Description

Is weight loss really just a matter of willpower? What if your body does not respond the way you expected it to – despite trying everything everyone suggested? Today, let us delve into the topic of seeing obesity as a disease that needs to be treated, not just with diet and exercise, but sometimes even with real medications. 



Dr. Alexandra Sowa joins me to discuss this very important topic. She is also a dual board-certified physician of Internal Medicine and Obesity Medicine, specializing in metabolic health, and is a clinical instructor of Medicine at NYU Langone.
