Episode Summary

Many people think that when we reach a certain age—say, our 40’s or 50’s, it becomes nigh impossible to lose weight and keep it off. But guess what? That’s not the truth. Weight loss and fat loss don’t have an age limit. Anyone can do it.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we have someone who’s done just that: Dian Griesel. Dian has a Ph. D. in Nutrition, is a best-selling author, perception analyst, and model in her 60’s. She talks about how losing weight, getting healthy, feeling good, and looking great aren’t confined to a certain age group.
