    Spring Forward Series: Rethink Weight Loss with Michelle Cardel

    Spring Forward Series: Rethink Weight Loss with Michelle Cardel

    Welcome to Ellie's Spring Forward series where she revisits some of her most popular episodes that will help put winter behind you.

    Two things are true about health and weight that seem to be diametrically opposed to one another. One truth: diet culture and focusing on weight loss is toxic. And the other truth: many people in the US would be healthier and feel better if they lost weight. How do we reconcile these seemingly conflicting concerns as individuals and as a society? The conversation about it has gotten so heated that many are left confused, frustrated and vulnerable.

    In this episode, Dr. Michelle Cardel, a Puerto Rican nutrition scientist, registered dietitian, the Senior Director of Global Clinical Research & Nutrition at WW, and a faculty member at the University of Florida College of Medicine, where she is also an Associate Director for the Center for Integrative Cardiovascular and Metabolic Diseases, helps us figure it out, encouraging us to rethink how we think about weight, and assess whether we want to think about it at all.
