Obesity is a multifactorial disorder with genetics, environment, development, and behavior all playing a role, but a lot of people underemphasize genetics. We know that weight is more inheritable than height.

Dr. Tanzi has published over 500 research papers and has received the highest awards in his field, including the Metropolitan Life Foundation Award, Potamkin Prize, Ronald Reagan Award, Silver Innovator Award, and the Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award, the top national award for invention and innovation. Dr. Tanzi was named to TIME Magazine’s list of TIME100 Most Influential People in the World.

The Lifeforce approach is, among companies like this that I've looked at, the most medically sound. The diagnostic looks at things like Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH), testosterone. A lot of people don't look at this, and it's very important because you can have a memory problem due to a thyroid problem and not even know it.
