Good health is attainable for everyone and is only limited by negligence or a lack of knowledge

In the United States, more than 1 in 3 adults are considered to be obese, according to the National Institutes of Health. This alarming number is evidence of the ongoing weight problems and related diseases faced by millions of people, including Type 2 diabetes and cancers.

Dr. Philip Caravella has practiced medicine for more than 40 years and understands the need for conversations not only about patients’ physical health, but also the impacts on the insurance industry, the healthcare system, and today’s youth.

Based on his extensive background in practicing medicine, research and education, his new book “Weight No Longer: The Prescription of Amazing Fitness & Living,” provides readers with easy-to-follow principles that can help prevent and resolve serious health problems.

“While previous takes on these issues focus solely on diets, fitness, and obesity, I feel they’ve failed to give people the most important tool for success – information,” Caravella said. “Good health is attainable for everyone and is only limited by negligence or a lack of knowledge. Education and motivation are the building blocks for success.”

Focused on both the currently impacted individuals and the development of healthy habits for children, Caravella strives to separate the medical facts from fiction in order to reverse the steady trend of obesity.
