Aside from body image, health seems to be one of the biggest concerns about gaining weight. Because weight gain is common for many people recovering from eating disorders, health is a big sticking point making recovery harder and more complicated. In this episode, we're looking at the relationship between weight and health, to include: Stef explains why she can't look at her bloodwork results as the episode records Separating the impact of binge eating (and restriction!!) on health versus weight Defining "health at every size" Does health decrease when BMI increases? An anecdote. Why isn't the desire for better health enough to get us to stop eating in a disordered way? The relationship between health and our self-esteem The rebel response -- what's that got to do with health? Mental health as a gateway to physical health The power of lowering expectations Why don't we want to take care of ourselves when we're feeling low? Why wouldn't we want to help ourselves? The concept of self-sabotage. The difference between being broken and just being lost or in a freeze state The role of shame Health and fearmongering Regulating the nervous system as a strategy The Roseto Effect https://www.tbsnews.net/thoughts/roseto-effect-secret-long-life-512826 Join the LAD Membership Connect with the show!

Ira Sahay is a Metabolic Health Coach based in Mumbai, India. She serves as the Media Head and is a member of dLife.in, India's largest and only award-winning low-carb platform. In 2021, Ira was diagnosed with a life-threatening autoimmune kidney disease called Membranous Nephropathy. This condition caused her to leak 7635 mg/dl of protein (proteinuria), leading to significant hair loss, reduced skin firmness, and muscle mass depletion due to the severe protein loss through her kidneys. At that time, kidney transplantation seemed inevitable. Despite seeking answers from medical professionals, Ira found none that satisfied her. Consequently, she delved into research and, contrary to medical advice to limit protein intake for her kidney condition, she adopted a strict Carnivore diet. Remarkably, within a year, Ira's condition improved dramatically. Upon reevaluation by the same doctor at the same hospital, it was noted on her prescription that her Membranous Nephropathy had spontaneously gone into remission. Today, Ira is dedicated to helping patients, particularly those with autoimmune disorders, while also effectively assisting individuals suffering from metabolic syndromes such as Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, Obesity, PCOS, and Fatty Liver. She has observed remarkable outcomes from the Carnivore diet in her clients. Known as "Low Carb Healer" on Twitter, she can be reached at her handle - @TheIraSahay.

