Q and A with Dr. Garcia
We couldn’t help but notice that our own Dr. Garcia has been cruising around looking thinner these days. We thought it was the perfect time to pin him down and ask Dr. G about Summer, Weight Loss, and his active life in Tampa Bay.
Check out our first in a series of interviews below:
So, Dr. G, looks like you’ve lost some weight lately, what’s up?
25 lbs actually, I’m on my own program these days! It’s all about maintenance, and sometimes you just need to check in on how you’re treating your body.
Well, you look good. Can’t all be diet, what do you like to do to stay active?
I work out with a trainer twice a week and do pilates twice a week. And I’ll throw in a day of cardio, or just chase after my grandkids!
What’s your favorite Summer activity?
I love going to the beach. The grandkids and I love to kayak, it’s my happy place.
Favorite healthy summer snack?
Fruits, there is so much good fruit in season this time of year. Although my family makes fun of me cause I like the peaches before they’re ripe when they’re still hard.
Favorite Splurge snack?
Oh, at the beach, I’m known to get into the chips and salsa or dip. All about moderation!
What’s your go-to order when eating out?
I’m big into grilled chicken, side of broccoli, and I get a salad with olive oil and vinegar, but I’m gonna do a small roll from the bread basket too, especially if they’re warm.
Favorite vacation spot?
My wife and I love escaping to Vegas, a little gambling, a lot of walking, it’s great.
What’s your go-to Garcia Weight Loss supplement?
Well, I take a few of ours, but I’m a huge believer in our Omega3’s. They’re my must-have, great for your heart, your joints, they can help protect against cancer, the list of benefits goes on and on.
Ok, let’s get real…do you use any of the Aesthetic Services offered at your centers?
Haha, oh, here we go…yes, I do. I only want to offer services to our patients that I believe can make a positive difference. I’ve done Botox and fillers, Alice is great. We got a new Venus Freeze machine last year that I’ve used on some trouble areas. Now you know all my secrets.
