Michigan Answers: Questions About Weight Loss

Nearly half of all U.S. adults have tried to lose weight in the last 12 months. Obesity is often described as an epidemic. A health care crisis even. In this episode, endocrinologist Amy Rothberg, M.D.  joins us to talk about weight loss and the most commonly searched questions about weight management.

  • What foods help you lose weight the fastest?
  • Is there a danger to losing weight too fast?
  • Does intermittent fasting work?

Fad diets and promises of quick weight loss get a lot of attention in the media, but Dr. Rothberg helps us get into the science and we really know about weight loss.
