Obesity is a problem of epidemic proportions. It costs us billions each year. And the problem is rapidly worsening.

When I was at my heaviest, I estimate I had a BMI of at least 42 putting me in the morbidly obese category. On today’s podcast I share my thoughts about obesity and how it’s a problem created by the modern world in which we live. I talk about how I managed to let go of my shame about being obese and not figuring out how to lose weight for life and how that was an important part of my weight loss journey. And I give my perspective on the body positivity movement.
