That’s it. There must be something wrong with my hormones.

Does that thought sound familiar?

When you are doing all the things you are supposed to do-

– and STILL you have more body fat than seems reasonable given that effort?

And you think

  • There’s got to be something going on with my thyroid
  • Or maybe my adrenals are shot…
  • Or maybe this has something to do with menopause?

OK stop.

Before you go to a bunch of appointments and get a bunch of blood work done –



This is me talking to Dr. Sadaf Jeelani, one of the members of my MFA program who happens to be an Endocrinologist.

She and I were starting to notice that there is a LOT of misinformation about hormones and how they affect your weight (especially as we get older).

In this interview, Dr. Jeelani gives you the truth about:

  • What hormonal conditions make it hard to lose weight and what to do about it.
  • What you can do to support your thyroid
  • Whether keto and intermittent fasting work
  • What you need to do after menopause to lose weight
  • What happens to your metabolism after you lose a significant amount of weight.

I’m going to warn you right now, dude –

Some of the facts in this interview might make you uncomfortable.

The truth about hormones and weight is very different than what the diet/wellness industry is pushing right now.

But if you have ever wondered ‘maybe there’s something wrong with my hormones’ –

– you owe it to yourself to listen to this ^^.
