On Being Sensitive

Do you think you’re a sensitive person?We’re conditioned to think that it’s bad to be sensitive.

Using Delegation to Improve Your Life

What could you be delegating to make your life easier?I want you to really consider this question as you listen to this episode of Weight Loss for Busy Physicians. I think when we have so much going on in our busy lives, we forget that we could ask for help with some of it. Yes, it will cost you to hire help, but how much is your time and well-being worth to you? When you look into it, a lot of the time you’ll find that hiring help pays for itself pretty quickly and becomes invaluable. So, how do you know if hiring someone is the right move for you? What role should you hire someone in? Where do you get started? I’m answering all these questions and more in this episode. Topics covered in this episode include:How to know what to delegate Things you can delegate that you might not have consideredDeciding whether to hire a virtual assistant or someone in personTune in

Getting Started With Self-Compassion

Do you struggle to treat yourself with compassion?Self-compassion is a hidden gem in the world of well-being and mental health. A lot of people know about it but not so many people know how to practice it. Sometimes we even start to beat ourselves up for not practicing it, which is totally counterproductive! So how do we change?My goal for this episode of Weight Loss for Busy Physicians is to not only teach you how to start being more compassionate towards yourself, but also to give you a taste of what’s to come as you start to develop the ability to offer yourself compassion. When you hear the many benefits of self-compassion, I think you’ll be more encouraged to give it a go. Topics covered in this episode include:What self-compassion is and what it’s not The effects of treating yourself with more compassionWhy self-compassion is not selfish Tune in to learn how to introduce the

Honor Your Taste Buds to Lose Weight

What would happen if you stopped forcing yourself to eat food you don’t like?This made a huge difference for me when I was losing weight for the last time and changing my relationship with food. In order to have peace and freedom around food, I had to like the food I was eating. Makes sense, right?There are a lot of reasons you might eat food that doesn’t taste good to you. Maybe as a kid, you had to eat everything on your plate. Maybe everyone’s telling you you need to eat the latest trendy superfood. Maybe you feel like you have to eat the low-fat or low-sugar versions of things even though you don’t like them as much. We’re unpacking it all in this episode of Weight Loss for Busy Physicians, and I’m teaching you how eating only food that tastes good to you will help you lose weight and improve your relationship with food forever. Topics covered in this episode include:The impact of growing up in the

Self-Investment and Leadership with Erin Aquin & Steve Haase, Part 2

Welcome back for Part 2 of our conversation with Erin Aquin and Steve Haase. In this episode, we’re talking about leadership. No one ever really teaches you how to be a good leader, you’re just expected to know how to do it like it’s a skill you’re born with. If you’ve ever found yourself in a leadership role, you know that’s not true. Sure, anyone can be a leader, but that doesn’t mean they’re a good one. That leads us to the question, what does make a good leader? Erin and Steve have answers for you. They’re bringing their experience to the table to walk you through some of the most important leadership skills and how to learn them.Erin Aquin and Steve Haase are the co-founders of Superabound, a coaching company that helps business owners and leaders create a life and business that aligns with their unique vision.

Do you struggle to make self-care a priority in your busy schedule?

Sunday Scaries and Work Dread

If you’re a doctor you can have Sunday Scaries, Monday Scaries, Tuesday Scaries… it goes on and on. Does that sound like your situation? I know it was mine for a while. Let’s break down what’s happening when you get the Sunday Scaries, or work dread, and see if there’s a way you can prevent it. I learned about the concept of Sunday Scaries when I was trying to figure out why I often stayed up way too late, even though I knew it wasn’t good for me. The harsh reality was that I didn’t want to go to sleep because then I’d have to wake up and do the thing I didn’t want to do: work. The good news is, I don’t feel that way anymore! In this episode of Weight Loss for Busy Physicians, I’m sharing some simple but important steps you can take to get rid of that work dread and actually enjoy your whole week.Topics covered in this episode include:What percentage of the population experiences Sunday Scaries How to break

