MONTEREY, Calif. — “Drop 20 pounds in 10 days with the cabbage diet. Or the grapefruit diet. Or the all-meat diet…”
Do any of these diets really work? Michelle Barth, registered dietitian at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, and Dr. Mark Vierra, general surgeon, separate truth from myth and talk about what really works when it comes to successful weight loss in a free talk on Thursday, January 24.
The event is from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the Peninsula Wellness Center conference room, 2920 2nd Avenue, Marina (Highway 1 at Imjin Parkway). Registration is required by calling (888) 452-4667.

Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, established in 1934, has grown and evolved in direct response to the changing healthcare needs of the people it serves. It is a nonprofit healthcare provider with 205 staffed acute-care hospital beds and 28 skilled-nursing beds, delivering a continuum of care from birth to end of life, and every stage in between. It serves the Monterey Peninsula and surrounding communities through locations including the main hospital, outpatient facilities, satellite laboratories, a mental health clinic, a short-term skilled nursing facility, Hospice of the Central Coast, and business offices.
