Traps of diet gimmicks -- Mental Health Minute

Losing weight can be easy while dieting but keeping it off can be another story, according to a Sturgeon Bay Psychologist.  Reportedly two-thirds of all adults are considered obese in the United States.  Sturgeon Bay Psychologist Dr. Dennis White says researchers from UCLA examined 31 weight-loss studies and found that long-term dieting does not keep the pounds off.  He says gimmicks are not a good solution since many times the lost weight comes back.  Sustainable changes in your lifestyle are needed.



Dr. White adds that people are often driven to eat.  By changing your approach to foods and eliminating bad eating habits you can improve your physical and mental wellbeing.  You can listen to Dr. Dennis White's entire Mental Health Minute with this story online.