End the Charting Agony

Is charting an agonizing experience for you?Some people might think I’m being dramatic but if you know, you know. Charting can cause a huge amount of stress that feels like it’s never going to end, and that leads many of us to turn to food as a coping mechanism. Here on the Weight Loss for Busy Physicians podcast, we’re all about addressing the root causes of your problems so that you’re not relying on food for emotional support. If charting is a constant thorn in your side like it is for so many doctors, this episode has the information you need to tackle the charting agony and make it a more manageable (and dare I say enjoyable?) task. Topics covered in this episode include:What to do if you’re drowning in your charts Taking control of your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs How to improve your relationship with charting Ways to streamline and simplify your process<p

What to Do When You're Not Eating

What can you fill your time with instead of eating?If you’ve been working on not overeating or emotionally eating and you’ve made some progress, you might notice that you’re not sure how to fill the void that food once filled. This is a great opportunity to reconnect with yourself and the needs you have that you were trying to meet with food. This episode of Weight Loss for Busy Physicians will help you discover what things truly fill you up. Maybe you love sports, reading, drawing, painting, or sewing to name just a few possibilities. A word of caution: when you’re no longer overeating, you want to avoid substituting one activity that creates problems for you with another activity that creates problems for you. Those could look like shopping, scrolling on social media, relying on other substances, or overworking.

Becoming Type A-

I often hear from clients that they are Type A and they have all kinds of questions about how they should handle situations based on their Type A personality. Are you someone who identifies strongly as Type A? If so, I have a bit of a challenge for you. What would happen if you let go of that label, just a little bit?In this episode of Weight Loss for Busy Physicians, I’m exploring where the Type A personality came from, why you might identify so strongly as Type A (or Type B), and why these labels can sometimes start causing problems. If you enjoy being a Type A, don’t worry; I’m not here to tell you that you need to change your whole personality. If it’s working for you, that’s great! I just want to get you thinking about how that label might be forcing you into a box that you don’t always fit into and how to tap into other parts of your personality that could be getting left behind. Topics covered in this episode include

What’s the difference between reflection and rumination? Healthy self-reflection can turn into rumination if you’re not careful, and while self-reflection can be a really productive and helpful tool, rumination tends to be the opposite. In this episode, we’re taking a deeper dive into the differences between reflection and rumination and the characteristics of each.

Capability vs. Capacity

Just because you’re capable of doing something, doesn’t mean you have the capacity to do it. So why do we feel like we have to say yes to things even when we know we’re at max capacity?As women in the healthcare industry (or really any industry) we tend to fear being perceived as incapable. You may not even realize it, but subconsciously you might be holding onto the idea that if you say no to something, your colleagues are going to think you can’t do it. Ultimately, that’s just not a good enough reason to do things, so in this episode of Weight Loss for Busy Physicians, I’m sharing some questions that you can ask yourself to identify whether or not you want to do something and have the capacity for it. We’re also talking about how to say no when you know that what you’re being asked to do isn’t right for you. Topics covered in this episode include:Things that we tend to take on even whe

The Shame of Gaining Weight Back

Why do we feel shame so heavily around gaining weight back after losing some?There is an explanation for this when we think about the messages we receive about weight throughout our lives, but those external messages don’t actually mean anything about your worth at all. I’m making it my mission to release you of the shame surrounding weight gain. In this episode of Weight Loss for Busy Physicians, I’m unpacking how to separate your body from your self-worth.

