Losing weight is about eating in a small calorie deficit over time (But this doesn’t mean you need to count calories!).   On today's episode, Dietitian Samar Kullab and I chat all about how to lose weight AND actually maintain it!   There’s so much misinformation on social media so be sure to tune into this episode to learn, from the experts, the ins and outs of healthy weight loss and what’s the truth vs. social media fiction!   You can follow Samar on Instagram (@chicago.dietitian) or TikTok (@chicago.dietitian).

I support this podcast and Leanne so much that I went through the trouble of registering to leave a comment. As a dietitian myself I am always looking to grow my knowledge base. this podcast, from the very first episode I listened to has been a gift, such a collection of knowledge. The best thing about it is that I trust Leanne and I know her messages are evidence based. I shared a lot of the information with my patients the very same day! Thanks Leanne. You have a huge fan in me!
