Dr. Hensrud holds four academic degrees: a B.S., an M.D., and Master’s Degrees in public health and nutrition sciences. He is board certified in the fields of Internal Medicine, Nutrition, and Preventive Medicine, and is a fellow of both the American College of Physicians and The Obesity Society.

Dr. Hensrud has authored numerous scientific articles and book chapters and has contributed to lay education as editor of the books Mayo Clinic Healthy Weight for EveryBody, The New Mayo Clinic Cookbook, The Mayo Clinic Plan: 10 Essential Steps to a Better Body and Healthier Life, and the New York Times bestseller The Mayo Clinic Diet. He was coeditor of the medical text Clinical Preventive Medicine and wrote a monthly health column for Fortune magazine for several years.
