Educational, Compassionate & Important
This podcast is very unique & informative to those either considering weight loss surgery, have had it already or to those who know someone struggling with obesity & is interesting in really understanding the biology of obesity. The host Regar does an outstanding job approaching this very complex subject from all angles; physiologically, mentally & emotionally. Thank you for this important podcast!
I started listening before surgery, 5 years ago. I still come back and listen when I need a reminder, encouragement or empathy, if that makes sense. #103 is one I like to share with people. But I love every episode. Reeger is a champion & coach for people who struggle with obesity.
Still relevant seven years later
This podcast was recommended by my bariatric surgery center. It’s been a huge help in preparing for life after bariatric surgery. I highly recommend it for everyone who’s curious about weight loss surgery and just the day to day struggles with obesity.
