One of the most daunting things about trying to lose weight or gain muscle is that it’s a long-term commitment. If you want to have and keep a new kind of body, you have to live a new kind of life.

Whether you know it or not, you have food sensitivities. How can I be so sure?

One of the biggest barriers to good nutrition is…all the information about what constitutes good nutrition! Patients come into my office all the time expressing how confused they are by the sheer volume of information about nutrition out there, much of it contradictory: “Eat fat!” vs. “Don’t eat fat!” “Eat carbs!” vs. “Carbs are bad for you!” “Be vegan!” vs. “Veganism will mess up your body!” Unfortunately, a typical response to this feeling of being overwhelmed is just giving up. If there’s too much information, and if the advice is all over the place, what’s the use of following any of it?

‘Tis the Season To Be Stuffed: How To Deal with Overeating on the Holidays People overeat on holidays for many reasons: out of a sense of comfort, tradition, habit, and, of course, because holiday food tastes so good! Unfortunately, while our bodies can distinguish between fats, carbs, and proteins, they don’t have an in-built control mechanism to tell us to stop eating, other than the discomfort of feeling full. By the time you’ve undone the top button of your pants to make room for your newly-expanded holiday belly, it’s too late. Too much food in your belly means your gastric juices won’t be able to digest fast enough. When that happens, the food you ate starts to ferment and rot, which creates gas, acid reflux, and pain.
