Now the background story
Before I was successful at empowering women to manage their mindset and optimize health, I was just another doctor touting the “eat less, exercise more” prescription. I advised patients to count their calories. Choose low fat foods. Just don’t eat so much. The only problem was - it wasn’t working. So like many of my colleagues, I thought “well, these patients just aren’t compliant. They’re not motivated enough.” Man, was I wrong.
The medical field is waking up to understand that weight and appetite regulation are far more complex than we used to think. New understanding of the physiology and psychology has revolutionized our approach to treating obesity and metabolic diseases. It’s not a willpower issue, it’s how our brain interacts with our food environment to drive hunger and desire, it's hormones and neurotransmitters, it's negative self-talk produced by a diet industry that keeps saying "just try harder!" All of this has kept women stuck in the never-ending cycle of yo-yo dieting, “falling off the wagon” and frustration.
As a Physician and Life Coach, my practice transformed when I started teaching clients to heal their relationship with food and their bodies, make empowered choices leading to healthy habits, and harness the power of mindset. When a healthy mindset leading to healthy habits is combined with appropriate medical care, sustainable, empowered weight loss is possible.