You Are Allowed to Lose Weight

Do you feel like you’re allowed to lose weight?Not too long ago, I started noticing that there’s a lot of messaging surfacing online telling women that it’s not okay to lose weight. Women (especially celebrities) who lose weight come under a huge amount of fire and are shamed by other women for their decisions. Don’t women face enough shame already without us adding this to their plates?Here’s the thing. I think it often starts with good intentions from women who have had negative experiences with weight loss and don’t want anyone else to go through it. The problem is, it goes too far when we try to tell other adult women how to live their lives. Only you know what’s best for you, and guess what? If weight loss is part of what’s best for you, that’s okay! If you’re worried about how other people will react to your weight loss, use this episode to help you navigate those conversations. Topics covered in this episode include:

Reframing Your Relationship With Failure

“Failure is the information you need to get where you’re going.” -Rick RubinI heard this quote as I was listening to Rick Rubin’s audiobook and it got me thinking about how we approach our relationships with failure.

Nature’s Remedy for When You’re in a Funk

How much time do you spend out in nature?When I started spending more time in nature, I noticed a huge improvement in how I felt and now it’s something that I prioritize all year round. For me, it usually looks like taking my dog for a walk around the neighborhood or at the park, but for you it might look like eating your lunch on the patio, spending time by the lake or the ocean, taking a quick walk on your lunch break, or something else entirely! Often we forget to reverse-engineer what we’re doing when we feel great so that we can remember how to recreate it when we don’t feel so good. Spending time in nature is one of those things for me, and I hope it will be for you too. In this episode of Weight Loss for Busy Physicians, I’m sharing the benefits of spending time in nature and some ideas to help get you outside even if it’s tricky with your schedule. Topics covered in this episode include:The benefits of spending mo

When Doctors Avoid the Doctor's Office

Have you been putting off going to the doctor’s office?You would think that as doctors we would have no problem going to get medical care for ourselves, but it’s actually pretty common for doctors to avoid going to the doctor’s office. This comes up again and again for my clients and I’ve dealt with it too, so if this is something you struggle with, you’re not alone. Why is it that we avoid going to a doctor?

Negotiation for Physicians with Linda Street, MD

How do you go about asking for what you want in the workplace?No one really teaches you how to have difficult conversations when it comes to asking for the compensation you deserve, so it can be hard to speak up and advocate for yourself.The reality is if we want to have any hope of closing the gender pay gap in medicine then we have to learn to ask for what we want.

Work/Life Alignment

I want to propose an alternative to work/life balance. What if we worked towards work/life alignment instead? I don’t know about you, but I cringe when I hear the term “work/life balance.” The more we try to achieve it, the worse we feel about ourselves. For something to be balanced, it has to be perfectly matched on both sides, and I just don’t think that’s realistic when it comes to work and life. That’s why I prefer to think of getting my work and life aligned. In this episode, I’m talking about the difference between balance and alignment and why I think one makes more sense than the other when it comes to our work and lives. If you feel defeated constantly trying to find the perfect balance, I feel you, and I’m here to give you permission to stop. All show notes are available at  https://katrinaubellmd.com/po

Self Investment Potential

Do you struggle to spend money on yourself?Whenever the Weight Loss for Doctors Only program opens up, I hear from women physicians who are interested in it but can’t bring themselves to sign up. They want results, they know it would help them, but they just can’t do it. I want to explore why we struggle so much to invest in ourselves. As a doctor, you are highly influential in other people’s lives, so it’s logical that when you are at your best physically and mentally, you are better able to positively influence the lives that you touch.

What to Do When You Stumble on Your Weight Loss Journey

Have you ever had a little stumble and felt like you ruined your whole plan; like you’ll never be able to lose that weight?If you stumbled on the sidewalk, it wouldn’t stop you from ever going for a walk again, right? So how do we take that approach to stumbling and apply it to weight loss? We all stumble physically and sometimes we stumble figuratively on our journeys to weight loss or freedom around food. In this episode, I’m teaching you how to handle a little stumble so that it doesn’t ruin your day or your plan. There’s no way you’re going to go through the process of losing weight permanently without having some stumbles, so you’re better off preparing for them than trying to pretend they’ll never happen.

