Why is it So Hard to Lose Weight and Keep it off?

The journey with weight can feel like an uphill battle. As if weight-loss alone wasn’t hard enough… keeping it off just adds to the struggle! You might be wondering, “Why can’t I just shed the weight and be done with it? I’m exhausted!”

Navigating weight management is a life-long journey, no matter what direction the scale is going in. So knowing this, it would be helpful to uncover the “WHY” that we all want to know! This insightful session will feature Kevin Hall, PhD, an expert research scientist from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), as he dives into the physiological aspects of our bodies that make weight-loss and weight maintenance so challenging. But, most importantly, he will provide you with practical tools to make long-lasting lifestyle changes that promote overall health and benefit your weight!
