TuDiabetes Live Interview with Dr. Osama Hamdy, Co-Author of The Diabetes Breakthrough

Osama Hamdy, MD, PhD, an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, is the founder and medical director of the obesity clinical program at the Joslin Diabetes Center. He is the creator of the Joslin Why WAIT™ program, the world’s first clinical program designed to help patients with diabetes lose weight and reverse the progressive course of their disease. Dr. Hamdy is the co-author, with Sheri Colberg, of The Diabetes Breakthrough, a 12 week weight loss program modeled after Why WAIT.

The Diabetes Breakthrough (Harlequin, 2014) unlocks the formula for halting the progression of type 2 diabetes and erasing its damage. Dr. Hamdy offers a clinically proven, 12 week diet and fitness plan modeled after his Why WAIT™ program at Joslin Diabetes Center. Readers learn to create balanced, glucose-friendly meals using foods they love, which diabetes medications cause weight gain, how to combine strength and cardio training to drop pounds but not muscle, and strategies for breaking habits and reversing the negative thinking that stymies progress. The Diabetes Breakthrough makes it possible for everyone with diabetes to achieve the results Joslin patients have enjoyed:

A 50 to 60 percent reduction in medications
An average weight loss of 25 pounds in 12 weeks
A 50 percent success rate at keeping weight off for four years
A 21 percent drop in numbers taking insulin
