208: Weight Loss: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know The Funk'tional Nutrition Podcast

    • Alternative Health

A recurring theme on the show over the past month has been weight loss, and today’s episode is actually getting pulled from the archives because it’s SO relevant to the concepts discussed lately. It's an info-dense doozy that really speaks to the physical reasons your body might be holding onto weight or not be willing to release weight and things to consider before attempting weight loss.


We also have to acknowledge if you've been attempting weight loss for a long time, it probably warrants a new approach. Oftentimes this can be kind of a hard topic to address, especially since we commonly mix up losing weight with gaining health—when the reality is quite often the opposite. It’s easy to see why this confusion occurs when we consider our societal beliefs and the stories we’ve been telling ourselves for so long.


So today Erin gets into the nitty gritty with a listener question about deciphering when you truly do need to lose weight, common reasons behind weight loss resistance, and the top questions you should be asking yourself before attempting to lose weight. This episode is jam packed with loads of details and goes far beyond just looking at food for weight loss and overall health, so be sure to listen up for this one! Originally aired June 2019.