Ep #301: A Sneaky Way You're Sabotaging Yourself

You may not realize that there are sneaky ways in which your own self-talk can actually hold you back, and that’s exactly what I’m diving into in this episode.

Ep #294: Medico-Legal Fears

In the United States, in particular, it’s not unusual for doctors to be aware of the legal ramifications of their actions, and in recent weeks there seems to have been an uptick in medico-legal fears among doctors. We all know there is a line between what is considered malpractice and what is not, and we all go to great lengths to ensure that we stay on the right side of that line. Despite that, many of us still struggle with the fear of potential legal recourse, and this can affect how we show up for our patients and for ourselves. In this episode, I’m sharing my thoughts on how to recognize and overcome the fears we have so that we can be the best version of ourselves.

Ep #228: Your Value

Today’s topic is something that I’m really fired up about. I’ve thought about talking about it on this podcast for a long time, but something happened that pushed me to finally take the leap. What am I talking about? The gender wage gap and, more specifically, how we value ourselves. You might be wondering how the gender wage gap has anything to do with losing weight, but the wage gap comes down to so much more than what we are paid: it is about how we value ourselves. Listen in as I share how we often get our values and our value as a human being confused, why it’s time to stop thinking that people pay us for our value rather than the value we offer, and how all of this can affect the weight loss journey.

There might be something holding you back and affecting the way you show up in this life that you’re not even aware of: your beliefs.

So in this episode, I’m talking about the concept of belief setpoints and how once we start to realize that our beliefs are putting self-imposed limitations on us, we can shift that mindset and become and achieve more than we could ever imagine.

Ep #205: 100+ Lbs Weight Loss Success Story: Kathryn Ray, MD

Kathryn Ray is an MD OBGYN from Illinois who has lost over 100 lbs in the Weight Loss For Doctors Only program. She came to us from a place of having tried every other program or diet out there and had resigned herself to living as “a big girl.” She joins me today to share what it was like losing 100 lbs and how her entire life changed through the mindset shift she had around food and dieting, including how she got control back and strengthened who she is as a person outside of her doctor identity.

Ep #204: Stop Beating Yourself Up To Motivate Yourself

Today&apos;s topic is something that I have coached on so many times, and it’s something that all of us do—even if we may not even realize it.

You don’t have to look very far to see the signs of gratitude for healthcare workers. All around us people are showing their appreciation for those on the front lines, and for some of us, that appreciation may feel uncomfortable. If someone calls you a hero, does it make you feel appreciated, or does it make you recoil? How your brain interprets what people say is the deciding factor on how you feel about it, so if the “hero” title doesn’t resonate with you, it’s likely because you don’t believe in your worth. So today, I want to challenge you to let this situation give you insight into how you really feel about yourself.

Ep #159: Overeating As a Feminist Issue

Today, I’m going to share with you a new perspective on how to think about overeating. For years, women have been shamed for being overweight—and conversely taught that we should be able to overeat. I believe that when we as women don’t lose weight because we are afraid or think that we can’t do it, we are not only holding ourselves back, but we are also holding other women back.

Ep #99: Redefining Beauty

Today I want to talk about how we define what is beautiful. With all the ad images we see depicting looks that are often impossible for anyone to achieve without Photoshop, it’s easy to start comparing ourselves to an ideal that we can’t reach. And that often turns into a negative self-concept, even if we don’t always realize it consciously. This is something that a lot of us struggle with, and something I’m still working to overcome myself. So in this episode, I’m going to share some of the work I’ve been doing to improve how I feel about myself and my body shape, as well as how I recognized that I needed to work on this in the first place. I’ll also go through what you can do to figure out how this might be playing out in your own life and give you the tools to help you redefine beauty and learn to love yourself as you are.

I’ve been doing a considerable amount of self-coaching recently for my master coach training program, and in the process of doing that, I have come to realize that there is a much healthier way to think about decisions.

