#16 Practicing Medicine Exactly The Way I Want To With Dr. Catherine Toomer

Twenty years ago, Dr. Catherine Toomer, a Family Medicine physician had a 50% chance of living for five more years due to obesity complicated by heart failure. With young babies that she desperately wanted to see grow, she knew she had to do something, quickly. She turned to her medical education for information that turned everything around. She lost 60 pounds in under six months while still eating food she enjoyed and without exercise or weight loss medication. This was two decades ago and she has successfully kept the weight off since.
