I need to lose 20 pounds, can you do that?

I need to lose 20 pounds, can you do it? People often mention such a request, the exact answer on the phone is: “I dont know”, because I do not know the age, the health status, medical history, diet and life styles. So my answer is often: “Can you come to my office to let me see, ask a few questions, maybe I can answer your question.” Then, even if it is to understand the disease, not guarantee to lose weight 20 pounds, and some it could even have a slimming effect. For example, there is a family history of obesity, diabetes has a long history, old age, overall physical condition is not good, and so, therefore, is the old saying goes, the treatment effect will be very different, because everyone’s situation is not the same.
