What Defines Good Health

Recently, Dr. Stephanie A. EricsonInternal Medicine physician with ARC Healthiness, discussed weight loss programs on this ARC Healthcare Minute podcast. She suggests that there are three criteria that patients should consider when selecting a weight loss program.

These criteria are the physical aspects, the mental aspects, and the social. Dr. Ericson says, “One, the program teaches you to accept your size, while teaching you about physical activities that can improve your health. Two, the program addresses long-term behavior change. Three, the program addresses why and how much you eat in social settings around others.”
