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