  • Discussion of Food Addictions and How to Treat Them
  • The Role of Exercise as both a Help and Hindrance to weight loss

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Evidenced-Based Weight Loss Training?

By looking at the medical literature, we help you teach patients how to lose weight using only what is known to be true in the medical literature, and not using fad supplements and gimmicks commonly advertised directly to patients.

What are 3 weight management strategies?

Evidence shows that the three best weight management strategies are reduction in manufactured processed foods, daily physical activity, and consistent sleep and stress reduction.  Diet pills and meal replacement shakes are NOT on this list.

What type of doctor should I see for weight loss?

You should choose a board-certified physician who does not peddle “quick fix” supplements and prescriptions to guarantee weight loss, but focuses on stress reduction, lifestyle improvements, and a whole food menu that you can follow for life.

What can doctors prescribe for weight loss?

The best prescription is stress reduction, a natural food menu, and rehabilitation of the GI tract that has been compromised due to processed foods.  No prescription weight loss pill, shake, or over the counter supplement has proven to cause permanent weight loss.

Why choose Practical CME Evidence -based Weight Loss Training CME Courses?

Since 2008, PracticalCME’s weight loss training focuses on the strategies that work including pairing weight loss with BHRT testing, and GI/Neurotransmitter testing.  The training also focuses on eliminating food addictions to prevent weight re-gain.
