Weight Loss: Manage your weight, improve your health

Did you make a New Year’s Resolution to lose weight? You are not alone! According to Gallup research:

  • 56% of Americans want to lose weight
  • the average amount of weight Americans want to shed is 16lb.
  • a third of Americans are considered obese
  • obesity is a national epidemic

The presenter, an M.D., non-surgically lost 100lb. over a year’s time beginning August 20, 2011. She used no special foods, medicines or weight loss products. She did use a certain exercise routine and a certain set of rules about food consumption, which she will share with the audience. But the presenter also found that, to lose significant weight, she needed to adopt a philosophy of weight loss. She found tips that helped her to stick to her principles every day.

If you are interested in losing weight, or are supporting the weight-loss success of someone close to you, and surgery is not part of the plan, you are invited to listen as one successful dieter and medical doctor shares her story.
