I’ve hesitated to approach this subject for a long time.
Partly, it’s because of my own checkered history with weight ups & downs, disordered eating, and general body image angst, but it’s also because it feels like our culture puts WAY too much emphasis on weight to the exclusion of other important measures of health. I didn’t want to add to the noise.
But after a few listener questions started to pile up asking for help with weight management from a natural & herbal perspective, I decided it was time for us to have this conversation.
Today’s episode will shed a new perspective on this familiar topic. I’ll explore:
- The first question you should ask yourself before setting a weight goal.
- Calories, counting, diets, and all the rest—how to decide what to do, if anything
- If it’s health you’re after, is changing your weight really the best goal?
- Harnessing creativity & joy on the way to your weight goals
