The biology of obesity is complex. The traditional practice of cutting calories and increasing expenditure, in all its simplicity, gives the illusion of being the obvious approach. It surely may work in the short term, but usually falters in the long run. As we gain new insights and develop new empirics, we move a step closer to cracking this code.

The Decoding Obesity podcast will help you develop a deeper understanding of this disease, develop a healthy relationship with nutrition, promote self-care, and emote a new confidence of ”Yes, I can do it!”

    Episode 99: Lessons Learnt As A Trainer From Helping Sean Mulroney

    Episode 99: Lessons Learnt As A Trainer From Helping Sean Mulroney

    Last year, I had Sean Mulroney on the show, and he shared his story about how he lost over 100 pounds and got started with his personal trainer. So I thought it might be a good idea to get one of his personal trainers on the show to get her perspective on how she helped Sean and what were the challenges that she faced while training Sean. 

    Jamie Gilliam is an MS in exercise science. She has worked very closely with Sean and personally trained him physically to become more physically active.

    Episode 98: How To Start Exercising In A Larger Body

    Exercise is essential for our overall health. But often our body puts limitations on how much exercise we can perform and what exercises we can perform. This is especially true for people with a larger body size. Join me as I discuss this very topic with Michael Johnson. He has been a clinical exercise physiologist and currently works in a weight management medical facility that takes a multidisciplinary approach to weight loss.

    Episode 97: Role of exercise in weight loss

    Exercise is an essential part of overall health but it is also important for obesity. We had Jessica Callear on the previous episode talk about how to increase physical activity in children. We've often seen ads for gyms and other exercise programs promising the moon with all the testimonials to back them up. But what is the truth? Today, I’m happy to welcome Jessica back to the show. Together, we take a deeper look into exercise and physical activity as it pertains to obesity.

    Episode 95: Journal Club- 10 Year Outcomes of Children and Adolescents Who Underwent Sleeve Gastrectomy

    I'm starting a new segment on this podcast because I wanted to do something different. I'm going to call it the Journal Club. So what I want to do is get some guests on the show who are experts in their fields and talk about one particular article that may be sort of like a seminal article or something that's going to be of value to you.

     

    The article discussed today: Ten-Year Outcomes of Children and Adolescents Who Underwent Sleeve Gastrectomy: Weight Loss, Comorbidity Resolution, Adverse Events, and Growth Velocity

Knowledge is power!

I enjoy this podcast because there’s a variety of guests and it presents researched topics.

Big fan

I am big fan of this podcast. It touches on an epidemic that continues to grow primarily because we fail to understand the multitude of reasons that contribute to obesity. Always learn from Dr. Sabharwal and his guest speakers.

Informative

Great podcast and non-biased presentation. There are so many approaches and ideas about obesity and it’s treatment that it can be dicey territory. Appreciate that varying viewpoints are discussed here with an open mind.
