Connecting Malnutrition and Obesity

"We also often talk to patients that say, 'I know I've lost weight rapidly. It isn't a good thing, but I don't want to regain the weight, I'm happy that I've lost weight.' And so our message back to them is we won't help you gain back weight as far as fat, but we need to increase that muscle mass in order to have good health." - Wendy Phillips, RD
