Crack Doctors, part 3

Not all doctors are qualified to practice medicine. After surveying thousands of physicians, researchers at  Massachusetts General Hospital found that 17 percent had direct personal knowledge of an impaired or incompetent colleague in their hospital or practice over the last three years. There are many more doctors who may appear like a legitimate medical professional to colleagues, but behind closed doors, break a number of protocols.  As you’ve learned so far in our three-part series about how to avoid crack doctors, they are doling out pills like candy and rushing you along to surgery without discussing the possible risks involved. Here are some other tips to help you avoid crack doctors and lose weight a healthy and natural way.

Tip #1: Avoid crack doctors who cannot show you evidence of their credentials. Always ask who they are certified by and go to the certifying body’s website to verify the doctor’s identity. You’d be surprised how many doctors produce bogus certificates and claim association with a particular organization when, in reality, they have no such ties at all! In California, you may also use the  Medical Board of California Look-Up.

Tip #2: Avoid crack doctors who offer you the easy way out. You cannot healthily lose 10 or more pounds in one or two weeks. A healthy amount to lose is 1-2 pounds per week. You don’t need chemicals to encourage your metabolism to speed up and you will never find a magical pill that “melts off belly fat.” Prescription or not, only extremely rare cases will require medication. For instance, if you have thyroid problems, you may actually have a slower-than-normal metabolism. Even so, any legitimate doctor would recommend that you quit smoking, exercise regularly and eat a healthy, balanced diet.

Tip #4: Avoid crack doctors by losing weight a healthier way! You don’t need surgeries or supplements. All you need is motivation and firm resolve. If you want to lose weight and keep it off, you need a whole new perspective, a new routine and a new way of behaving. Maintaining body weight is a life-long commitment, but it can be an enjoyable one if you’re exposed to various exercises that are actually enjoyable. Joining a gym and signing up with a personal trainer is the perfect way to reach your goals. A personal trainer will develop an individualized program that meets your needs and includes workout routines, as well as a nutritional plan. Best of all, you’ll get the motivation you need, without all the dangerous side effects.
