Weight Loss Expert, Dr. Adrienne Youdim, Shares Secrets to Weight Loss You Don’t Already Know, and How to (Finally) Achieve Body Acceptance

Ep. 6

Do you feel like you’ve tried “everything” and just can’t lose weight? Are you struggling to feel confident in your body, or do you feel like you’ll love yourself only when you lose those 10 pounds or get six-pack abs? On today’s episode, Josie sits down with Dr. Adrienne Youdim to put an end to the confusion and toxicity around weight loss for women. Dr. Youdim served as medical director of the Cedars-Sinai Weight Loss Center before opening her own weight loss practice in Beverly Hills. We’ll be discussing why weight loss feels so hard (and how to make it easier), why loving yourself has to come before losing weight, and how to get out of the toxic cycle of diet culture once and for all.
