Rebuild Your Health: Optimize Your Health and Lose Weight!

A Diagnosis is Not Your Destiny


Dr. Robert Zembroski Notable Quotes

“In my experience, clinically, until people hit those points or have those pains, then it’s difficult for them to change…Anything about body fat composition changes, weight loss, improving your body if there’s a chronic illness, you have to set the stage in your mind.”
Dr. Robert Zembroski

“If you look at any of the popular diets, what’s the common theme? Don’t eat crap, don’t get rid of carbs, don’t eat white, refined sugars, don’t eat processed food. Really, if you boil it down, you’re just getting rid of gluten, dairy, white sugars, processed food. I guess we can put a label on it, but I don’t want to put a labels and identities on people and their food styles or what they eat because then it creates an identity for them. I just tell people, like I said in my book, be a varietarian. Eat a whole variety of foods, don’t eat the foods that cause health issues.”
Dr. Robert Zembroski

“Eat when the sun is out, not when the moon is out.”
Dr. Robert Zembroski


Episode Summary

Let’s face it, most people don’t particularly put their health on the forefront of their minds and only start paying attention when they receive diagnoses of chronic diseases or even cancers. When that happens, some people despair. But they don’t have to. A diagnosis isn’t a life sentence, it’s a chance to start the process of rebuilding health.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to author, speaker, chiropractic practitioner, and cancer victor, Dr. Robert Zembroski, to walk us through his inspiring journey and how he took the reins of his health and began rebuilding his body back into health.
