Trying to lose weight? Study: Ask for help
Researchers say doctor support key in shedding pounds
Losing weight can be challenging, but new research found seeking professional help is the secret behind losing those extra pounds.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins University found obese patients who received support from their physicians tended to lose more weight, compared to those who dieted on their own.
The study also asked 300 patients to rate how helpful their doctors were as they went through a weight-loss program.
Results showed those who gave their doctors a high ranking were able to lose weight easier, compared to those who gave a low ranking.
