And the thing is is that drug hasn't been out long enough to see what's done long term long term to somebody trying to use it to lose weight but weight loss is that trigger word yeah that it you know exudes so many emotions for so many people has so many traumas cuses cancer hell our country club uses high fructose corn syrup to kill.
Weeds how is that good for our body we're eating Clarity what if we can gain balance in our life what if we can gain a sex life what if we can have all of those gains and I won't call it's it's a lifestyle it's a lifestyle damn it it's what it is it's.
a hey everybody body welcome back to the prime podcast I am your host Dr Skip whis and I am with the fabulous Dr Julie whis today Dr Julie how are you doing you look fantastic I'm good it's nice to see that we coordinated our wardrobes slightly today again as usual except for you've got your leopard on you have.
Trademark cheetah you have cheetah print on every day there is at least something cheetah that I have on you yeah I find that hilarious you know what I was talking to to m Taylor a few weeks back when we were in Nashville at the Michael Chandler Mastermind and I asked her the same thing and she's a leopard lady as well and she's like just because you.
Don't see it on the outside doesn't mean that it's somewhere else agreed agreed and most of the time it's actually you've got leopard socks that you wear as well socks or my nails or earrings yep and other things right yep so today today I wanted to talk to you about weight loss and I wanted to take a little bit different perspective on.
Weight loss because I feel this is the time of year where people start thinking about the necessity of nutrition for their body resolutions well they have their resolutions which are usually crap um because they just don't have accountability and discipline to make things happen and I think that a lot of it.
Comes from the psychology of weight loss because most people know that when you that when you lose weight there is a multiple amount of factors there's an old school way of losing weight where it was calories in versus calories out are you taking are you expending more calories than what you're taking in in your diet therefore you will lose weight.
Now you will lose muscle mass and everything else after that but there's a true psychology to weight loss in the form of support and I wanted to talk about the support of weight loss today are you okay with that I'm okay and as you're saying it though I'm I'm almost thinking of like we talk about a a world of abundance and positivity and so I.
Think people get stuck on weight loss and when they hear that word it means that it's like work and it's hard and we going to have to lose something well how about we have health gains kind of like going to the dentist like they know it's a necessity but they they're scared of it because they know the trial and turmoil it's going to take to get to.
Where they want to be but instead of like having to lose something what if we can gain Clarity what if we can gain balance in our life what if we can gain a sex life what if we can gain uh clearer thoughts you know more energy what if we can have all of those gains and start thinking of it that way rather than having to like lose something yeah.
I think it's that that lack mentality with weight loss versus Health gain and versus lifestyle change modification gaining a LIF style that actually will improve your health versus taking something away or having that negative deductive reasoning to it and I wanted to hit on something that I found very interesting is that people generally.
Have this hard connotation or negative connotation with weight loss but it's very hard for people to get you to support the support you need in your weight loss Journey or in your health change Journey well I think some people already set themselves up to fail because they don't tell the other person that hey I'm I'm going to do this or I'm.
Going to start a gym membership I'm going to go to the gym or right so maybe inside our head we set these Milestones of these resolutions that we want to do but we haven't told anybody else so then nobody else can hold us accountable because we ultimately know we're going to fail ourselves yeah and you let yourself down right so we can get into.
That whole thing about negative selft talk and lying to yourself and then which we've talked about uh two episodes previous to this with with conversations we have in ourselves and communication but we've talked about weight loss in the past past too but I think the the thought process of is what I'm really trying to get at is when you lose weight.
People get Negative behind it where when you start losing some weight people are in your are supporting you they're flat out supporting you they're happy but as soon as you start losing a large amount of weight they get super worried about you where oh my gosh and we've all heard these we've all heard these saying and I know you have too like you're wasting.
Away you're falling apart you're not eating enough are you sick do you have cancer um all those negative things like how come you're not eating as much as you used to or or it's even of like oh they're detoxing again oh you have to have that special diet like get protein fruit and vegetables that's not special that's how we should eat oh my God we.
