Expert Weight Loss Advice From Dr. Sass

In our expert tips section, we like to find experts who can give you real advice you can use. It seems like there is always someone around you who is trying to lose weight unsuccessfully. We turned to our resident expert, Dr. Sass, to get tips on the best ways to lose weight.

When it comes to diet and weight loss, is it best to count calories, fat or carbs?
I recommend counting calories first and then fats. Remember, simple carbs (processed foods, sugar, etc.) are much worse than certain fats like olive oil.

What is the newest surgery for weight loss?
Weight loss surgery should only be reserved for people that are morbidly obese and have tried other diets. Gastric Balloon Surgery is the procedure that involves inserting a balloon into the stomach to reduce the amount of food eaten.