Ep #62: Why We Fear Rejection—And What To Do About It

Have you ever wondered why people are afraid of rejection? It’s a fascinating reality, especially considering that the feeling is so common and easily triggered. We can feel rejected if someone doesn’t want a second date, if a patient leaves us a negative review, if our child wants someone else to put them to bed—the list goes on and on. So why does the fear of rejection still dictate our behavior? It all goes back to our primitive brain. In this episode, I’m going to share the origin of our rejection-averse nature and how to overcome it so you can live your best life.

Ep #59: The Sneaky Way Our Brains Convince Us To Quit

Many of us think of quitting as a clear, definite end where we totally give up, but today I want to talk to you about a smaller, sneakier kind of quitting that doesn’t really feel like a problem—until it is. I’m talking about what I call the micro-quit. It’s a subtle way our brains justify going off plan just a little bit, and then gradually convince us to quit completely. And if we don’t see it coming, it’s so easy to fall into this trap. In this episode, I explain how this mental shift happens, and what you can do to keep it from sabotaging your weight loss.

Ep #57: Understanding Pleasure: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Have you ever wondered what makes people do the things they do? At the most primal level, the answer is pleasure. We’re all striving for a dopamine hit.

In this episode, I&apos;ll break down the science behind pleasure and explains the key differences between healthy, natural dopamine triggers and unhealthy, artificial ones.

Hello there! I’m so excited to offer you this bonus episode. Because I know that many of you have made the resolution to lose weight, I’m offering you this special New Year’s podcast to tell you why you should not go on a diet in 2018.

The vast majority of people who lose weight on a diet will gain it back, and usually a little—or a lot—more. So what should you do to lose weight instead? Start becoming a naturally thin person.

Ep #40: The Dangers of Fatigue

Fatigue. We’ve all been there, right? All-nighters, sleepless evenings, moving through mornings in a fog—it seems to be more and more common these days. But the truth is that fatigue is a dangerous epidemic that puts our health and safety at risk. Repeated nights of disrupted sleep are linked to higher rates of diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, obesity, certain cancers, and more. Every year there are more car crashes and deaths attributed to excessive somnolence, drowsiness, and falling asleep behind the wheel than to drunk driving and other forms of intoxication. Fatigue is also especially problematic in the medical field, as it leads to human error and jeopardizes patient safety. That’s why it’s so important to make sleep a priority and break out of the fatigue cycle. It’s up to us to take care of ourselves and make sure we’re getting the rest we n

Today I want to bring us back to a place where we have the ability to disconnect from things we cannot control and live a happier, more effective life. As physicians, this can be an especially tricky trap to fall into when we rely too heavily on the outcome of our treatments or suggestions. In her book Loving What Is, Byron Katie discusses this issue beautifully. Katie states that if you are mentally in someone else&apos;s business or God&apos;s business, the result is separation from yourself.

Ep #14: Battling Busyness in Our Daily Lives

Doctors invest so much energy in delivering quality care to patients that it can be hard to care for ourselves. Instead of being a martyr wallowing in dread and self-pity, you need to check in with your attitude and change the energy you bring to your day.

Ep #13: The Right Mindset for Controlling Your Weight

I kick off today&apos;s episode with my favorite broccoli recipe, which involves infusing it with sesame oil. Yum! Then, I dive into my best advice for crafting the right mindset for your weight loss efforts. It is important to remember that losing weight takes time and that slow, steady, consistent effort produces the best results. Consistency is preferable to your weight yoyo-ing up and down. The foundation of consistency is a healthy mindset and intentional action. You can find show notes and more information by clicking here: www.katrinaubellmd.com/13

Ep #12: Processing Negative Emotions Without Comfort Food

This week we&apos;re going to talk about the emotions involved with traumatic life events and how they impact your diet. Feeling afraid and sad during overwhelming events is normal. You can feel isolated and lonely for long periods of time, and learning to process those feelings in a healthy way is essential. It&apos;s not always something that we take the time to do properly.

