Beyond The Stethoscope

Aug 17, 2020

Favorite quotes of the episode: “Let go of perfectionism, mix it up, make it work for you, take full advantage of anything that is going to cut down your time and stress.”

“For me, success is about having a sense that I’m pushing myself and I’m growing, that I’m not shying away from things that I’m scared of.”

“Being mindful about our food.  In its simplest form, being mindful means being aware of when we are hungry and honoring our hunger when we can. Being mindful when you are starting to get full, being mindful when you are full, and then stopping eating at that time and hopefully having satiety because you’ve eaten something that you really like.”

“Yo-yo dieting is what can disrupt your internal hunger regulatory system.”

“Intuitive eating is recognizing hunger-fullness-satiety.”
