Are you interested in losing weight for good?  Today, we dive into weight loss and the secrets to how to maintain it. In this episode, I talk with Sylvia Tara. Dr. Sylvia was driven to research fat, science, and lifestyle after she finally got "fed up" with eating less and exercising more than her slimmer friends throughout her life.

In her best-selling book, The Secret Life of Fat, she reveals the complex biology of fat, how it resists loss, and what to do to remove stubborn fat. Readers will learn that fat, surprisingly, uses many tricks to stay on us, and only if you understand those tricks can you beat fat at its own game. We discuss fat loss, and how to stop the weight loss game. She also shared the most surprising thing she found about fat, and why some people have a harder time losing weight.
