You go to for a doctor visit and he takes a sample of your blood and finds out you have very high cholesterol and you are very overweight.

And weight loss and diet drugs are big these days. Or they will tell you that you need to go on a diet and give you a few sheets of information on some supposedly healthy foods to eat and your on your way. Or even worse, suggest Gastric Bypass Surgery!
The trouble is most all people in this society will never follow these instructions. They are too vague and hard to follow. Drugs are easy to take but will make you sick from-?one or more-?side effects either right away or a few days or weeks later.
Let you doctor fix your broken leg or arm but don’t let him or her prescribe weight loss medications or diet remedies.
Believe me, I have tried this and it doesn’t work. Only reducing the amount of calories you take in and giving your body-?the nutrition-?it needs will get your weight off and get you feeling good again.
