About the Podcast

The biology of obesity is complex. The traditional practice of cutting calories and increasing expenditure, in all its simplicity, gives the illusion of being the obvious approach. It surely may work in the short term, but usually falters in the long run. As we gain new insights and develop new empirics, we move a step closer to cracking this code.

The Decoding Obesity podcast will help you develop a deeper understanding of this disease, develop a healthy relationship with nutrition, promote self-care, and emote a new confidence of “Yes, I can do it!”