Episode 156: Obesity, Fertility, and PregnancyFuture Dr. Hamilton defines obesity and explains the pathophysiology of obesity and its effects on fertility and pregnancy. Dr. Arreaza adds some input about the impact of epigenetics on newborn babies. Written by Shelby Hamilton, MS3, American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine. Editing by Hector Arreaza, MD.You are listening to Rio Bravo qWeek Podcast, your weekly dose of knowledge brought to you by the Rio Bravo Family Medicine Residency Program from Bakersfield, California, a UCLA-affiliated program sponsored by Clinica Sierra Vista, Let Us Be Your Healthcare Home. This podcast was created for educational purposes only. Visit your primary care provider for additional medical advice.Definition of obesityObesity is a multifactorial chronic disease that is increasing in prevalence across the globe. It can be defined as a body mass index (or BMI) greater than 30 kg/m2. According to the CDC from 2017-March 2020, the prevalence of obesity in United States adults was 41.9%.Classification of obesity by BMI.Obesity can further be divided into three classes: class I which is a BMI between 30-34.9; class II which is a BMI between 35-39.5; and class III which is a BMI greater than 40. We recommend avoiding the term “morbid obesity” because of the negative connotation of the word “morbid.” Class III or severe are better terms in those cases. This classification is based on the individual risk of cardiovascular disease. One of the greatest health consequences affecting individuals with obesity is the cardiovascular effects including hypertension, dyslipidemia, and coronary artery disease. Other effects include insulin resistance and diabetes, cholelithiasis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis, and even depression.How Does Obesity Affect Fertility?Obesity can have an extensive effect on the overall health of an individual. In addition to these commonly discussed effects, obesity can also influence a person's fertility. This is especially observed in women with polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) who have a greater BMI and also have symptoms of anovulation. Excess adipose tissue plays a role in the effects that obesity has on fertility. White adipose tissue can secrete a specific group of cytokines known as ‘adipokines'. These adipokines include leptin, ghrelin, resistin, visfatin, chemerin, omentin, and adiponectin. With a greater percentage of adipose tissue, there are higher rates of hypothalamic gonadotropin hormonal dysregulation, which can be combined with insulin-related disorders, low sex hormone binding proteins, and high levels of androgens. The combination of these factors can result in decreased ovarian follicle development and decreased progesterone levels.Hormonal changesObesity is an endocrine disorder. One specific adipokine that affects the hypothalamic-gonadotropin axis is chemerin. Chemerin impairs the release of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) from the pituitary gland. This reduction in FSH release consequently leads to anovulation, meaning that no egg will be released from an ovarian follicle, contributing to infertility. Shelby: Another adipokine affecting fertility is adiponectin. The receptors of adiponectin are predominantly expressed in reproductive tissues, including the ovaries and endometrium. In individuals with a greater BMI, a decrease in adiponectin secretion has been observed, resulting in decreased stimulation of its receptors, especially in the endometrium, which has been linked to recurrent implantation failure. Adiponectin has also been shown to affect glucose uptake in the liver. With reduced adiponectin levels, there is reduced hepatic glucose uptake, leading to insulin resistance. As tissues become less sensitive to insulin, the body compensates by secreting higher amounts of insulin, leading to hyperinsulinemia. Higher levels of circulating insulin have also been proven to cause hyperandrogenemia in women by blocking the hepatic production of sex hormone-binding globulin. Insulin can also act on the IGF-1 receptors in the theca cells, increasing steroidogenesis, and thus, increasing androgens. With hyperandrogenemia, there is also increased granulosa cell apoptosis as well as increased peripheral conversion of androgens into estrogen. This creates negative feedback to the hypothalamic-pituitary axis to decrease the release of gonadotropins such as FSH which are critical in ovulation.Leptin is another adipokine that is shown to be increased in obesity. Studies on mice have shown that leptin impairs the development of ovarian follicles, resulting in a decrease in ovulation. In these studies, it was also observed that leptin reduces the production of estriol by the granulosa cells in the ovarian follicles as well as increases the rate of apoptosis in granulosa cells, both of which affect ovulation. Leptin decreases hunger, but persons with obesity may be resistant to its effects and that's why they have higher levels than a person with normal weight. They have high levels of leptin but are still hungry because they have leptin resistance.Studies have also shown that the fatty acid composition of follicular fluid found in ovarian follicles also plays a role in fertility. In individuals with a high BMI, this fluid contains high levels of oleic acid, which can cause embryo fragmentation after fertilization occurs. Stearic acid is another fatty acid found in elevated levels in the follicular fluid of women with a greater BMI, which can also affect the quality of the embryo while in the blastomere stage.The bottom line is obesity decreases fertility. It does not mean that patients with obesity will not get pregnant, but it can make it harder to get pregnant. Female patients who are losing weight must be warned about their improved fertility once they start to lose weight.What effect does obesity have on pregnancy?While obesity may make it more difficult for a woman to get pregnant, it is not impossible. However, there are potential risks both to the mother's health as well as the baby's health. Therefore, it is very important to monitor these patients even more carefully.Women who have a greater BMI pre-pregnancy are at a greater risk of developing gestational hypertension. Gestational hypertension is defined as blood pressure greater than 140/90 on more than one reading in the second half of pregnancy. Hypertension during pregnancy can also have serious complications such as kidney failure, stroke, myocardial infarction, or even heart failure. Gestational hypertension can also result in preterm birth or low birth weight.Treatment of mild hypertension in pregnancyRecent studies published in the AFP Journal support the treatment of mild hypertension in pregnancy. It states that “evidence and expert opinion support treating mild chronic hypertension in pregnancy with approved antihypertensives, with a strength of recommendation: B”. There was a randomized control trial with about 2,000 women who were randomized to receive antihypertensive treatment vs no treatment. The treatment group had a lower incidence of preeclampsia with severe features, preterm birth, placental abruption, and neonatal or fetal death. There was not an increase in fetal growth restriction or maternal or neonatal complications. So, it is advisable to treat chronic, mild hypertension in pregnancy, according to the AFP Journal.PreeclampsiaPreeclampsia is another condition that is at a higher risk in women with obesity, which is a more serious manifestation of hypertension in the second half of pregnancy. Along with high blood pressure, there are also effects on the kidneys and liver. Hypertension accompanied by proteinuria is indicative of preeclampsia and should be taken seriously. Preeclampsia can become eclampsia, where the patient also experiences seizures. There is also the risk for stroke, HELLP syndrome, placenta abruption, preterm birth, and fetal growth restriction.Gestational diabetesAnother risk is gestational diabetes. Elevated blood glucose during pregnancy can result in a larger baby and delivery by cesarean. There may also be a greater risk of the mother and child developing diabetes mellitus later on in life.OSAWomen with a greater BMI may also be at risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea during pregnancy. Not only can this result in fatigue but can also contribute to the development of gestational hypertension and preeclampsia.Effect of obesity on the fetusAs mentioned, there are some risks to the fetus in women with a greater pre-pregnancy BMI. There is a greater risk for these babies to be born with birth defects such as congenital heart defects and neural tube defects. Another risk previously discussed is macrosomia, or large for gestational age. Larger babies are also at increased risk for shoulder dystocia during delivery as well as resulting clavicle fractures, brachial plexus injuries, and nerve palsies. Preterm birth is another risk, which also increases the risk of short-term and long-term health complications. Lastly, a higher BMI is directly correlated with the risk of spontaneous abortion or stillbirth.SummaryAs the prevalence of obesity increases, it is important to discuss the health risks that are associated with this disease. In our patients of childbearing age and who may be hoping to conceive, it is even more important to discuss how a higher BMI may affect fertility and pregnancy. While discussing these topics with patients, it is important to try our best to build rapport with the patient so that the discussion is seen more as one of concern and support rather than one of criticism regarding their weight. We may want to help by not only telling patients to “lose weight” or “diet”, but we can also provide them with resources regarding dietary adjustments and ways they can incorporate physical activity into their lives without just telling them to eat less and move more. Stay tuned for our episode on the management of obesity in pregnancy.ConclusionNow we conclude episode number 156, “Obesity, fertility, and pregnancy.” Future Dr. Hamilton explained how obesity affects the hormonal regulation of fertility. She also explained the obstetrical risks associated with obesity. Primary care professionals need to educate our patients about the benefits of preconception weight control. Dr. Arreaza explained that hypertension is a common condition in pregnant patients with obesity and mentioned the benefits of treating mild hypertension in pregnancy. We hope to bring you an episode on the management of obesity in pregnancy soon, so stay tuned! This week we thank Hector Arreaza and Shelby Hamilton.

