Partners Executive Director Dr. David Weed presented another session in the series on "How to Lose Weight Without Going Hungry" as part of  the Greater Fall River Fitness Challenge. The series is offered to Challenge participants who are attempting to lose weight in the Challenge through exercise, though research is clear that exercise is not a good for long-term weight loss. Low carbohydrate, high fat diets, on the other hand, have repeatedly been  demonstrated to lead to significant weight loss, especially when compared to low-fat, calorie-restricted approaches. In this session, Dr. Weed talks  about what to eat every day on a low-carb, high-fat diet. Click here for a 59-minute video of the presentation that includes a twelve-minute video on "Why your body makes you Fat AND hungry" and a short film from 1958 on "Want to Slim, Then Eat Fat".
