Event Types :
Join Laura Varich, MD, a certified lifestyle medicine physician, to learn research-backed tips for taking control of your health.

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.

About the Presenter:

Laura Varich, MD, is the founder of Fresh Physician (FreshPhysician.com), a website that grew out of a desire to turn the tide on the chronic diseases such as weight gain, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, and many others that have become rampant in our society today. Dr. Varich’s in-depth research within the medical literature revealed that there is hope for improved health for us all. Her life’s goal is to share the information that she discovered on how whole-food, plant-based eating is the way to turn around chronic disease, and also how simple and delicious this way of eating can be.
