Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach continue the topic of weight gain and obesity discussing two news articles. The first concerns a study from Australia that found after dieting the homones that control appetite were still out of balance up to year after the diet was started. Researchers believe this is why nearly 80% of people who diet regain some if not all of the lost weight. The second article contained an interview with the CEO of "Weight Watchers International". In that interview he asserts that he lost 38 pounds and kept it off by changing his habits. Also contending that regaining lost weight is because of falling back into bad habits not a lack of will power.
