The Hunter-Farmer Healthy Weight Solution with Mark Liponis, MD Previous Broadcasts

KQED Plus: Sat, Jun 1, 2013 -- 5:30 PM

Public television viewers have proven to have an insatiable appetite for diet programs. Each of those programs proposes one specific kind of diet for all viewers. But what if that's the wrong approach? What can we do to help people realize that some of their experiences and intuitions about diet are valid, while some accepted "dogma" is just myth?
So we don't really need another diet. We need a solution. And just like we understand that there's no "one size fits all" prescription for chronic pain, the challenges of menopause, or keeping our brains healthy, research is showing that the right diet is not just one diet, but it's the right diet for the right person - and there are different kinds of people when it comes to eating.
The Hunter-Farmer Healthy Weight Solution is what viewers have been waiting for. Dr. Mark Liponis has created a groundbreaking approach to diet by identifying two metabolic "styles"- and each style requires a different approach to healthy and sustained weight loss. Viewers will learn whether they are a Hunter or a Farmer. Historically, Hunters and Farmers had two entirely different eating patterns: Hunters tended to feast; Farmers tended to graze. The program is based on his book The Hunter/Farmer Diet Solution and it has been embraced by readers and featured on the Dr. Oz show.
Dr. Liponis is a leading expert in preventive and integrative medicine, author, and Chief Corporate Medical Director of Canyon Ranch, the renowned collection of wellness retreats across the US. Dr. Liponis' research, in the US and abroad, has uncovered the facts that will guide viewers to their identify as either "Hunter" or "Farmer" and help them tailor their eating habits and food choices in a way that makes sense, as never before.
