Let's Talk About Weight Loss With Dr. Doriana Parkin

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.
