Show Notes

Do you struggle to lose weight (and keep it off) whilst working 24/7?  If so, then you’re going to want to tune into today’s episode with Registered Nurse and Functional Nutrition Practitioner Patti Telford, who is joining us all the way from Vancouver in Canada.

As a shift working nurse, Patti spent her entire adult life battling with her weight.  In her words she’s been on “over 100 diets” so is MORE than qualified to be talking to us about this topic today!

Given Patti received zero training or support throughout her entire career on how to eat healthy whilst working shift work (something I hear from almost every person who has ever worked shift work) – weight gain and poor health was inevitable.

Fast forward to 2018, Patti’s struggles with her own weight ultimately became the catalyst for the development of her sustained weight loss program called Deeper Hunger, which focuses on teaching her clients to nourish their bodies in a holistic way.  In other words it addresses 3 key areas – body, mind and soul.

What you’re going to learn in this podcast:

  • Why diets don’t work
  • Why there’s no quick fix when it comes to sustained weight loss.  In other words, it’s not about losing “X” amount in “X” days!
  • Why its not all about the food, and lack of willpower
  • How certain “triggers” can contribute to weight gain
  • The importance of self care for sustained weight loss, and much much more!
