Mann Explains Why Your Diet Didn’t Work in “The Rational View” Podcast

Headshot of Dr. Traci Mann

In a recent episode of the podcast The Rational View, host Dr. Al Scott interviewed Traci Mann on the science of dieting. Mann, the director of the Health and Eating Lab, explained that despite the significant amount of energy and money people are willing to spend on diets, dieting is not effective for long-term weight loss and can lead to weight gain. Mann described, therefore, that folks would be far better off focusing on eating and exercising for health rather than for weight loss because the latter is counterproductive.