Get that so much it's it's uncanny guys it's it's like oh you're you're you're back on your you're back on your dieting it or you're back on your special nutrition thing and I won't call it's it's a lifestyle it's a lifestyle damn it it's what it is it's a commitment and yes I would say that you and I have about two months out of the Year where.
We don't eat as healthy as we do the other 10 months and that's generally November and December because we just we're surrounded by different food choices and some of those choices do give into the the I don't know the the sugar Cravings the kind of letting your guard down kind of giving into things you know aren't good for your body and.
It's a general consensus that if you lose if you if you stop consuming sugar you're going to lose weight oh absolutely Sugar's addicting yes and a lot of people are addicted to these substances and you know people shouldn't feel bad for you for losing weight I think that's that's a big thing because nobody ever says anything to you when.
You're gaining weight I think it's I think part of it depending on who it's coming from is jealousy yeah right like they can be like oh you look that certain way and I look better than you right that's the outward feature like that's the physical aspect of of who we are and sometimes it's easier to you know like the person.
When maybe you're the better looking person in that group oh my God my mind just went yeah okay but you know when somebody starts to like oh yeah you're going to you're going to you know do this diet plan or you want to you know do this and you want to lose 10 or 15 pounds and you want to cheer for that person but then ultimately you're like.
Oh gosh if they start to look better then I need to do something for my life so I look better yeah and they feel guilty and then they shed their guilt back on you and I like this quote we've heard it from I'm G to probably destroy it but the context of this quote is this anybody that has done anything and achieved anything in their life will not.
Talk negatively about you you in your achievements but those that haven't achieved what you have achieved or haven't worked to achieve what you're trying to do will talk negative because they don't know what it takes They Don't Know What It Takes or they're jealous because they didn't put it in in the first place so those of you out there.
That are on a health change Journey that are actually changing your health for the better support one another support each other but get the support of your spouse get the support of your partners because what I find hilarious is like so like my grandma for example my grandma Ruth we got together over Christmas and she looked right at me and she said.
Skippy you look like you're wasting away and I looked at Grandma and I said Grandma I've been this weight this size for two and a half years and haven't changed I may fluctuate 15 pounds up and down from 195 to 210 but I've stayed that way now for the last two years to two and a half years and I said Grandma I haven't changed I haven't changed at.
All you just remember I out of shape super unhealthy skip that's what you remember you remember that form of Skippy that just kind of ate any sugar product that got put in front of him um that like to go after soda pop and things like that but it's those unhealthy choices and habits that were instilled in me when I was a kid that it.
Was okay to do that kind of stuff that then became the normal for everybody to see so I would say family sometimes is sometimes the hardest critic so your grandma said that and I think think when family sees you all the time looking a certain way when you start to change at first they're thinking oh you're going to change too much and you're not going.
To you know want us anymore you're not going to love us anymore so I think of you know with with family of just letting know like no this is the reason why I'm doing this I'm doing this to be healthier for me we're doing this to be healthy for for our kids in the profession that we do we're doing this to be able to be more congruent with the.
People that we are that we are teaching that we're talking to every day um so I think Health just means things differently for everybody but weight loss is that trigger word yeah that it you know exudes so many emotions for so many people has so many traumas that affect people differently yeah I think that it's it's the losing thing I think.
That's the biggest thing behind it because every time people get on a weight loss Journey or a health change Journey they actually feel really good and it's almost like that honeymoon phase that once they're through usually it's about 10 days into nutrition change that they have a tough time and then after 10 days Things become really easy.
But then it seems like that's where they lose their support because then they're starting to see the changes but then they're their spouse or whoever it is they didn't have the they didn't have the right people set up to be their cheerleaders for them of when they truly want like when they're being successful yeah and that's what I think.
Is is a big thing because what what I wish people would do is is pull you aside and say if you are being unhealthy hey how can I help you and support you to get you from being unhealthy you know because like I said earlier like people never say anything to you when you gain weight right people never say anything to you when they see you making bad.
