Your Best Weight: Understanding why diets fail (and how you can succeed)

  • Victoria Village Library 184 Sloane Avenue North York, ON, M4A 2C4 Canada (map)

Trying to lose weight can be one of the most confusing and frustrating experiences. Confusing because there are so many conflicting messages and strategies about weight loss. And frustrating because most of these leave us disappointed and our weight yo-yoing. Does it have to be this way? Why do so many diets fail? Is it possible to actually lose weight and keep it off?

This presentation challenges common misconceptions about obesity and weight loss that lay at the foundation of so many diet failures. You will learn about the simple yet powerful concept of best weight and principles based on the latest obesity research that lead to sensible and sustainable weight loss.

This presentation is part of Let Lifestyle Be Your Medicine, a 6-part series on the power of lifestyle medicine hosted by Pathways to Wholeness Lifestyle Medicine Centre and the Mount. Gilead Seventh-day Adventist Church.
