Encore Episode: Dieting? You're Wasting Your Time

Pills, programs, detoxes and diets... with so many options available for weight loss, why are so many of us still overweight?

Simply put, diets don't work.

Sustainable outcomes only come with concerted changes in behavior. 

As fitness expert Jay Cardiello puts it, "food is just a habit, not the root cause." You have to identify your "why" factor. What brought you to the point of packing on the pounds?

If you look for a quick fix, you're only putting a band-aid on the problem.

Of course, eating well needs to be part of that behavior change, as does getting quality sleep (and enough of it), proper exercise, and consistent hydration.

Listen in as Cardiello joins Dr. Friedman to explain why diets don't work, as well as effective ways you can lose the weight and finally get healthy.
