When it comes to weight loss, so many of us feel that we need to restrict our food, punish the body with exercise, and be in a constant state of worry. We expect our weight loss journey to be an ongoing battle where we can never truly relax and live.
But there’s a much better way.
In this episode, Marc David works with guest podcast client David, and challenges the belief that weight and health goals have to be difficult. At age 74, David wants to lose weight and eat healthy, but he’s tired of all the hard work.
He knows what he wants, but he’s confused about how to get there.
David would like to enjoy food and not live in a state of restriction, but at the same time, he wishes he could be 40 pounds lighter.
Fed up by the cycle of working hard to lose weight, and then gaining it right back, David wonders:
“Can’t I just be me? When do I get to just live my life?”
Listen in as they explore the power of cultivating a more natural and easy relationship with food and body. Instead of punishing the body into weight loss, Marc helps David develop a strategy to nourish himself into finding his natural weight.
“You have a natural relationship with food and with your appetite. You just have to create the conditions for that to emerge,” Marc says.
Paradoxically, by taking weight loss off the table, not only can we finally relax and enjoy life, but we actually create the ideal conditions for real and lasting weight loss.
You’ll also hear Marc share valuable insights on:
✅ How putting “pressure” on food to make us lose weight doesn’t work.
✅ Creating a relaxed relationship with the body that gets us closer to our natural weight.
✅ How having a spiritual reckoning with ourselves can help us have a more loving body image.
✅ Why clarity about our life’s purpose is especially powerful for older men and health.
