Today’s episode focuses on “transformational” weight loss and the important, yet different, roles of diet and exercise in weight management.
Today my guest is James O. Hill, Ph.D., the founding Executive Director of the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. One of America’s foremost experts in weight management, he has spent over 25 years researching the causes of weight gain, adiposity, and obesity and how to prevent or treat these problems. He leads over 100 researchers studying obesity, has published over 500 scientific articles and lectures widely about weight management. He is a key developer of the America on the Move program and is well known as a co-founder of the National Weight Control Registry, which follows over 6000 people who have lost weight and kept it off permanently.
Dr. Hill’s work strives to give people, in simple terms, the basics of weight management and show how you can make simple changes in your lifestyle that dramatically change your body weight.
