One of my former clients, Sarah, joins me for today’s episode about how she healed from stress and anxiety around food, to finding food freedom while also lowering her A1c.
Sarah first shares her personal PCOS story and how she has disconnected health from the number on the scale. After seeing a reel on social media of a physician speaking out about patients who decline to have their weight taken, Sarah shares her feelings about this being shared on a public forum, how it may affect individuals withPCOS and/or anxiety around their weight. We then talk about when doctors do and don’t need your weight, and the importance of finding a healthcare team that you are able to work in collaboration with.
If you are wanting to have less stress around food, dieting isn’t working, and are hesitant to not be focused on your weight, please tune in.
In this episode, we cover:
- Sarah’s PCOS story
- Declining your weight at the doctor’s office
- The importance of giving patients a choice
- When weighing patients is for their safety
- How to stop dieting when it’s not working
