We all know that it can be difficult to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. But it turns out that it is not our lack of exercise, or our lack of willpower that drives weight gain; rather, weight gain is in large part driven by cultural, environmental, and evolutionary influences. And while many elements conspire to cause weight gain, recent medical research tells us how factors such as calorie density, your microbiome, and the timing of your meals and snacks can be optimized to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
It is time to look past the fads and quick fixes and focus on the simple lifestyle changes that will best provide you with a healthy weight and improved overall health for life. Join Laura Varich, MD, a certified lifestyle medicine physician, to learn research-backed tips for taking control of your health. Get empowered while also sampling some recommended foods for healthy weight and learning how to easily incorporate them into your diet.