Ep #11: Justifying Going Off Your Eating Plan

There are probably several times a day when you&apos;re tempted to go off-plan. &quot;I&apos;m having a really hard day, so I deserve to eat something good that I hadn&apos;t planned for!&quot; That was a common refrain for me at one point, too. In this show, I&apos;m talking about why justifications like the above are some of the biggest obstacles to sustained weight loss and a healthy relationship with yourself. What might sound like a harmless little excuse is actually undermining your success. I also want to hear from you about the justifications you use for overeating.

Ep #10: Bringing Constraint to Your Eating

I know constraint might sound like a super restrictive concept, but it&apos;s one of the most freeing principles you can apply to your health - especially when applied to eating. Constraint is all about building boundaries inside which we can thrive and become the best versions of ourselves. Since constraint is a concept, we get to decide how we feel about it. I see constraint as bringing me peace from decision fatigue. I don&apos;t have to constantly think about what I&apos;m eating, what I&apos;m going to eat, how it fits into my weight loss goals, etcetera - because I only eat what I&apos;ve already committed to for the day. And rather than cooking a different meal every single night, it allows us to focus on fueling our bodies with healthy foods, not entertaining ourselves with new dishes.  You can find show notes and more information by clicking here: http://www.katrinaubellmd.com/10

Ep #9: How A Cluttered Life Can Prevent Weight Loss

My topic for this episode, decluttering, might seem unrelated to weight loss at first. But I know that when I was on my own weight loss journey, I realized that the overabundance of stuff at my house was stressing me out and pushing me to overeat.  Our brains are hard-wired to seek pleasure, which isn&apos;t a bad thing in itself. What trips us up is that many of us seek short-term pleasure in things like food or clothes, especially when we&apos;re feeling upset or dissatisfied with our lives. But, just as with food, buying more shoes, home decor, or toys for our kids isn&apos;t going to truly make us feel any better.  You can find show notes and more information by clicking here: http://www.katrinaubellmd.com/9

Ep #8: Making Decisions Ahead of Time

Our brains make decisions differently when we&apos;re calmly planning ahead (using our prefrontal cortex) versus making impulse judgments (sprinting to the office because we&apos;re on-call). Deciding what to eat ahead of time will reduce brain chatter and decision fatigue, and keep you on track with your weight loss goals.  While it&apos;s important to make these commitments to yourself, the most critical piece of the puzzle is honoring them. If you&apos;re used to breaking promises to yourself, whether they be about food, exercise, or self-care, this will be hard at first. But you can re-condition your brain to rebuild trust with yourself about your decisions and commitments.  You can find show notes and more information by clicking here: http://www.katrinaubellmd.com/8

Ep #6: Building Awareness of Your Eating Habits & The Hunger Scale

In today&apos;s episode, I&apos;m introducing you to my 1-on-1 framework that I use with clients, beginning with step one: awareness. Last week, we talked about confusion on what to eat, how to track progress, and other hangups that can keep you from losing weight. Now we&apos;re focusing on building awareness: of what you&apos;re eating; why you&apos;re eating it; how your body is feeling; and how hungry you really are. It might sound like a lot when you read that list, but it&apos;s very simple to put in practice, and you can start today!

Ep #4: Rethinking the Scarcity Mentality

This week on Weight Loss for Busy Physicians, we&apos;ll stroll down memory lane to examine a regular occurrence we all know and love - ordering Girl Scout cookies. Yes, those little treats are tasty. Many of us remember our time in the Girls Scouts and Brownies favorably and want to help support the little ladies in our lives as well. However, something about having access to these cookies once a year promotes an overindulgence in self-destructive eating patterns.

Ep #2: Practicing Awareness of Your Thoughts & Feelings

One of my main goals of the show is to help you become an expert at applying the model, so you can use it to work past negative emotions and stay on track with your goals, whatever they may be.
