Why are so many individuals overweight and obese?

According to Dr. Eddie Fatakhov, the following factors all play a role:

  • Society we live in
  • Foods we eat
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Menopause
But, Dr. Fatakhov also believes that one of the number-one reasons for weight gain involves the use of certain everyday medications (OTC included).

Along with "righting" the ship with patients' medication regimens, Dr. Fatakhov implements simple, logical techniques to help them lose weight -- as easy as recognizing true hunger cues vs. dehydration. 

Listen as Dr. Fatakhov joins Dr. Bond to explain the role of medications in weight gain, as well as easy tips for getting your weight in check. He also cautions the pitfalls of eating too many vegetables and its relation to diabetes.
