Today we listen back to a show from September 2012 on how physicians can help their patients lose weight.
Have you ever been to the doctor and was told, "You really need to lose some weight." While many of us need to slim down, dropping the pounds is easier said than done. Host Charity Nebbe speaks with Dr. Lawrence Apple who studies the best and most efficient ways for physicians to help their patients lose weight.
Obesity has reached epidemic levels in this country and along with it many Americans suffer from serious related health problems. We know that we should lose weight, but how? There is no definitive answer. Host Charity Nebbe talks with Dr. Lawrence Appel about the clinical research he has done on weight loss and what he has discovered.
Losing weight sounds simple in mathematical terms. Burning more calories than you consume equals weight loss, but reality is far more complicated. Host Charity Nebbe explores the science of weight loss with several doctors and nutrition experts to find out why it so difficult for some people to lose weight and why keeping the weight off can be a daily challenge.
