ESCAPING THE DIET TRAP
WITH KAREN MARTEL
If you’ve got Hashimoto’s or hypothyroidism, odds are you’ve had some weight gain and weight loss challenges. You’ve probably spent years, if not decades on a diet.
If you’ve been listening to the Let’s Talk Thyroid podcast for a while, you might remember my guest, Karen Martel from episode 49 all about how to lose weight with Hashimoto’s/hypothyroidism. Well Karen is back on the show and together we are talking about how to escape the diet trap that so many of us (ourselves included) have found our way into.
- Our respective dieting experiences over many decades – I was 11 and Karen was 13 when we went on our first diet.
- How to escape the diet trap.
- What we can learn from dieting.
- Finding the right ‘way of eating’.
- Food addiction.
- Fasting – in particular the Fasting Mimicking Diet.
- Finding our own ebb and flo as part of a lifestyle approach.
- Setting realistic weight loss goals.
- Is tracking helpful?
- Body image
- Peri-menopause and how hormonal changes during this period can cause weight gain – and what to do about it.
- The connection with thyroid hormones and peri-menopause.
Thank you Karen for another fun and helpful conversation.
