NPR's Tavis Smiley talks with husband-and-wife weight-loss gurus Dr. Otelio Randall — a cardiologist and founder of The Obesity Project at Howard University Hospital in Washington D.C. — and Donna Randall, a nutrition expert. The Randalls' new book, Menu for Life: African Americans Get Healthy, Eat Well, Lose Weight and Live Beautifully, explores the reasons for obesity within the African-American community, and how to halt the epidemic.
