I’ve been a medical doctor with a medical practice for more than 35 years. I have delivered more than 2,000 babies and I like to say that I take care of people from “cradle to grave.” One of the most common problems I see in my practice and throughout the entire country is weight control and obesity. Obesity in this country is at an all-time high and growing. More than two thirds of all Americans are overweight and more than one third are actually medically defined as obese. That’s over 160 million people that need to lose weight in order to get and stay healthy. It is a nation-wide epidemic.

 

Obesity has been clinically proven to lead to serious diseases, including:

Coronary heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure

Type 2 diabetes

Cancers, such as endometrial, breast, and colon cancer

High total cholesterol or high levels of triglycerides

Liver and gallbladder disease
