MONTEREY, Calif. — It’s the season of dieting, but before you start, be sure the approach you’re choosing makes sense.

Dr. Mark Vierra will talk about “Truth in advertising: Why your diet doesn’t work,” during a free lecture and question-and-answer session from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, January 21 at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.

Vierra will talk about the science behind weight control and weight loss, assess what’s right and what’s wrong with some of today’s common diets, and offer approaches that are sound.

The talk is in the main conference rooms at Community Hospital, 23625 Holman Highway, Monterey.  For more information, please call 625-4505.
