This podcast with me (April), my daughter Alia, and best-selling author of The Calorie Myth, Jonathan Bailor, is an honest interview regarding calorie-counting, childhood obesity, and the emotional costs of being overweight.
But we’re not just here to talk about the problems–we’re here to discuss the solutions.
As you listen, you’ll hear Jonathan interview Alia (age 15) about her experience losing more than 20 pounds and 9 inches around her waist by “going SANE” (SANE is an acronym to describe the kinds of foods most likely to prevent obesity and diabetes). Along the way, Alia and I share our stories and our hearts, and talk about what’s really going on in the minds of children–and adults–who want to lose weight.
Our story (further detailed in the post, How I Stopped Starving Myself–and My Daughter) is one that I am positive will resonate with many people around the world–because although we sometimes feel isolated when we’re struggling with weight loss, this is one of the most common problems facing our society (though it doesn’t have to be).
If you’ve ever counted calories and diligently exercised without seeing results, struggled with body image issues, felt concerned about developing diabetes, or lacked confidence because of the size of your body, you are not alone.
And, I might add, you need to listen to this podcast.
