  • Overview

    Dr. Frank Sacks, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and professor of cardiovascular disease prevention in the nutrition department at Harvard's School of Public Health, gives us an update on the long-standing debate about weight loss. New evidence from Dr. Sacks' research tells us that the specifics of macronutrient consumption appear to matter less than general calorie reduction. Yet many folks who did lose weight during this trial gained it back after its conclusion. So what's next? Can we find ways to tailor calorie-reducing diets to the preferences of each patient, or is large-scale gastric surgery the next best option for reversing our obesity epidemic? Dr. Larry Kaskel hosts.
