IF IT’S TIME TO TAKE CON­TROL OF YOUR WEIGHT, GET THE RIGHT AD­VICE. TALK TO YOUR DOC­TOR.

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Health News -

Your doc­tor is a trusted source, so put them on your side when you start your weight-loss jour­ney. We asked GP Dr Ge­or­gia Ri­gas for her ad­vice on get­ting the ball rolling…

HOW DO I BRING IT UP?

“Book a long ap­point­ment with your GP to dis­cuss your con­cerns. This will al­low enough time to dis­cuss your con­cerns with­out ei­ther of you feel­ing rushed or pres­sured.”

HOW CAN MY GP HELP ME?

“Your GP can help tai­lor weight-loss ad­vice to your needs, set re­al­is­tic goals and will sup­port you on your weight-loss jour­ney.”

WHY SHOULD I LOSE WEIGHT?

“We know that if you’re over­weight or obese, even a 5-10 per cent loss off your start­ing weight can make a big dif­fer­ence to your over­all health.”

WILL MY GP UN­DER­STAND?

“Yes. Your GP is a trusted part­ner in your health, and they’re on your side.”
