This week’s question addresses artificial sweeteners. There are many different types and many are marketed as healthy alternatives to conventional artificial sweeteners. Are they really better choices?
Dr. Matthew Weiner is an author and bariatric surgeon who specializes in the treatment of obesity. His practice, Tucson Bariatric, is located in Arizona, where he offers both surgical and non-surgical programs.
In his first book, A Pound of Cure, Dr. Weiner debunks the traditional understanding of calorie balance driving weight loss and offers a non-surgical solution to those suffering with obesity through nutritional stability.
His second book, How Weight Loss Surgery Really Works: And How to Make it Work for You, is now available on Amazon in paperback and kindle. In this book, Dr. Weiner describes how the hormonal changes that alter your brain, fat stores and hunger signals are the most important component of weight loss surgery, rather than the portion control effects that have been emphasized in the past.
On his website, www.poundofcureweightloss.com, he offers more than 150 videos on a wide array of nutritional and bariatric topics. Lesson plans range from, “Preparing for Weight Loss Surgery” to “The Metabolic Reset Diet” including recipes and meal plans.
Dr. Weiner is licensed to practice in both Arizona and Michigan and even offers Skype appointments. For more information call his office at (520) 319-6000 or check out his many resources below. For more videos and Facebook Live events, subscribe to his YouTube channel.
