Patients often approach GPs with forms to fill out before they can embark on some low calorie diets.  You may find this information useful:

You do not have to fill out these forms
You can charge for filling out the form
Much of the data, weight and BP is part of normal GMS care
You can sign the form but still make it clear and document that you are not endorsing the diet plan