Nutritional decisions maybe something that actually could be detrimental to your health or you know not instead of supporting you when instead of negatively supporting you when you're losing weight and saying you know you're wasting away You're call but when you gain weight and gain.
And start destroying your andec and negatively hting your body they don't step in to help support you well I think like that's where so like we never in you know 15 years like we've had different people come in to to our office different Pharmaceuticals differentl marketing things of all selling us all these potions and tonics.
And smoothies and all of these things to do for weight loss and like we have a we have a strong line of the things and the people that we do and we don't work with yep um so it was really simple like we weren't congruent with many of those things no and that now that we have something within our office and yeah the side effect is weight loss yes but it is.
Getting healthy positive side effect not the side effect of other things that are on the market correct so it like this type of Health gains is because we are getting rid of the inflammation within our body that's a big thing in changing insulin resistance absolutely which I think people don't quite get that's why.
Weight loss doesn't actually work well diets because you don't change your lifestyle you don't change your lifestyle and you don't actually change the chemical and physiological processes that allow you to be more healthy and get out of a super stressed hyper fasting State because you're not consuming the nutrition you're designed.
To consume which then puts your body in a state of fasting and then puts it in a state of stress because it's not getting in the nutrition long-term good nutrition that it needs to function instead it gets in short nutritional gains that then put it in this state of fight ORF flight and then completely destroys your pancreas and your pancreas.
For those of you out there that want just a little bit of biology you well your pancreas is what secretes insulin and Insulin allows your body then to process sugar but if you are constantly consuming large amounts of sugar you start burning out the insulin producing bodies in your pancreas hence type two diabetes insulin takes the sugar puts it.
To the liver and then the liver metabolizes it and breaks it down that's as one1 as we're going to get with it but if I'm constantly wearing it out I become what's known as insulin resistant and that's not okay because now your body can't lose weight so we need to actually reduce the the amounts of super high sugary Foods we're putting.
Them in our body and replacing them with really good protein not over abundance of protein but protein fruits and vegetabl but I think where people get lost is like you you're saying sugar sugar sugar well I don't eat sugar like I don't have candy bars I don't drink soda which is great great but but I think that's the connotation that people.
Will think well why am I you know why do I have these concerns I don't consume those things but it's also the simple sugars it's the refined sugars it's your carbo hydrates it's your starches those things are what break down and that is like sugar is the addiction but so is all of the white stuff that is in our diet yes and I had this this is funny.
Let's go back years ago I was at a football game with one of our good friends Devon rising and it was a Saints game Packers Saints and we won that game on a field goal at the end but I remember the argument this lady tried to get on me in the parking lot at Lambo field I grabbed an apple out of my backpack as everybody else is consuming.
Alcohol eating crap putting brownies down and she's like how is that Sugar she is a what she would call she's an endocrinologist or she I don't know what the hell her degree was in but it was in she thought she's a doctor and she goes I said there's a difference in sugars here and she goes how is that any different your liver knows no difference.
From GL from glucose to glucose I'm like yeah it does it actually knows the direct difference I'm not putting in a synthetic sugar into my body I'm not putting in high fructose corn syrup Rel at stuff that causes cancer hell our country club uses high fructose corn syrup to kill weeds how is that good for our body.
We're eating it it's and we're and we're consuming it pounds of it a day and it's just not okay so and she was really upset with me because she was pissed because I wasn't drinking consuming alcohol and eating brownies and and and hamburgers St I think that just brings to light like it wasn't to make her feel bad no but it.
But it brings to light that you know a doctor is a doctor but we all have our limits yeah right we have our limitations so even if when that is her specialty if she doesn't quite understand the entire biomechanical breakdown it's an injustice to the things that she's teaching her patients yeah those biophysiological barriers and.
Breakdowns that I mean to tell to literally look at me and say your body knows no difference yet it does because high fructose corn syrup has been heavily linked to cancer heavily linked and we have seen a massive rise in cancer over the last 50 years as high fructose current syrup is being put in everything with dies and all the other.
