The doctor is the person in charge of your treatment. He or she will be there, with the help of the team of health professionals, to motivate you throughout the entire process. After assessing your condition, the doctor will determine your excess weight, set weight loss goals and draw up dietary guidelines. Your doctor is also the person who decides when you should move from one step of the programme to the next. With the help of the physical trainers, the doctor creates a personalised exercise regime for each patient and for each step of the programme. Your prescribing doctor will help you stay motivated throughout the treatment and to deal with any difficulties that may arise.
