Episode 045: Set Point Weight, Dieting and Obesity.


If we all have a natural set point weight, then why are some people obese? What about BMI, doesn’t that tell us where everyone’s weight should fall based on height? What is the truth about set point theory, how does it apply to dieting, weight regain and eating disorders.

In this episode I explore the idea of a natural genetic blueprint of weight, and how you know you are there. Dieting, and obesity have muddied the waters, but there is a place we all feel and function optimally. Can we change it, sure…but to what end?
