Is the weight-loss advice and information we’ve been getting helpful or correct? No, says Dr. Sarah Hallberg, medical director of IU Health Arnett’s medical weight-loss program.
The evidence, she says, is found in both the scientific studies of the past few years as well as 35 years of increasing obesity and diabetes rates in the United States.
Hallberg presents a lecture titled “Changing Our Message: Obesity and the Failure of the Dietary Guidelines,” This was originally presented on Sunday, September 21, at IU Health Arnett Hospital in Lafayette, Indiana. The presentation was free and all available seats taken.
In these videos, Dr. Hallberg discusses the problems with the current dietary guidelines, including the lack of solid science behind the recommendations. She also discusses the basic science and recent research findings of low-carbohydrate diets.
