EP 58 – How to Set Health Goals without Dieting with Maggie Landes, MD

Happy New Year!  On this episode we are joined by recurring guest Maggie Landes, MD for a value packed discussion about New Year’s resolutions.

For those who set new year’s resolutions, almost half resolve to lose weight and the number one reason cited for setting this goal is to be healthy.

During our interview, Maggie and I discuss how health and weight are not the same thing and how we can actually lose sight of the full picture of health if weight is our primary focus.

What you’ll learn by listening:

  1. Why most New Year’s resolutions fall flat by mid February
  2. How to define health for yourself beyond the scale
  3. The dangers of weight cycling (losing and regaining weight over and over)
  4. How dieting actually puts you at increased risk for weight gain
  5. What to focus on instead of weight if you want to improve your health.
