Experts from Ohio’s largest health system share helpful information about healthy weight, losing weight, exercise, fad diets and more

Mercy Health has devoted the second of its monthly Mercy Health: Helping You Be Well videos to weight management.

Nearly everyone is on some kind of diet. Losing weight isn’t easy. And keeping it off can be even harder. That’s why Mercy Health (formerly Catholic Health Partners) – a Catholic healthcare ministry serving Ohio and Kentucky – has devoted the second of its monthly Mercy Health: Helping You Be Well videos to weight management.

In a concise video on Mercy Health’s YouTube channel, Drs. Mohamed I. Dahman of Mercy Health Physicians in Cincinnati and Stephanie Dunkle-Blatter of St. Rita’s Weight Management in Lima answer questions such as: How do I know if I’m at an unhealthy weight? What is the healthiest way to lose weight? What kind of foods should I eat? How much should I exercise? Are there any fad diets that could work for me?

An infographic with weight management tips is available. And Mercy Health is sharing tips throughout the month on its social media channels.

Mercy Health: Helping You Be Well, which spotlights key health issues and tips for healthy living, debuted in December. The videos feature Mercy Health physician experts who are committed to making lives better – mind, body and spirit.