AD the world that we live in right it's easier to stay healthy because then we can give something to make somebody feel better which elicits others easier to stay unhealthy to stay unhealthy yeah and when there when there can be a solution to somebody feeling good yeah it might take some work but when you have 98% of of the world that is.
Unhealthy that doesn't want to see you healthy it's much easier to fall into that crowd well pills potions things like this and then they come up with drugs like o word right not the good o word the bad o word and that o word affects the way the body metabolizes sugars and things things in small bursts are okay it's when we become addictive.
And we overuse them and it's the constant like then we need those things if something has to be used within that matter then it's usually not a good thing well if you have to chemically trick your body into losing weight there's a serious issue there now there's room for that drug and what I'm going to say here might be controversial.
There is room I still I think that drug is probably better than doing a a lapri bypass and lap banding and doing an actual gastric bypass surgery to change the way your stomach fits but we need to understand the limitations and we need to truly used for and your body will ultimately trump it it will beat the chemical it always does and then it.
Leads to rebound issues and the thing is is that drug hasn't been out long enough to see what's done long term long term to somebody trying to use it to lose weight well the best way that that can be used is okay we're going to use it to jump start let's lose the weight but then we come back to we're not going to stay on weight loss the entire time we.
Have to have that lifestyle change we need to have healthy habits in place while we are doing this so that we can be successful the entire time right so if you're going to do this clear really like you want to lose weight or maybe you're overweight and we need the assistance great let's do that but it's a disservice of anybody that is.
Recommending that or giving that if they're not setting that person up then with here's the plan these are the things that we need to do while we're doing this and these are the things that we need to do after we're done with this because otherwise it's just going to be that vicious cycle and it's just like oh I did that diet it didn't work oh I did.
That one too that didn't work it's all the things that didn't work because you didn't have a game you you didn't have a plan for what you wanted to you know truly have happened and you didn't set yourself up to win well do you have do you have a plan for your health and we see that all the time in Chiropractic as well I mean we're chiropractors like.
This is what we do we're family practice pediatric chiropractors and we will we will hear patients that will say Chiropractic didn't work for me Chiropractic didn't work for my kid Chiropractic didn't do this well what was the plan you were put on everything takes time as well everything takes time your body takes time to heal it takes.
Time time to lose weight it takes time to change nutrition to your body it takes time to change composition but the one thing that doesn't change is how fast that nervous system talks and I'm not going to geek out on Chiropractic but holy smokes it's the fastest moving thing on earth and it never changes as long as you have the communication there.
But chronic stress will lead to a change in that communication absolutely and then Health changes Health goes on hill and then we start fighting for our lives instead of thriving for our life which is not okay now in dovetailing off of this we're going to close this up in just a minute I think that we have a lot of parents that listen to this I know we.
Do and how can they help this journey with their children because we can get into Pediatric and Adolescent obesity which I think would be an excellent conversation for next podcast but how can parents start this simple Journey with their children because we've done that with our kids well I think it's like our kids are.
Super smart like they're going to they mirror everything that you do they watch everything that you do say the things that you do so okay that's like that's a that's the check right like so Mom Dad what are you eating what are you drinking what are your healthy habits well I think that is the key right away and sometimes you can listen to your.
Kids and hear what they have to say and they're actually concerned about you like I go earlier in January when Breen's like Hey Dad we should start working out because he's not seeing Dad working out but he wants to so I have to work on that habit with him and instill those Payton completely changed your nutrition.
In the morning the girl eats she does fullon she doesn't do smoothies in the morning which we can go on and on about smoothies and sugar intake in the morning but she does protein in the morning and she does it in the form of Standard Process protein if you guys W we'll put a link below in that if you guys want any information on that we can.
Help you there um but also she said her day up and if you look at some of the research with consuming protein it's actually the best to consume it in the morning well especially so if you if you have a a schooler or a high schooler right that's like if you think of like how classes are set up traditionally those hard heavy like brain like those.
