Join us for a conversation with Dr. David Prologo, a dual board-certified interventional radiologist and obesity medicine specialist. He shares the science behind why we tend to fail at diets and the importance of finding your “catching point” to achieve successful weight loss. His new book, The Catching Point Transformation: A 12-Week Weight Loss Strategy Based in Reality, comes from more than 2 decades of work in obesity medicine. Plus, his analogies make a complex health topic fun and easy to understand!
Dr. David Prologo is a dual board-certified interventional radiologist and obesity medicine specialist. He has spent more than 20 years specifically analyzing the phenomenon of diet attrition – why do diets always fail? More importantly, when they do fail, why do we blame the patients for that failure? That journey led Dr. Prologo to perform first in human advanced interventional procedures to manage obesity, diabetes, and other medical conditions. It further led to the identification of the catching point – a clear pivot point beyond which calorie restriction and exercise are easier for patients. He has been recognized nationally and internationally for his work, including features on The Today Show, in the Washington Post, on Capitol Hill, in numerous peer-reviewed journal publications, countless web-based invited expert articles, and much more.
