Encore Episode: Diets that Do More than Drop Weight
Sometimes the term "diet" gets a bad rap, especially when in the company of another word: fad.

Eating healthy shouldn't just be about weight (losing or maintaining). It should be about striving for an overall healthy lifestyle. 

Dr. Felicia Stoler advises three diet approaches the not only help you lose weight, but also provide significant health benefits.

MIND: combination of DASH and Mediterranean diets
Fasting Mimicking: developed by Dr. Valter Longo, a “fasting with food” concept
Flexitarian: encourages mostly plant-based eating with small amounts of animal protein

Listen as Dr. Stoler joins Dr. Bond to discuss these three diet plans and all of their many benefits -- not just for your waistline, but for your overall health and wellness.
