While psychiatric medications can be essential for improving mental health, they often come with unwanted side effects, including weight gain. Historically, a lack of integration between psychiatrists and other healthcare providers has meant that the impact of these medications on weight has often been overlooked. Today, I’m excited to bring Dr. Ma…

Menopause and the years leading up to it - perimenopause, are periods of significant change in a woman’s body. Working as a physician, I’ve seen firsthand how these hormonal changes can affect women, especially those struggling with weight. Unfortunately, if you're in the obesity category and considering hormone replacement therapy (HRT), it’s easy…

As anyone who struggles with weight management knows, it takes a lot more than waking up one day and deciding “it’s time to get healthy”. Our health is shaped by the countless small decisions we make each and every day and when we don’t see instant results, it can feel hard. But one of the key things that keeps me going? My love for my future self.…

As humans, we thrive through connection. And when we embark on a journey to improve our metabolic health, I’m a strong believer that we need continual inspiration to guide us along the way and remind us that we’re all in this together. For me, a huge source of that inspiration has come from Angel Scheer, someone who I have followed for a long time …

When people start working on their health, one of the first things they usually want to know is: what is the best nutrition plan? But when it comes to the “best” nutrition plan for you, it really hinges on your own personal health goals. What are you actually trying to get out of the changes that you're making? For the purpose of today’s episode, w…

Most of us have been there when trying to lose weight… following a diet to the T, only to get discouraged when the scale doesn't budge. But the truth is, weight can’t tell us everything about our health and can even be detrimental to our own body image. I know if I had let the traditional scale determine my own success, I would have stopped years a…

Weight loss coach Jennifer Watts often felt defeated by traditional diet plans. Each attempt ended in what felt like failure, creating a cycle of frustration and self-doubt.

Do you feel drained and fed up with the constant effort it takes to prioritize your health?

Bariatric surgery can be a powerful tool for hitting the reset button on your metabolic health, but people often underestimate the mental and emotional components of weight loss surgery. Surgeons, dietitians, and therapists all agree that long-term success has less to do with what happens in the operating room and more to do with the mindset and be…

If you’ve been following me for some time, you’ll know I’m no stranger to discussing why your health isn't solely determined by the number on the scale. And while you might happily nod along with this approach, I know that many of us *still* can’t escape that nagging urge to weigh less. If you are someone who tends to fixate a bit too much on what …

Years ago, the standard approach to obesity in primary care was to “eat less and move more.” Now, we’ve come to learn that without intensive behavioral support, that approach is largely ineffective. What many people don’t know is that obesity medicine is actually a medical specialty on its own that focuses on the evaluation, treatment, and preventi…

There’s no denying that obesity among children is on the rise. But we also know what a sensitive subject weight can be–and one that many parents are reluctant to broach. Do you mention their tightening waistband and risk hurting their feelings? Or do you choose to stay quiet and risk causing even more damage in the long run by not addressing the is…

“I feel hungry all the time” or “I just can’t control my cravings!” It’s a complaint that nearly always crops up as people get further into their journeys working on their health: hunger and cravings. There’s no denying that this is a frustrating part of the journey. But it’s also not your fault. Eating a healthier diet isn’t just about willpower o…

Like it or hate it, we just can’t help comparing ourselves to others. Whether it be our looks, intelligence, success, or wealth, the comparison trap is real– but especially when it comes to our health. We know deep down that our bodies are all unique. Yet, that little voice inside nags us, making us believe we should be mirroring someone else's jou…

Setting new goals for ourselves is exciting. In the first few weeks, we’re motivated, we have a new way of looking at things, and it's a whole new Disney ride.

Like many medications, GLP 1 drugs come with side effects and one of the most common (and bothersome!) among them is constipation. Even if you're not taking anti-obesity medication, constipation remains a common problem for many, which is not only uncomfortable, but also detrimental to your well-being. In this episode, I’m looking at the pivotal ro…

Maintaining your weight isn't just a stagnant phase in your health journey; it's a powerful win that deserves recognition. I always say that there's a season of life when you're going to push and there's a season of life where you're just going to sit still. No one can be in push energy all the time. We have just had to navigate the holiday period …

As the new year approaches, many of us find ourselves reflecting on the past year and contemplating the changes we want to make in the coming months.

What if I told you that there’s no such thing as failure, only perception? A beautiful journey is one full of twists and turns, and ups and downs.

Our words and thoughts have a big effect on our actions and attitude. Most of us understand this principle, but it’s a lot harder to put it into practice than it might seem.

When it comes to protein, how do you know whether plant-based or animal-based proteins are the right call? How do you gauge the amount of protein that you should be intaking?

When I see people losing weight and keeping it off, it is not an accident. When someone is struggling or having a hard time, those thoughts can start to creep in like ‘Why is my body doing this to me?’ or ‘Why does it have to be hard for me?’. All of those thoughts are valid but the real focus should be on taking massive action toward our goals. To…

Have you ever used alcohol to relax after a long day at work? Or to have more fun in your social engagements? You might even use it to detach from yourself, quieten your mind, and numb your feelings.

‘What kind of labs should my doctor be checking?’ This is a question I often get asked, and a great one because labs are an extremely helpful tool to help pinpoint possible sources of weight gain, screen for underlying conditions, and help to determine if weight loss medications can be used safely.
