Millions of Americans struggle with their weight. In fact, more than 70% of the U.S. population is considered overweight or obese. The holiday season can be a particularly difficult time to control our weight, but for those whose health is in jeopardy, it is an important time to take control.  The top three causes of death in America are cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes, and being overweight is a major risk factor for all of them.

Weight gain may be influenced by many factors, including genetics, lifestyle, emotions, mental health and physical limitations. On December 7, weight management expert Dr. Matthew Pittman will be available for interview. He will offer your listeners important facts about the dangers of obesity, the common pitfalls people encounter when trying to lose weight and how to successfully achieve and maintain weight loss goals.

In this segment, he will expand on the following tips:

  • The keys to long-term success vs. short-term weight loss
  • Holiday eating modification tips (ie not only changing what you eat, but how you cook)
  • When to consider medical or surgical options
