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 the scale says, I want to use today’s episode as a reminder that our health is so much more than that. I’ll also be sharing a recent example from my own health journey which proves exactly why it’s so important to look beyond the scale.

Optimizing Fat Loss and Maintaining Muscle on a GLP 1 Mini-Course


Audio Stamps

01:29 - Dr. Rentea explains why the number on the scale is irrelevant if you are not doing body composition tracking (using her own, personal example).

04:06
- We learn how rapid weight loss often comes at the expense of muscle mass.
06:34
- We hear why the focus should be on overall progress, not just the number on the scale (considering factors like body composition, improved mobility, and overall well-being).
08:26
- Dr. Rentea urges us to stop fixating on a specific weight, and instead focus on the long-term success we could achieve by making small, sustainable changes–regardless of the number on the scale.

Quotes

“When you've lost in the 30 to 40 pound range and you're able to keep that off with lifestyle, that's amazing because most people put it right back on within the first five years.” - Matthea Rentea MD

“This past month, the scale ‘only’ went down two pounds. But I had actually lost five pounds of fat and put on two pounds of muscle.” - Matthea Rentea MD

“One of the things that I really need you to keep in mind is that what the total [scale] number is, is almost irrelevant if you are not doing body composition tracking.” - Matthea Rentea MD

“People really glorify this fast weight loss. And I have to tell you, my patients that do that, they really sacrifice muscle at the expense of that.” - Matthea Rentea MD

“I don't need a scale to tell me that I am getting stronger and that I am headed in the right direction.” - Matthea Rentea MD

“It's not just what the total number is doing. It's overall, are you more functionally fit or maybe do you have less urges and cravings because you've actually started to bring more protein into your diet and you actually feel better? Maybe your sleep has improved?” - Matthea Rentea MD
