'Are you an emotional eater? Do you sabotage your own weight loss goals?
Goodness knows I have personally struggled with this one. You know.. how whenever you are stressed you reach for that comforting chocolate bar.
Reminiscent of that famous scene in the Bridget Jones movie when she breaks up with her man.
Ever wondered why when your logical thinking brain makes a decision to eat more healthily... you somehow sabotage yourself.
It's like someone else is in charge.
Well in this week episode scientist Matty Lansdown sits down with me to discuss such themes.
Matty Lansdown is a scientist & nutritionist with over 10 years of experience and a background working in the health system. Firstly, in a nutritional epigenetics lab servicing elite athletes and also working as part of a disease research team within hospitals.
Just a few years into his cancer hospital job, surrounded by amazing professors, doctors, PhD's nurses and fellow scientists he began to feel like an imposter. He was asking questions that no one else seemed to be asking, about the cause of disease and the impact of food on the body... It was so strange to him that quite obviously the large majority of patients were overweight or obese and no one talked about their diet or their lifestyle. Ever.
Despite that, I was 100% certain of what I had realised years before: that being overweight or obese was the number 1 predictor of getting any of the chronic diseases (..and often it ends up being several).
Working in this environment and asking unconventional questions led him down the research rabbit hole of mainstream medical history (hint, it's terrifying) but it also allowed many epiphanies and truths about health and wellness to flow into his mind and be realised.
And so feeling misaligned with this behemoth entity that runs the world, he left my corporate science career because I saw the grand canyon sized hole in the world of health, nutrition and weight loss:
On this podcast we have often talked about ideal diets and nutrition but never have we tackled the emotional aspect of it and in this episode that is exactly what we do.
So if you are sick of yo yo diets and never achieving sustainable fat loss, if you are sick of failing and feeling guilty then this is the episode for you. If you want to stay healthy and be in control then Matty is the man.
