One of the most common questions Dr. Ali Ghahary gets asked as a family physician is “How do I lose weight?” About two-thirds of North Americans are considered to be overweight, and about one third are considered to be obese. Do you fall into this category? There are tremendous health risks to being if you do.

Many people try to control their food intake or count calories, but Dr. Ali Ghahary recommends first learn what foods you should eat, and which foods you should avoid at all costs. As a second phase, begin reducing food consumption, and as a third phase consider something called intermittent fasting.
