    Reinvigorate Your Resolution

    Reinvigorate Your Resolution

    Has your New Year's Resolution gone stale? Did you set yourself up for success on January 1st or did you set a goal without any guidance?
    On this episode, the DoctorXDietitian Duo is here to help you revitalize and reconsider the New Year's resolution. They will teach you all about SMART goals that can be used in any area of your life, ways to stick to your plan, and what to do if you get off track. Dr. Dovec talks about how she feels about resolutions- spoiler alert: she's a fan- and how this year has felt different. Hannah discusses her struggles with sticking to a plan and ways she has found to overcome that struggle. So whether your goal is weight loss, more exercise, dealing with challenges in your bariatric surgery journey, or something completely unrelated (growing your podcast, perhaps!), the team is here to support and guide you through it!

    Pasta, Potatoes, & Breads, Oh My!

    Pasta, Potatoes, & Breads, Oh My!

    So, what is the deal with carbs? Good, bad, overhyped?
    This DoctorXDietitian episode breaks down carbohydrates in the diet - the different types, how much you need, and the best ways to incorporate them into a balanced diet
    Along with proteins and fats, carbohydrates are one of three main nutrients (macronutrients or “macros”) found in foods and drinks.
    The DoctorXDietitian duo will round out their macronutrient conversation with the oh-so-confusing and sometimes scary carbs. However, it is important to learn how to embrace carbs in the diet, regardless of where you are in your bariatric and weight loss journey.
    Carbohydrates, aka carbs, are the body's preferred source of fuel. Your body breaks down carbohydrates into glucose. Glucose, or blood sugar, is the main source of energy for your cells, tissues, and organs. Not having enough carbs in your diet can make you feel sluggish, experience digestive issues and even have bad breath. Fun times! ;)
    Don’t miss this fun and informative episode!

Great podcast!

Dr. Dovec and Hannah are incredibly smart and helpful, and they’re also fun to listen to and keep it real! As a fellow dietitian, I’d recommend this show to anyone wanting to learn more about weight loss in a relaxed and low pressure format.

Informative and fun!

I love this podcast. I stumbled upon it few months ago and have learned so much about weight, diet, and overall health. This podcast empowered me to talk to my own doctor about medically assisted weight loss! Love the energy and approachable nature of the language they use.

Refreshing and FUN

Two Bariatric experts bringing me more than what I can get in an appointment. Amazing to hear a bit of reality. If you’ve had or are thinking about Bariatric surgery, this is for you!!!
