The Causes Of Resistance To Weight Loss with Dr. Casey Means

This episode is brought to you by Cozy Earth, BiOptimizers, and InsideTracker.

For decades, I’ve been on a mission to help my patients understand that weight loss is not about “calories in, calories out”. There are a multitude of factors that play into how our body makes, stores, and burns fat and the actual amount of calories we eat is one small drop in the bucket of our complex biology. Today, I’m excited to talk with Dr. Casey Means about the main drivers people face when struggling to lose weight and what we can do about them. 

Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer, and Co-founder of metabolic health company Levels, an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, and a Lecturer at Stanford University. Her mission is to maximize human potential and reverse the epidemic of preventable chronic disease by empowering individuals with tools that can facilitate a deep understanding of our bodies and inform personalized and sustainable dietary and lifestyle choices. Dr. Means’ perspective has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Men's Health, Forbes, Business Insider, Techcrunch, Entrepreneur Magazine, Metabolism, Endocrine Today, and more.
