So many people are taking prescription medications these days under the direction of their primary care physician assuming that their family doctor has vetted out all the potential ramifications of those drugs. But sometimes the patient isn’t told about the side effects that certain medications are having on their weight leading to frustration when the scale refuses to budge. This is something that an Olney, Maryland-based licensed practicing board certified family and bariatric medicine physician named Dr. Spencer Nadolsky from DrSpencer.com (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with him in Episode 880) has seen so many times in his own patient population that he decided to write a book detailing this and other fat loss obstacles. It’s called The Fat Loss Prescription: The Nine-Step Plan to Losing Weight and Keeping It Off and provides excellent clinical advice from an obesity doc who cares about using evidence-based approaches to shedding pounds.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Spencer on how he has continued to pursue obesity medicine, why he thinks the blogosphere gets into the minutia of weight and health, the negative impact of stress on your weight, his experience with carbohydrate cravings working the night shift, why some patients might want to be put on weight loss medications sooner, how he still eats some carbs because he can handle them, how he hit the wall in endurance exercise when he first shifted to keto, the big whoosh of energy he felt after two weeks of adapting to ketones, the birth control that can lead to weight gain (but not all of them), some of the pathways involved in medications that lead to weight gain, why statins don’t lead to weight gain directly, the “dangerous” drugs that rapidly increase insulin levels in the blood, why keeping patients on insulin makes it very hard to lose weight, and the impact of the various anti-psychotics on weight.