The growing popularity of medicines that curb appetite is having an impact on consumption of less-healthy foods. Here's what that could mean for packaged snacks, soda, alcohol and fast food.----- Transcript -----Welcome to Thoughts on the Market. I'm Pamela Kaufman, Morgan Stanley's Tobacco and Packaged Food Analyst. Today I'll be talking about how obesity medicines are impacting food spending. It's Thursday, November 30th at 10 a.m. in New York. With Thanksgiving behind us, we've now entered the holiday season when many of us are focused on shopping, travel and, of course, food. The last 12 to 18 months have seen overwhelming growth in popularity for a glucagon-like peptide 1 or GLP-1 anti-obesity medications. These medications were first approved for the treatment of type two diabetes more than 15 years ago and for the treatment of obesity more than 8 years ago. But the inflection point came only recently when the formulation and delivery of GLP-1 drugs improved from once daily injections to once weekly injections, and even an oral formulation. There were also some key FDA approvals that opened the doors for widespread use. How effective are these new and improved GLP-1 drugs? Essentially, they target areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food consumption so that patients feel full longer, have a reduced appetite and consume less food. Studies show that patients taking the injectable GLP-1 medicines can lose approximately 10 to 20% of their body weight. One of the key debates in the market right now is how the growing use of GLP-1 drugs will affect various industries within the larger food ecosystem. The fact that patients on anti-obesity drugs experience a significant reduction in appetite impacts their food habits and consumption. The "Food Meets Pharma" debate is one we've been tracking closely, and our most recent work indicates that shoppers with obesity spend about 1% more on groceries compared to shoppers without obesity. But we see a larger difference across less healthy categories. Over the last year, obese shoppers spent more on candy, frozen meals and beverages, but less on produce, fish and beans and grains. In addition, shoppers with obesity spend more at large fast food chains. Our own survey data and various medical studies point to a drastic 60 to 70% reduction in consumption of less healthy categories in patients taking GLP-1 drugs, driven by the significant changes observed in their food consumption and preferences. As drug use grows, we can see an increasing impact across various food and beverage related industries in the U.S. For example, among our beverages coverage, U.S. shoppers with obesity spend more on carbonated soft drinks and salty snacks. Shoppers with obesity also spend more on fast food and on a relative basis, less at fast casual restaurants and casual diners. But obesity medicines are starting to change these habits. Furthermore, 62% of GLP-1 patients report consuming less alcohol since starting on the medications, with 56% of those consuming less reporting at least a 75% reduction in alcohol consumption. So what's our outlook for drug adoption? Morgan Stanley research estimates that the global obesity prescription market will reach $77 billion in the next decade, with $51 billion in the U.S. By 2035, my colleagues expect 7% of the U.S. population will be on anti-obesity medication. Given these projections, the "Food Meets Pharma" debate will remain relevant and something investors should watch closely. Thanks for listening.

