The first question you should ask the specialist is "Do I need to lose weight?", because you might have the impression that you are dealing with a weight problem, but you might only need to exercise a little for toning your body, and looking better. Also, you might experience water retention, and your body might only by swollen. The specialists would be able to check your health state and provide you the right metabolic care, so you should start the conversation with this question. In case the doctor considers that you have to lose some weight, you should ask them if you are healthy enough to start a diet, or they have an alternative solution. Sometimes even if you have to lose weight, you would not have to follow a diet, because the key is to eat healthy, and prepare food according to the recipes your grandmother had. In modern times, people are not eating healthy enough and they gain in weight, but once they adopt a healthy diet, their body would start working properly, and they would be able to lose the pounds they are struggling with.

Also, do not forget to ask your doctor how much weight you should lose. Sometime patients come to a doctor having in mind to lose many pounds but the specialist recommends something else, because they take into consideration some specific body factors, you might not be aware of. The following question should be "Does my health affects my health state?", because sometimes people only have the wrong impression that they should lose weight, because they do not exercise on a regularly basis, and their body does not have the look they would want. So you might have to keep the weight you have, and include healthy aliments in your diet and follow an exercise program to improve your health, because your weight is not the one that affects it. In case your health is influenced by your weight, then the doctor would inform you what adjustments you should do in order to lose some pounds and improve your state.
