Dr. Wallach starts the show discussing the problem of obesity in America. Despite the governments programs aimed at getting America to get thinner the problem is still here. Doc asserts this is because the government and doctors are wrong in believing that weight gain and obesity is a problem of excess. While in his opinion it is caused by mineral deficiencies not a lack of will power or low self esteem.
