  • Society we live in
  • Foods we eat
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Menopause

But, Dr. Fatakhov also believes that one of the number-one reasons for weight gain involves the use of certain everyday medications (OTC included).

Along with “righting” the ship with patients’ medication regimens, Dr. Fatakhov implements simple, logical techniques to help them lose weight — as easy as recognizing true hunger cues vs. dehydration.
