INTRO TO EPISODE:

Hello, Health Investor!

Welcome back to another episode of The Health Investment Podcast!

If you’re interested in losing weight or maintaining your current weight, this episode is for YOU.

My guest, Dr. Richa Mittal, is the Founder and Medical Director of Radiant Health Weight Loss and Wellness in Frisco, Texas.  As an Internist and Diplomate of the Board of Obesity Medicine, she provides weight management and preventive health services. 

Dr. Mittal’s unique program uses an integrative approach that treats the whole person- combining specialized medical care with customized nutritional guidance, mindset and health coaching. She is passionate about addressing her patients’ needs holistically, by treating the medical, social, emotional and lifestyle aspects of their lives in order to help her patients achieve life-long health.

I’ve been a fan of Dr. Mittal for quite some time, so I had about 1,000 questions for her. As you’ll see, she answers all of them graciously and thoroughly—I learned so, SO much and know you will too!

As you listen and learn, do me a favor: Take a selfie, post it to social media, and tag me @thehealthinvestment! I love seeing photos of you IN ACTION as you soak up the latest episode!!
