Monday, January 23, 2012, 6:00 p.m. As the last of the Christmas candy is being rapidly consumed in anticipation of the looming New Year’s diet resolutions, it’s time to get serious about health and weight loss. DR. JOHN DE BEIXEDON will discuss the causes of the obesity epidemic and the consequent rise in diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia as well as the various modalities available to treat obesity and reduce the associated medical risk factors. John de Beixedon, M.D. is a board-certified internal medicine physician who has been in private practice in Pasadena since 1999. He received a B.S. in Zoology from Duke University in 1984, was granted his M.D. degree from St. George's University School of Medicine in 1988. He completed his Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Virginia and has specialized in diabetes and more recently, bariatrics. Since 2008, Dr. de Beixedon has served as a medical adviser for ABC News and is also an accomplished magician and a member of the Magic Castle in Hollywood. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that at any given time two-thirds of all American adults are on a diet to either lose weight or prevent weight gain. Yet only 5 percent of these dieters will be successful at keeping the weight that they lost off.
