Let's Talk About Weight Loss With Dr. Doriana Parkin
What do you truly want in life? To be strong, healthy, and capable of not just caring for yourself but also for those around you, right? This week, I had an eye-opening conversation with the incredible Dr. Doriana Parkin. We discussed the essence of weight loss and its connection to self-care, debunking the myth that it's all about spa days and pampering (though those are lovely too). Dr. Doriana Parkin is a working mom of 3 and knows what it feels like to be overwhelmed & exhausted. To have no time for yourself. To be too busy to fit exercise into her day when juggling work, extracurricular activities, cooking and taking care of family members. She struggled with weight and body issues as a teen, dieting and hating  how she looked until she realized that she needed to eat in a way that wasn't overly restrictive, and that her self worth wasn't related to her weight.We talked about two common misconceptions when it comes to weight loss. One is that weight loss starts in the gym. It doesn't, weight loss starts in the kitchen! The second is that in order to lose weight, you have to starve yourself. You don't! what you need to learn is how to eat more food volume for fewer calories.For 15 years in the medical field, Dr. Doriana counselled patients on how to make healthy decisions, and now she's focused on helping as many busy women as possible take back control of their lives and health.Her goal is to give women the empowerment they’ve been lacking so they feel confident making food choices, figuring out how to easily incorporate fitness and self-care into their daily life.Dr. Doriana can be found at drdoriana, on IG, Facebook, Linked In and TikTokHer website is www.smplyfitwellness.comConnect with Dr. Daniela Steyn:Website: https://www.wellnessmdhealth.comEmail: info@wellnessmdhealth.com#SelfCareJourney #HealthyChoices #EmpowerWomen #StrongAndCapable#WellnessGoals #MindBodyBalance #FitnessMotivation #NutritionTips #BodyPositivity #HealthIsWealth #WeightLossMyths #KitchenOverGym#FoodVolume #BusyLifeBalance #WorkingMomLife #DailySelfCare #HolisticHealth #HealthyHabits #LifeBalance #StrongWomen #MindfulEating #WellnessJourney #FitnessForLife #BodyConfidence #DrDorianaInspires

In this episode, we'll be discussing all things lifestyle medicine, from how to make small changes that can have a big impact on your health, to tips for staying motivated and accountable. Dr. Amanda Marrone has been a family physician in the Niagara region in Ontario for almost 18 years, after completing both her medical and residency training at McMaster.  She practiced rural family medicine at the Smithville Family Health team from 2004 – 2020 where she included hospital in-patient care, low risk obstetrics, surgical assisting and palliative care in her scope of practice.   She is an Associate Clinical Professor at the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine,  and enjoys teaching both undergraduate and post-graduate trainees.  In July 2020 Dr. Marrone made the decision to transition away from her  busy full-time family practice and currently fills her professional time with surgical assisting, teaching and pursuing her dream of practicing lifestyle medicine full time.    In December 2021, Amanda completed the rigorous process of becoming officially Board Certified in Lifestyle Medicine through the American College of Lifestyle Medicine.  Dr. Marrone believes that lifestyle-based patient education is medicine's "missing link", and it has the potential to change the face of chronic disease in Canada. She is the creator of the "Welcome Home! Lifestyle Medicine Program", a 12 week group-based patient education program which focuses on the six pillars of lifestyle medicine:  nutrition, physical activity, stress management, substance avoidance, sleep hygiene and social interconnectedness.  She is excited to launch this program virtually by early 2023.You can follow Dr. Marrone on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lifestyle_dr_amanda/Follow Wellness MD here Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/wellnessmdhealth/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WellnessmdhealthLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/wellnessmdhealthTwitter: https://twitter.com/DrDanielaSteynPinterest: https://pin.it/7hlHwPl For more health tips and guidance, sign up for our newsletter: https://www.wellnessmdhealth.com/ *Legal Disclaimer: This podcast is intended for educational purposes only.

Q&A with Health Coach Cecilia Lanier: Health benefits of having a coach.
Health and wellness coaches are the backbone of functional medicine!We all know that just having a prescription or treatment plan does not necessarily mean you will consider the cause of your symptoms. It will also not force you to make any changes necessary to improve your overall wellness. In this podcast, Dr. Daniela Steyn talks with Cecilia Lanier, A professional Teacher and Health Coach with the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy. Cecilia explains what a health coach does and why we all need one. Health coaches are specialists in behaviour change. They help people change when change is hard. Coaching is a partnership between experts. Coaches’ expertise is in behaviour change, and they believe the clients are experts in themselves and their own experience. The relationship is formed within an atmosphere of compassion, unconditional acceptance, and empowerment. The sessions are client-led and coach-supported.Health coaching is, however, not for everyone as:Sometimes people aren’t ready to change in one area, so coaches support them wherever they are on this readiness spectrum. Some people are just thinking about it, sitting on the fence. Others might resist change and may only seek a coach because it’s been suggested by a doctor or a friend or loved one.Others know they need to change, are sure they want to change, and yet are discouraged because they have tried so many times and cannot succeed or sustain the change. So, they remain stuck.Or maybe they don’t know how to start the change or how to maintain it. It’s one thing to get a food plan or a directive for eliminating stress, but those plans, or directions don’t work if we don’t work them.People seek coaches for many reasons, but burnout is one of the main reasons. Health and wellness coaches primarily meet people whose challenges are in one or more of these five areas:Food/nutritionMovement/exerciseSleep/rest, Stress managementRelationships However, coaches will also address a person’s emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual realities as it’s hard to separate the person into parts. A holistic view of the person is the best approach.Listen to our podcast today to learn how Cecilia went through burnout and got her life back on track by implementing all the strategies she teaches as a health and wellness coach. *Legal Disclaimer: This podcast is intended for educational purposes only.
