    EP 62: Why Can’t I lose Weight No Matter What?

    Want to lose weight but struggling? It's not just about food and exercise! Learn about the role of hormonal imbalances, nutrition deficiencies, and sleep on weight loss from Dr. Tanya and Mary. Did you know an underactive thyroid and insulin resistance can cause weight gain? Prioritize a healthy hormone balance, adequate sleep, and a balanced diet for a holistic approach to weight loss.

    Losing weight is more than food in and exercise out. Dr. Tanya and Mary explore the various reasons why some people struggle to lose weight despite their best efforts. They discuss the role of hormonal imbalances, nutrition deficiencies, and sleep in weight loss.

    For example, an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) can cause weight gain.

    Insulin resistance, which can be caused by a variety of factors including genetics, diet, and lifestyle, can also contribute to weight gain by making it more difficult for the body to use glucose for energy.

    Inadequate sleep can lead to weight loss resistance by disrupting the balance of hormones that regulate appetite. Specifically, lack of sleep has been shown to increase levels of ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates appetite, while reducing levels of leptin, a hormone that suppresses appetite. This can lead to overeating and weight gain.

    Overall, the best way to promote weight loss is to maintain a healthy balance of hormones, get enough sleep, and eat a balanced diet that is rich in nutrient-dense foods. This is a holistic approach to weight loss, addressing the various factors that can contribute to weight loss resistance and offering actionable advice for overcoming these obstacles.

    EP 59: All about Egg Donation (ft. Dr. Timea Belej-Rak)

    EP 59: All about Egg Donation (ft. Dr. Timea Belej-Rak)

    This is a must not miss episode where we interview Ob-Gyn Dr. Timea Belej Rak and Mary Wong gets deeply personal for the first time about her own story with egg donation.

    Considering egg donation as an option can be scary.  Although this is not one's first (or even third option), it is a highly effective pathway for those who need it. More importantly, there is a connection fueled by epigenetics that develops between baby and mom during pregnancy. Even though the baby will not inherit her genetics, the baby is 100% biologically hers. That means mom gets to turn on genes through the environment she creates which is why it is important to stay healthy and live a balanced life for a better soil/terrain before, during and after pregnancy.

    Dr. Belej-Rak is an obstetrician gynecologist with subspecialty training in fertility.

    She believes in supporting the practice, education and research of a healing and prevention-based approach to health and well-being.  She has been passionately helping those who struggle to create life for over 15 years.  After going through her own fertility journey she made it her mission to increase awareness by writing the book “Embrace Your Fertility” with (co-authors including Dr. Tanya Wyde, ND) to provide a holistic approach, guidance and reassurance to those wishing to conceive.
