11/15: Healthy Weight: Setting Yourself Up for Success - Dr. Ray Raman Nanda, MD
Successful weight loss is more than just cutting calories. Your current weight, give or take a few pounds, is your current set point, and it is determined by many factors, including genetics and how you respond to the environment, the kinds of food you eat, how much you eat, how active you are and how you cope with stress. Many people are at their healthiest set point at about age 18, after they stop growing and developing. But most experience a slow, steady weight gain throughout their lives, causing the body to believe its set point is higher than it really should be. Its not too late, discover how healthy lifestyle choices, exercise, and a positive attitude can help you lose weight and keep it off for good.
