The Most Reliable Way to Lose Weight with Dr Tommy Wood

Aug. 31, 2017

Solving a problem requires understanding what caused it, and rarely is it good enough to move straight to remediation. The same applies to weight (fat) loss, and in this podcast, Dr Tommy Wood, MD, PhD and me discuss the underlying causes of over fatness and draw on three specific examples that represent common patterns we’ve seen in the 1,000 athletes we’ve worked with over the past three or four years.
