 OAC Personally Invites You to Join Us for Our Inaugural Your Weight Matters National Convention


The OAC has officially released our Inaugural Convention Personal Invitation video! We are so excited to debut this video because it really gives viewers an inside look at what they can expect from this ground-breaking educational Convention.

With this being the Inaugural Your Weight Matters National Convention, we thought it was important to give you a complete understanding of the focus, purpose and vision for the meeting. We have designed this Convention to be unlike any other educational convention that is out there right now. Our goal is to provide solid, comprehensive and unbiased education for individuals at all stages in their journey with weight.

Besides a personal look into the Inaugural Your Weight Matters National Convention, this video also includes a personal invitation from OAC President/CEO Joe Nadglowski, inviting YOU to join us in Dallas, October 25-28, 2012 for this historical OAC event!

You can view the Inaugural Convention Personal Invitation video now by clicking here.>>>

We encourage you to share this video with friends, family, colleagues and patients, as there will be something for everyone at the Inaugural Your Weight Matters National Convention! The video is also hosted on the OAC's YouTube account, ObesityAction where individuals can provide comments on the video. We encourage you to share feedback with us regarding the video by commenting on the video on our YouTube channel.


  • Eating protein is important for those trying to lose weight because they need to preserve their lean muscle through the weight-loss phase, however, protein’s main purpose is to build and repair tissue, not to provide fuel or energy.

  • Economists have determined that if the price of sugary drinks goes up 10 percent, consumption will go down by about 10-12 percent. This would reduce the number of calories from sugary beverages people drink each day, and may help with weight-loss.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in fatty fish, are thought to have many health benefits, such as: reducing inflammation throughout the body, decreasing triglycerides, lowering blood pressure, reducing blood clotting, reducing risks of dementia and boosting immunity.
  • A recent study by Scneider-Friedrich, et. al. in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism showed waist-to-height ratio (WHtR) to be the best predictor of cardiovascular risk and mortality.

  • Sugary drinks are the single biggest source of “added” sugars in our diet today, that is, sugars that do not occur naturally in foods.
