BREAKTHROUGH! NO WONDER PEOPLE STRUGGLE TO LOSE WEIGHT, MAYBE THEY'RE NOT EATING ENOUGH! IN 14 SHORT MINUTES, DR. TAKETA-WONG REVEALS FIVE COMMON WEIGHT LOSS MISTAKES AND HOW TO AVOID MAKING THEM.
An estimated 45 million Americans go on a diet each year and spend $33 billion on weight loss products. However many people unknowingly make common mistakes that can sabotage their attempts at weight loss.
These mistakes include eye openers like: over exercising, not checking underlying medical conditions (like hormone levels), not eating enough calories, negative self-talk, and expecting results too soon. Dr. Taketa-Wong reviews these common mistakes plus several more and explains what’s worked to solve them.
As a naturopathic physician, Dr. Taketa-Wong attended medical school, just like medical doctors. The difference is the concentration on nutrition and how it affects every area of our well being. Conventional medical schools offer about 25 hours of nutrition courses, if they have them at all. Dr. Taketa-Wong's medical training included 155 hours of nutrition courses.
The value to patients cannot be overstated. By understanding how the body works, losing weight becomes a process that actually empowers people with their health.
