RTR (the website) was created to further support my book: Refuse to Regain:12 Tough Rules to Maintain the Body You've Earned. The book sums up what I've learned so far in over 25 years of practice as an obesity specialist including my strong advocacy for a variant of Primal Diet for weight loss and maintenance. I sincerely hope you'll read and enjoy
Whether you are losing weight, maintaining a weight loss, contemplating a change in diet, or struggling with the frustrations of regain, I think you will find something that makes you think within these pages. Please browse through the archives (see them listed in the sidebar on the left) to see articles of interest posted from 2008 to the present. For my favorite posts and reader favorites, check out "BEST OF REFUSE TO REGAIN" in the category list.
Remember that weight loss is just one part of reinventing your life. Always challenge yourself in other ways while trying to get healthier. The photo above comes from my latest personal challenge: performing as a non-dancer in a charity ballroom event.
