Lose Weight Without the Exercise: Switch to Healthy Eating Habits!

It’s Not Giving Up Everything: It’s About Reducing


David Medansky Notable Quotes

“Once I’ve lost the weight, I’m not a purist by any stretch. So, I’ll have a piece of chocolate cake, but what I used to eat in one sitting will now last me five days. If I wanted a piece of pecan pie, I’ll have a sliver as a taste instead of a whole slice. So, I’m not saying you have to give up everything. I’m just saying, reduce it.”
David Medansky


Episode Summary

When we first think of going on a journey to weight loss, a lot of times, we find excuses—I’ll do it tomorrow, or I have no time for it, or that people gain back the weight they lose, anyway, so why bother? We need to arrive at a point where we stop making excuses and start taking our health into our own hands.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to lawyer, author, and health coach David Medansky to share his weight loss journey as well as some practical advice we can start doing to start our own weight loss journeys.
