to school and consider…

+ Re-educate on chemical / mechanical digestion.

+ Focus on: micro/mac nutrient profile of fill in the blank.

+ Complete courses in nutrition biochemistry. + Consider before / after results / outcomes.


Where’s his / her evidence of effectiveness?


He says it’s good to create a deficit.

I consider that to be woefully lacking / inadequate…why?

  • Takes away responsibility and accountability (from the following above).
  1. Some MDs (even RDs) focus on calories in-out because it’s simple.
  2. However, nutrition biochemistry isn’t that simple.
  3. How the body works can be complex.
  4. Furthermore, choosing foods based on calories (takes focus away from food-quality = micro-nutrients).
  • Not sustainable.
  1. A high % cannot sustain on a low-calorie diet / deficit diets (consider: micro/macro nutrients).
  2. It’s important to consider where calories are derived from.
  • It’s a metabolic-wrecking-ball!

Now, however, there’s a timeline to this.

  • In the beginning, s/he may experience weight loss…
  • However, what type of weight loss…muscle or fat?
  • After 6 months to a year…what’s the outcome?


At your age…do you see yourself in constant starvation and strenuous exercise?

My MD says I need to work out and diet

That’ll create a greater deficit – how?

  • Micro / macro nutrient deficiencies.
  • Again, metabolic-wrecking-ball!


My MD says I should get all my nutrients from a well balance diet!

  1. What’s a well-balance diet?
  2. Based on who/what definition…criteria?
  3. Who’s designing this well balance diet?

A well-balance diet shouldn’t be created based solely on calories! Furthermore, does your MD have the training to address nutrition issues? How does your MD measure this?

  • Test / labs?


Again, long-term…where’s the evidence to support whatever claim?

+ Client case-studies.

+ Transformation footage.

+ Legit reviews / testimonials.


Most importantly….consider your MDs education…

? what his / her training…

? in what field ?
