    They’re not going to give you diet pills especially at your age. Most don’t work, and the few that do have risks associated with them, and at the end of the day don’t change your behaviours which caused you to be this weight in the first place. Until you change those behaviours, any attempts at weight loss will be temporary only.

    They’ll start by taking measurements to see how overweight you are (and to track your progress), as well as likely some blood tests to check to see if you have any underlying medical conditions contributing to your weight (e.g. a thyroid condition), or if you have developed any conditions because of your weight (e.g. diabetes).

    As for planning, they’ll probably start with the food pyramid because it’s solid information about what you should be eating and in what quantities (e.g, 5-10 servings of fruits or vegetables per day), but gives you enough flexibility to work with some of your own preferences and dislikes. They will likely also focus on what proper portion sizes look like (e.g. just 1/2 cup of rice or pasta is 1 serving of grains, yet most people eat 1 cup of rice or 1.5-2 cups of cooked pasta in one sitting).

    The doctor may handle the eating plan himself, or he may refer you to a dietitian who can work more closely with you in changing what you eat, and your attitudes towards food. (e.g. how to tell the difference from hungry from boredom/stress/sadness versus genuine physical hunger, and strategies to deal with that).

    Good luck! The first few steps are always the hardest, but if you stick to it I promise it does get easier.

    You should keep your diet which keeps saturated fats to a minimum but includes olive, canola, macadamia nuts, and avocados. Certain unfavorable carbohydrates are restricted because they release glucose quickly: grains, breads, pasta, rice, and other similar starches, a deviation from conventional definitions of a good diet.

    Drink plenty of water or other calorie-free beverages, Start by focusing on getting the recommended 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables each day
