If you are like most people, you have tried unsuccessfully to lose unwanted pounds. Maybe you lost weight at first, only to gain it back and then some. Contrary to what most doctors and many other healthcare providers profess, the truth about losing weight has as much to do with hormones, lifestyle choices, relationships and a multitude of other factors as reducing calories and exercising.
The human body is comprised of complex systems that are wrought with opportunities for malfunctioning given any number of genetic, environmental and dietary influences. In order to achieve and maintain optimal weight, our systems must be in balance and our hormones must be functioning properly. If it were as simple as counting calories and running on the treadmill, we would all be thin.
The mission of The Truth About Thin is to empower people who want to lose weight to make healthy and educated weight loss decisions, and to free people once and for all from the emotionally devastating yo-yo diet lifestyle.
