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 the following…

+ Re-educate on chemical / mechanical digestion.

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

+ Complete nutrition biochemistry courses.

+ Consider before / after results & outcomes.

 

Where’s his / her evidence of effectiveness?

 

He says, “it’s good to create a deficit.”

That mindset takes away responsibility and accountability (from the following above).

  1. Some MDs (even RDs) focus on calories in-out approach 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).
  • 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, “diet and exercise more.”

Really, that’ll create a greater deficit – how?

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

 

My MD says, “we get all nutrients from a well balance diet!”

We?! Anyway….here are some questions…

  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 based solely on calories! Furthermore, does your MD have the training (or background) 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…

? his / her training ?

? background ?

? in what field ?
