Physician’s Plan Director Acts as Weight Loss Coach for Patients

Weight loss is not easy.   By the time patients’ walk through the doors at any of the six Physician’s Plan locations, they have usually tried it all.  From the shakes to the protein only diets, the points to the grapefruits, they come ready for guidance and lasting results.   The clinical director of our Summerville office, Bobbi Jo, offers just that because she knows that helpless feeling.  She too struggled with her weight for years.  She states, “ Sixty pounds.  I lost sixty pounds.  I started at age twenty-six.  I can relate to what the patients are going through.  I know the struggles.  I can be their weight loss coach.”

At Physician’s Plan, each patient meets with a physician and receives a customized plan tailored for them, their bodies and their nutrition.  For Bobbi Jo, it was cutting out certain foods and actually eating more throughout the day that helped her weigh less.  She says, “I always though that eat less meant weigh less.  But it isn’t true.  I would barely eat all day and once the nighttime came I was starving and would overeat the bad stuff.”  Another culprit that patients often struggle with is trigger foods.   Physicians Plan works with patients to determine their trigger foods and replace them with healthier options.  Bobbi Jo helps patients develop a game plan when it comes to those kinds of foods.  “Mine were refined carbs,” she states, “and I learned that I had to get them completely out of the house.  Remove the temptation, I tell my patients,” she says.
