Today we discuss obesity, weight loss without dieting, and seeing beyond the scale.

The adult obesity rate in the U.S. is at or above 35% in seven different states, and at least 30% in 29 states. Are we digging our graves with our mouths? What’s happening here?

If you're serious about improving your health, having great energy, and maybe shedding some weight, then it's really important to have the right information so that you can make sure you do so in a way that's best for you long term.

He joins me today to talk about the significance of measuring our BFI (Body Fact Index) versus the standard BMI (Body Mass Index).

Robert also shares information about how we can lose the "right kind" of weight, cook healthy, fat burning meals that speed up our metabolism, and change the path of childhood obesity in America.
