Brain-Body Breakthroughs – A new approach to weight loss. Part 1. Larry McCleary, M.D., author of Feed Your Brain Lose Your Belly

If you have ever asked your doctor how to lose weight the response has probably been that you need to “eat less and exercise more” with the caveat that you should get accustomed to feeling hungry. We have also been told to banish fat from our plates if we want to lose weight and avoid a heart attack. If you’ve tried this approach and are heavier than ever before, you need to listen to this program.

Kirstie Alley is the poster-child for yo-yo dieting based on these recommendations and exemplifies how what we have been told for the past 30+ years is all wrong.

The MyPlate (the new USDA dietary guidelines) approach is at the epicenter of a vortex of poor food choices and allows us to eat a diet that is one third sugar and two thirds empty calories. It is no surprise that obesity is rampant and is now a major risk factor for cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular disease and has even eclipsed alcohol as the major cause of liver disease.

Tune in to hear how “sticky” fat cells are the culprits behind unwanted weight gain and are the cause of those dreaded weight-loss “plateaus.”

Learn what you need to know to make healthy food choices and get prepared for the resistance your doctor will give you when you confront him/her with what you are about to hear.
