A leading Canadian expert on obesity and weight management will bring his show to a Winnipeg audience next week.
Dr. Arya Sharma says there are many misconceptions and myths about obesity and weight loss, adding one in three Canadians struggle with excess weight.
The Stop Being a Yo-Yo: A Light-hearted Look at the Ups and Downs of Weight Loss event will be at Prairie Theatre Exchange on Wednesday, September 24.
“The idea that we can simply tell people to eat less and move more is as effective as telling people with depression to cheer up,” said the Edmonton-based Sharma.
His goal is to change people’s attitudes about obesity, presenting an evidence-based truth about the challenges of effectively losing weight and keeping it off.
Tickets are available online or at the door for $12 (cash only). All proceeds will go to support the Canadian Obesity Network.
