Ask most people who are trying to improve their health what their #1 goal is, and more likely than not, they’ll answer “weight loss.”
It makes sense, right? We equate a lower number on the scale with better health because statistically-speaking, people who maintain a healthy body weight are far less likely to develop conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension, and much more likely to live longer and better.
Considering how many Americans are overweight or obese, it’s no wonder that so many doctors prescribe “weight loss” to their patients, and why there’s such a proliferation of weight loss products and services: weight loss is a billion-dollar industry.
However, while weight loss as a concept is benign, the way that most people approach this goal leaves something to be desired. Weight loss sits at the top of the “hierarchy of health,” but the way it’s understood and applied is all wrong.
In this “vlog,” I explain why weight loss as a goal leaves something to be desired, and what to focus on instead to ultimately get healthier, look better, and feel great!
