To defeat fat, you have to know fat. And fat is truly misunderstood. The truth is, fat isn’t all bad. In fact, it’s actually an endocrine organ that is critical to our health.

So Lori and I had to find someone who could get to the bottom of this mystery and Dr. Sylvia Tara fit the bill!

After an extended battle with weight, Dr. Tara became fascinated with its resiliency and embarked on a mission to better understand it. Dr. Tara is a biochemist and wrote the book The Secret Life of Fat, the culmination of years of research and interviews with physicians, patients and leading scientists. The Secret Life of Fat will forever change how you think about this misunderstood organ.

Dr. Tara joins the show to bring cutting-edge research with historical perspectives to reveal fat’s true identity. Armed with this knowledge, we become able to lose the bad fat that is so detrimental to our health while keeping just enough to stay healthy.
