Love Your Practice

Welcome back to my third episode! This is a more science-y episode, but don’t expect it to be as dry as a high school textbook. I’m talking today about the two main reasons why I was overweight. You might see a lot of similarities between my lifestyle and yours, and I hope what I’ve learned can help you finally kick that weight. 

Yes, weight gain can be narrowed down to two big reasons: over-desire and over-hunger. In my last episode, I talked about dopamine and how it can relieve your stress and make you feel great. Unfortunately, this dopamine is released whether the behaviors are healthy or not. This can trick you into eating more, especially when it comes to our favorite sweet treats and candies, or what I refer to as “concentrated foods”. You start to desire these kinds of foods that aren’t always good for you and can cause you to gain weight, or make it harder for you to lose weight. 

Modern food is designed to hit that bliss point in our brains and release that surge of dopamine. This only entices us to eat more and more and more, and you know exactly what that leads to. Luckily, I’ve learned a new way to eat that overcomes this desire and helped me finally lose weight over this past year. You don’t have to fight the dopamine anymore. There’s a way you can break free and lose weight, and I’m talking all about it in today’s episode. 

Tune in now to hear how sugar influences your physical hunger and why this sugar just makes you hungrier and hungrier. This hunger combined with your desire for concentrated foods is what makes it so hard to lose weight. I’ve designed a weight loss plan, tweaked it for the dental community, and made it possible for you to eat, stay full, and lose the weight so you can get back to the healthy lifestyle your body is really craving.
