Today on Your Call: Why are Americans still gaining weight?

May 16, 2012

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Dr. John McDougall about his new book, "The Starch Solution." According to Center for Disease Control, more than one-third of U.S. adults and approximately 12.5 million of children and adolescents are obese.  We've heard about proper nutrition, so why don't we practice it? Dr. McDougal says eat your carbs--starch is the solution to the obesity crisis plaguing this nation. Can starch help heal the health crisis? Join us live at 10 or send an email to It's Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
