The Latest on Weight Management

While we all know that being overweight has a negative impact on our health, more and more of us struggle to reach and maintain a healthy weight for our body’s frame.  It’s not always a simple matter of eating less and being more active.  Often, obesity can be attributed to a hormonal abnormality that leads to storing energy as fat.