Thinking classes are typically the first thing in the morning and they're done that way because you know the child should be fresh the child you know should be should be awake at that point but that is all the understanding that okay there should have been a healthy breakfast there should have been protein consumed by the when we get to the end.
Of the day that's usually like when the creatives kind of start or the gyms right because we've now processed all of that protein that we've had you know brain starts to kind of get depleted unless we're constantly filling that up that's why classes are planned out that way so like planning a child's lunch that breakfast is important but what are.
The things like the the nuts the seeds what can we put within the child's lunch MH um to give them a good found jump start in the morning versus heavy sugary things in the morning cereals well and you mentioned that about classes and we can we can have that would be another great podcast conversation is teaching our children how to learn but classes.
Are set up that way but our nutrition doesn't fit that it doesn't fit that because yes the harder subjects should be in the morning when our brain is fresh and I've seen schools where it's opposite where they put hard subjects in the afternoon which children should be out moving in the afternoon they should be out changing that energy load and.
Also they should be getting a very nutritious lunch to help them process into the next phase of their day which doesn't happen either or they're eating lunch at 11:30 in the morning uh 10:30 10:30 11:00 depending on the size of the school that your child goes to and that completely changes the nutritional balance at well I got a I had a girl in.
The other day she deals with a lot of chronic migraines young girl she's been under our care for years and all of a sudden she's starting to develop headaches in the last six months and I'm just I'm just like okay biggest thing to me is is now that you've told me about this because they hadn't said anything about her health at that point.
They hadn't mentioned it I assumed everything was going really really well and then so and so she's been getting headaches well how often she's been getting them for a few months now and come to find out since September well school started okay when are we getting our headaches four o'clock in the afternoon when did she lunch.
11:15 yeah it's a long time to go without feeding your body the sugars The Good Foods the proteins the building blocks of what it needs to survive exactly and if we don't do it correctly in those stages or have those snacks built in for children as well because then they do have their gym classes in the afternoon and then they're expending.
All of that energy stores that they put in at 11 11:30 it may seem like they come home with all of the energy in the world but it's a different it's a different type that's a total different conversation so weight loss support is huge weight gain um Health gains are huge and that should be what it's called is I'm gaining health for myself again.
And having good support in there and having a supportive spouse having a supportive partner that's there for you can do the journey with you and I would say one challenge to everybody out there listening is do it as a family do it with the people around you that's that's what I would say because the the connotation is usually oh you're doing.
That that food stuff again I was like what do you mean eating eating healthy meals do you mean um but like we've always been one that like we will not make a different meal for a children like they always try what we have to eat if they don't like it then they'll make a sandwich but like when we go and we start to like you know change our.
Nutrition we see in the kids as well so when you are eating whole food nutrition that just means like really good nutritious Foods yep we don't you don't need to make separate meals because ultimately their palette should be palatable to like those things that's a concern that if a child is like well yeah they don't like that texture they.
Don't like that that taste then we have a lot of things to start fixing for that child because things aren't registering how they should be so even when they're consuming that food even if it is the sugar it's not getting and it's not feeding the body the way that it should so dovetail in the next week then next week guys we're going to come in here.
And we're going to talk about nutritional changes for our children and what we can be doing and how we can help fight this epidemic of childhood overweight obesity and not being able to process their sugars properly so we can help build a very very strong healthy generation below us so we don't have to worry as much because let's be honest.
Our nutritional habits that we have instilled in ourselves from our relatives and the people that grew up that trained us we instill those in our children but you can be the ones that actually break that cycle man we could go into epigenetics yes we can and I think we're GNA find that next we're eating for our.
Grandchildren yeah eat you are eating for your grandchildren you are and that's a whole different ball game in an amazing conversation but gaining health for yourself you need support you need mental and physical support and we're here for you so reach out to us if you have any questions out there moms and dads for the prime podcast here and let.
Us know if we can help you click the links below if you need any questions about standard process or anything out there let us know always great to talk to you guys take care thank you so much for tuning in anything else Dr Julie that's it all right everybody have a great week we'll talk to you next week bye.
