Dr. Wyatt has spent much of her research career following more than 10,000 “successful losers” in the National Weight Control Registry to investigate what makes people successful during their weight loss journey. She also has investigated the reasons why Colorado is the leanest state in the nation and is using her learnings and experiences to help Alabama become a healthier state. Her passion for and expertise in helping obese individuals successfully transform their bodies, minds, and lifestyles has made her a popular clinician, speaker, and obesity educator. Her reputation as an expert in weight loss led to her becoming the medical director for two seasons of the ABC-TV show Extreme Weight Loss and has made her a sought-after speaker and interviewee for conferences and media outlets including CNN, NBC, CBS, Bloomberg, and more. She shares much of what she has learned in her book State of Slim, co-authored by James O. Hill, PhD. Her next book the Infinity Lifetsyle is due out in 2023.
