What if I Really Need or Want to Lose Weight? Feat. Amy Carlson

by | Oct 22, 2021 | Dieting, Podcast Episodes, Weight Loss

This engaging and fun interview with Amy Carlson–an RD and Eating Disorder specialist for more than twenty years–will make you smile and encourage your heart. We have a straight talk about what to do if you walk away from the doctor’s office (or anywhere) feeling like you have a mandate to lose weight. Plus, Amy answers the question, “What if I really need to lose weight, or want to? How can I be non-diet or not use diets if I really need to drop some pounds for my health!”

We also talk about how to have a “normal” relationship with food. This conversation goes in so many fun places – I had to make it two episodes! Don’t miss the second part on Tuesday because it will encourage your heart.

Today we talk about:

  • “The Holy Grail of Weight Loss” – How an older, more mature dietician gave Amy this surprising secret!
  • What to do if getting weighed at the doctor is a stressor for you.
  • How to understand where your doctor is coming from if your only mandate is weight loss.
  • How to become an expert on your own body, plus
  • Some of the unfortunate things we’ve done in the church that put too much emphasis on weight loss . . .
