Eat less, exercise more. For the two of every three Americans struggling with their weight, this simplistic "solution" often falls short. Weight loss specialist Dr. Tinuade Olusegun—Dr. O to her patients—experienced firsthand the complexity of the obesity epidemic when she battled for years to lose excess pounds. The advice she'd doled out to patients—eat less, exercise more—failed her, and she embarked on a search for answers: what made her gain the weight? Why couldn't she lose it? What really is obesity? In Know More, Weigh Less, Dr. O shares her personal story and her discovery of new, and sometimes controversial, weight loss methods that work. In this book, you will learn: • A new definition for "obesity" • What has really caused your weight gain and is obstructing your weight loss • How to gain control of your environment and behavior • Customized diet and exercise solutions • Alternative methods and Dr. O's "secret weapon"
Perhaps most importantly, you will learn how to maintain results after weight loss for a life free of calorie counting, crash dieting, and the physical and emotional effects of obesity.
