Dr. Lana Staheli appeared again on "Chat With Women" this week on Seattle's KIXI 880 AM discussing the socially delicate topic of body weight. Dr. Lana writes, "We talk on 'Chat With Women' about a person's weight and how it affects your relationship, and it does affect it even if you are only 10-15 lbs. overweight. You should weigh the same as you weighed in high-school. Really.
Somewhere around 50 years-old, our caloric intake drops from around 2,000 for women to 1,500 calories a day, and from 2,500 calories for men down to 2,000. This is the main reason why the pounds seem to become surprisingly and effortlessly easier to pile on."
