The Author

Author Joseph Proietto (MBBS, PhD, FRACP) has treated patients for more than twenty years and has undertaken both laboratory and clinical research on obesity. He is the senior author in two landmark papers. The first, published in 2011 in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, discovered the biological reason why it is so difficult to maintain weight loss long term. The second, published in 2014 in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology found that it is easier to lose weight rapidly and that rapid weight loss does not lead to more rapid weight regain.
