Ep #36: A Life-Changing 110 Pound Weight Loss: Interview with Angie Beauchaine, MD

On this episode, I interview Angie Beauchaine, MD about her 110 pound weight loss. She is a fellow physician and mother who has battled with weight her entire life. We discuss how she finally took control of her health, the motivation behind it, and how her life has been changed by something as simple as meditation.

Angie touches on some really important topics that go hand-in-hand with her weight loss journey. One of the most important was the commitment that helped her get through it and what health, work, and life issues she had to deal with in the meantime. She also has some great insight on how important self-care is in order to maintain your health in the fast-paced and stressful medical world.

    Hi Katrina,
    Loved this podcast – please give us more of these stories – I find them inspiring and motivating. Maybe you can do a short success story with each podcast?? -Just a though. And also, can you talk about artificial sweeteners – especially Erythritol and Monk fruit extract and how they play a role as a Fat burner. Lots of Ketogenic dieter use Erythritol. And these so called Paleo desserts come with Honey, Date Syrup and Maple syrup – I don’t understand how the insulin spike caused by Honey/Date Syrup/Maple syrup is any different from Table Sugar. Would love to hear your thoughts.

    Thank you for this great podcast! I had a question about eating -4 to +4 on the hunger scale and intermittent fasting. Skipping breakfast or doing a 24 hr fast definitely has me getting really hungry that I eat a bit too much when I do eat after. How do you reconcile eating when you’re only -4 versus trying to increase your fasting window and letting yourself go beyond -4.

    Great episode. I appreciated the honesty about the extra skin and also the thoughts around who will you be when you are no longer obsessed with the weight. Thank you so much!

    Can you talk more about how to get started with meditation?

  • Kammy

    @Jordan- I have found a great affordable tool for meditation and yoga of all levels with ekhartyoga.com. It is $1 for the first month to try- then $120/month, but I think it is best to look on youtube and get a feel for the instructors re. meditation and yoga without signing up for anything. This isn’t an ad, I’m a Family Doctor who has been doing locums and per diem work for the past 2 1/2 years. Since I “excused myself” from my hospital owned practice, my finances are much more restricted. I’ve had time to explore a variety of online classes while I figure out how to use my education and experience without making my family miserable. Esther Ekhart provides a series of bedtime yoga/meditation practices that are 10-12 minutes long that have helped me (and my daughter) tremendously with insomnia issues.

    Hi! You recommended headspace here but I think you have previously recommended an app for residents before on mindfulness/journaling. Thoughts?
