The School of Weight Loss

14 Favorites

Welcome to The School of Weight Loss, a podcast dedicated to women in the overweight or obese categories who've tried it all and are ready to get real about creating simple healthy weight loss that lasts. If you have ever heard yourself say "I'll start again Monday" or know what "diet day 1" looks like, then this podcast is for you! On this podcast, I am here to help you ditch uselessly complicated diet rules, gain control of emotional eating, and create a simple weight loss plan that you can and want to stick when life hits (because it will, and that's ok). I'm Dr. Emily VinZant, an Obesity Medicine & Family Medicine Physician and Certified Life and Weight Loss Coach, and I've made it my mission to help you get healthy while losing weight. That means knowing what the experts say works (and what's a waste of time!) and making it work for your body, your tastes, and your lifestyle. It's creating the plan you can and want to stick to in real life... and then learning how to stick to it. With my expert level knowledge and simple logical plans, you will say goodbye to fad diets, yo-yo weight loss cycles, and out of control emotional eating to hit your healthy weight goals and live there. Each week, you will hear from me and other success stories as we take evidence-based tools and simplify them to fit the ladies who just want to get healthy, grab a size medium from the shelf, and conquer this weight battle. You will leave this podcast feeling energized at the simplicity and empowered to make it work for you. If living at your healthy weight goal, becoming an active participant in your life, and leaving the legacy that matters to you are your priorities, this podcast is for you. And so is my Lively Lady Club, my monthly weight loss membership full of ladies just like you. We've got education, inspiration, and community to support you in this journey.

Fasting vs Weight Loss Shots: Same Weight Loss Results?

Is fasting the non-weight loss shot equivalent? I think so. In this episode, I'm sharing the benefits of both tools, what I bet you didn't realize they share in common, and the downsides of both. You get my MD, coach, and spiritual brain all in one episode. From decreasing physical hunger to their effects on emotional hunger and food rewards, the weight loss shots and fasting are more comparable than you think. Yet one provides a much greater space for personal growth than the other. If you are thinking about tools to decrease physical hunger, conquer emotional hunger, and get you to your weight loss goals, this episode is a must listen.

Where Spirituality, Medicine, and Weight Loss Connect with Dr. Dan Kuckel

1/22/2024
Can integrating spirituality get you better health results? What does the world of evidence-based medicine say about that? I'm joined by Dr. Dan Kuckel on the podcast today to share his expert-level knowledge on this topic. Dr. Kuckel's article The Spiritual Assessment in the AAFP Journal opened my mind to deeper integration of spirituality, medicine, and weight loss and it will for you, too. If you are a patient wondering about discussing spirituality with your health care provider or a provider wondering how important these discussions are in medicine, you can't miss this episode. As Dr. Kuckel shares, there is a disconnect between the two... and a place for growth and healing when we open the door to healthy communication. You can read Dr. Kuckel's AAFP article by clicking here. The yellowed-highlighted copy still sits on my desk.
