    Excellent presentation. Dr. Josephson answers the questions all my female clients over 40 are asking. The presentation is packed with important facts about fat loss and fat gain in women. I will watch this presentation again to solidify my knowledge. He delivers the information in a clearly understandable and entertaining way. Great job, and thank you!
