Headlines have been ablaze with a supposed miracle treatment for weight control, the use of injection semaglutides like Ozempic, Wegovy, and Mounjaro--or its newer version, Zepbound. This frenzy sparks an important conversation on the state of dieting, for this may be the first time in the history of medicine that millions cannot wait to inject themselves It is a rush so great it even overcomes one of the most universal of fears, trypanophobia, fear of needles.

The reason so many have had to summon up their courage to depend on needles is the sense of desperation from repeated failures at dieting. You will see some of the most brilliant people in our society when you look at the millions of “diet failures.” Many of these individuals do not lack willpower or nutritional knowledge. How has the dietetic model failed? It is based on false assumptions about human behavior and wishful thinking, rather than hard science and the simple observation of human behavior.

We will cover in this presentation principles of dieting and weight loss that cut across all diet programs including those that include the route of injections, the missing fundamentals in diet programs, the tips and insider secrets from the 20,000 patients that my colleagues and I have worked with over the decades, and the powerful concepts of the emergent field of Behavioral Nutrition.

Audience take away notes:

  • The principles of behavioral nutrition carry over not only in eating, diets, weight control but also in life.
  • Individuals will be able to understand their eating print which involves their food history, why and how their body responds to their own biology, environment, advertising, and other external forces that affect weight gain and ultimately obesity.
  • The audience will also learn clever, insider tips and secrets that the winners at weight control, those that lose the weight and keep it off for good, have incorporated for their success.
  • The audience will also learn one of the greatest principles, and necessary understanding in weight loss, something greater than willpower.
  • The principles incorporating psychology, advertising, behavioral nutrition, forms a new model that I have developed that doctors, nutritionists, professors, and dieters will be able to use in their practice and help many.
