Non-Scale Victories

Published: Nov 1, 2017

This week, IDM patient Kim Demarest shares her non-scale victories. We focus on benefits of fasting and lowering insulin other than purely weight loss. At the same time, Professor Tim Noakes and Dr. Aseem Malhotra talk about her struggles: trying to exercise your way out of a bad diet, and the ghost of high cholesterol. Dr. Jason Fung talks about her non-scale victories including increased mental acuity and increased body heat.

  1. I think that The Obesity Code is one of the best produced podcasts - ever!

  2. Other than doing it because its awesome, are you seeing any other ROI on that time? Increased listens, reviews, etc?

    I’m so glad you guys are producing this because it’s good stuff. I am a big fan of the TED radio hour type formatting anyway, and I think that polished structure is perfect for this content. Well done, fellas!

  4. Yeah thats really fast adoption, a few weeks in and half the downloads of the podcast with >90 shows in the catalog. Granted they get the full benefit of everyone listening to your show hearing it and plus their own Audience from their gig with Jimmy.

    Great work from you guys and we definitely appreciate the extra effort. I just became a patron tonight because I realized I spend hours a week listening and it was time I gave back.
