Episode 26: Obesity if a disease that requires us to understand our relationship with food and what triggers us to eat when we're not hungry.
Losing weight doesn't start in the gym. It starts in the kitchen - and more importantly, it's most effective when we understand why it is that we do what we do, and why we eat what we do. Understanding yourself is key to losing weight and keeping it off. This week we explore this extremely important topic with Doctor Angela Zechmann.
3:34 One of my clients actually said every time I gained all that weight back, it was as if everybody could see that I had once again failed. And it just felt so humiliating!

I want people to understand is that this actually is a disease
13:33 (The Food Industry) Wants to put just the right amount of chemicals and sugar in stuff that we get the maximum amount of pleasure, but not too much. Cause if it's too sweet, you're going to put it away. So they very purposefully are like, let's hit the ‘bliss point’ - that's what they call it. So they'll do experiments with young children even to find out how much sugar they should put in a yogurt so that the kid will be addicted.
The journey towards lasting weight loss is actually a journey to get to know yourself more fully and more clearly. And it's a really powerful journey when done right. When done correctly, you can take what you learn about yourself in your weight loss journey, and you can apply it to all other aspects of your life too. It's such a powerful, powerful thing. When we learn to understand - what am I feeling? Why am I feeling it? What am I thinking? Where did I learn to think this way? It's like swimming in a little aquarium of water that we sort of grew up in. And we have all of these ideas and beliefs about ourself that we think that's just the way it is.
