Dr. Armando Gonzalez (AKA,Dr. Mondo), talks about his personal weight loss journey, his struggles and how he managed to succeed against all odds. He also explains the psychological aspects of weight loss that are often taken for granted, and tackles several misconceptions about weight loss and dieting.
Dr. Mondo is on a mission to help people who have been overweight since childhood lose the weight and keep it off for good. He is the only therapist to have gained exclusive access to conduct academic research with former contestants of NBC’s The Biggest Loser. That research with the hit show launched Dr. Mondo’s career and allowed him to create a comprehensive academic theory of drastic weight loss explaining the 8 psychological, identity and relationship stages people go through during weight loss.
