The Truth About Weight Loss With Guest Brannon Gilliam
Do you find yourself struggling with managing your weight, trying countless methods to shed those extra pounds without success? Has the age-old advice, ‘Just eat less and move more,’ left you feeling frustrated and at a loss? Join Dr. Jamie Gilliam and her husband, Brannon Gilliam, on an eye-opening journey in this episode titled ‘The Truth About Weight Loss,’ where they unravel the complexities surrounding weight management, dispelling common misconceptions.
Dr. Jamie and Brannon are experts in the fitness industry with decades of experience and once held the belief that exercise and nutrition were the sole keys to weight management. This viewpoint aligns with what fitness certifications and related degree programs often emphasize, which is why the majority of fitness trainers believe that the primary reason a client doesn’t lose weight despite applying exercise and nutrition protocols is due to a lack of effort. After facing personal challenges with weight management due to health conditions and physical limitations, Dr. Jamie and Brannon sought additional education about weight management complexities, leading to a change in their perspectives.
Their experiences and education have illuminated a more intricate truth: the human body is far more complex than the simplistic exercise-and-diet narrative suggests. They recognize the myriad factors at play, and they invite you to join their discussion. Dr. Jamie and Brannon will shed light on health conditions and medications impacting body weight, the role of quality nutrition and physical activity, the important of stress and sleep management, the mind body connection, navigating prevalent misinformation online and societal pressures and stigmas connected to body image and weight.
Throughout the discussion, Dr. Jamie and Brannon offer invaluable insights into why managing weight can be challenging and provide actionable steps you can take to address these struggles. You don’t have to struggle with your weight and feel like crap. You don’t have to feel like a failure. By understanding your body and adopting an approach tailored to your individual needs, you can look and feel your best.
