“Eat Less, Move More” – We Know it’s Not that Simple: Finding Your Evidence-based Approach

You’ve likely heard time and time again that “eating less and moving more” is the simple, common sense answer to weight-loss. If that’s all it took, why do so many people struggle to take off pounds and avoid regain? Behavior changes are an important tool in weight management, but they’re only the tip of the iceberg!

In this session, explore ALL the tools available to help you with weight control that are backed by evidence. Christopher D. Still, DO, Director of the Geisinger Center for Nutrition and Weight Management and the Obesity Research Institute, will walk you through the full continuum of science-based obesity care and weight management – including lifestyle modification, programs, prescription medicines, bariatric surgery and others. As you start to think about weight differently, you’ll see why leaning on the science is the best way to decide your personal approach!
