14: Challenging the Obesity Dogma


Hello everyone and welcome to the launch of my newest podcast. This year, 2018, I have committed to a one-year course to become a certified Health Coach. The podcast, with episodes released weekly, will cover the material we are learning, my own personal growth, and hopefully some other students on as guests.

Please let me know what you think of the podcast or if you are also interested in becoming a Health Coach!

This week's lesson, Module 12, the importance of walking my talk as a health coach. Guest speaker, Gary Taubes challenges the current understanding of the causes of obesity. We also learn about the concepts of volumetrics, metabolic type, calorie density and the usefulness of traditional weight and BMI measurements as a measure of health.