In October a special event occurred in Seattle titled Real Talk on Men's Health, an evening of presentations on prevention and lifestyle tips from men's health experts. The event also reviewed a groundbreaking effort to create a state commission on boys and men. Presentations covered the following topics: Longevity, Sexual Health, ED & Testosterone, Heart Health, Benign Prostatic Enlargement, Prostate and Testicular Cancer, Metabolic Syndrome, Diabetes and Obesity (updates in management & medications), and a update regarding House Bill 1270, a Washington State bill to create a state commission for boys and men. This episode of the Original Guide to Men's Health will include 3 of the presentations from that evening. We begin with a brief update on why a commission for boys and men is so important. Following that, is a presentation on longevity and completing this episode is a presentation on sexual health. ED and Tesosterone.

The use of Ozempic/Wegovy and similar medications such as Mounjaro for weight management is rapidly evolving. As they continue to be studied further and receive FDA approvals, including the approval of Zepbound this month, the question becomes whether they can be a meaningful substitute for bariatric surgery. Ozempic has been used to treat type 2 diabetes since 2017. When used for weight loss, semaglutide is used at higher doses and marketed as Wegovy. Newer medications such as Mounjaro (tirzepatide) have entered the market for and will be marketed under the name Zepbound for the sole purpose of weight loss. When combined with healthy lifestyle choices, people can lose 15-20% of body weight over a six month course on semaglutide and up to 25% on tirzepatide. Dr. Bass answers everyone's biggest questions about the use of these medications for weight loss, including: Does insurance help cover the cost? Who is a candidate? Can these medications be a meaningful substitute for bariatric surgery? Does the weight rebound once you stop? About Dr. Lawrence Bass Innovator. Industry veteran. In-demand Park Avenue board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lawrence Bass is a true master of his craft, not only in the OR but as an industry pioneer in the development and evaluation of new aesthetic technologies.

Ozempic and a popular new class of medications like it are transforming the medical approach to obesity, challenging traditional perspectives on weight and its treatment. However, this drug, initially designed for diabetes management, is facing a global shortage due to its popularity among weight-loss enthusiasts. Using drugs to stop cravings - isn't that a bad thing? Are there any side effects that we should be aware of? On the show: Heyang, Niu Honglin & Yushun

This is a tough time of year! The space between Thanksgiving and Christmas, where everything seems like it's geared towards indulgent eating, can feel like a month-long binge. Additionally with the new year on the way, it can also start to feel just as hopeful as it is hopeless, when you might be choosing between depriving yourself completely or letting yourself off the hook. In this episode, I want to touch on how this is a crucial season in changing your mindset and setting yourself up for success for the next 4 quarters to come. Listen to this episode to hear more on:• The “grief panic” that sets in and why it's unproductive to say goodbye to foods you enjoy.• You're not the problem, the plan you have set for the new year is the problem. • Mindset shifts with how you feel about eating, and deciding what kind of headspace you want to go into holidays with.• Depriving yourself vs. indulging in everything over Christmas.• The last quarter, not the first, sets the tone for the rest of the year. It's hard to work towards your goals when it feels like that ship has already sailed and it's even more difficult to get things under control when you feel like you already blew it, so don't overcomplicate things and meet yourself where you are currently! In the meantime, keep trying, keep tracking, don't be intimidated and don't give up. You've totally got this!Stop struggling.

This episode is brought to you by Mitopure and LMNT.For nearly all of our history, humans consumed no grains, and our bodies are designed to work very well without them. Today, however, grain-based foods are by far the number one source of calories in the American diet. While whole grains can be a great source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, the toxic amounts we eat contribute to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and dementia. Plus, most of the grains we eat—even whole wheat—are turned into flour products which have a higher glycemic index than table sugar.In today's episode of my series I'm calling Health Bites, I talk about why grains are such a contentious food, how to tackle the pros and cons of whether it belongs in your diet, and which grains are actually okay to eat.

The holiday season is a time for celebration, family, and friends. It is also a time when many people overindulge in food and drink, leading to weight gain. In fact, studies have shown that people tend to gain an average of one to two pounds during the holidays. This weight gain may not seem like much, but it can add up over time and lead to serious health problems. Factors Contributing to Holiday Obesity There are a number of factors that contribute to holiday weight gain. The abundance of rich, unhealthy foods, the increased consumption of alcohol, and the lack of exercise can all lead to excess calorie intake and weight gain. Additionally, the stress of the holiday season can lead to emotional eating, which can make it even more difficult to control weight. Tips for Preventing Holiday Weight Gain The holiday season is a time to be enjoyed, but it is important to be mindful of your eating and drinking habits. Here are a few tips for preventing holiday weight gain: Set realistic expectations. Don't expect to avoid all holiday treats. Instead, focus on moderation and balance. Make healthy choices. When you do indulge, choose healthier options, such as fruits, vegetables, and lean protein. Limit your alcohol intake. Alcohol is high in calories and can lower your inhibitions, making you more likely to overeat. Stay active. Make time for exercise even during the busy holiday season. Even a short walk can help burn calories and reduce stress. Don't stress. Stress can lead to emotional eating. Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as yoga, meditation, or spending time in nature. Use smaller plates. Eating from smaller plates can help you trick your brain into feeling full sooner. Drink plenty of water. Water can help you feel full and reduce your intake of sugary drinks. Get enough sleep. When you are well-rested, you are better able to cope with stress and control your appetite. Find a support system. Surrounding yourself with supportive people can help you stay on track with your healthy eating goals. By following these tips, you can enjoy the holidays without sabotaging your health and weight loss goals. Remember, it's okay to indulge occasionally, but it's important to get back on track as soon as possible. With a little effort, you can prevent holiday weight gain and maintain a healthy weight throughout the year. Conclusion The holiday season is a time to celebrate, but it's important to be mindful of your health. By following a few simple tips, you can enjoy the holidays without overindulging and gaining weight. With a little effort, you can maintain a healthy lifestyle throughout the year.

Michelle Hurn, RD, is a returning guest on our show! Be sure to check out her first appearances on our podcast on episodes 80 and 150 of Boundless Body Radio! Michelle Hurn is a registered dietitian with over a decade of experience as a clinical, acute care dietitian, lead dietitian in psychiatric care, and outpatient dietitian. While practicing inpatient and outpatient care in the hospital setting, Michelle discovered a disheartening connecting between the high carbohydrate, low fat, “sugar in moderation,” nutrition guidelines she was required to teach, and the rapidly declining health of her patients. Michelle is the author of the book, The Dietitian's Dilemma: What would you do if your health was restored by doing the opposite of everything you were taught?, detailing how the current nutrition guidelines came into existence and advocating a low carbohydrate, animal-based way of eating as an option for individuals struggling with diabetes, mental disorders, eating disorders, sarcopenia, and heart disease. As an endurance athlete, she discovered the many benefits of low carb eating. Michelle won her first Ultra-Marathon in 2020, covering 44.63 miles in a 6-hour time frame.Find Michelle at-IG- runeatmeatrepeathttps://thedietitiansdilemma.net/TW- @michellehurnrdAmazon- The Dietitian's Dilemma: What would you do if your health was restored by doing the opposite of everything you were taught?Find Boundless Body at- myboundlessbody.com Book a session with us here!
