INTRO TO EPISODE:

Welcome back, Health Investor!

As I record this intro, I’m currently “sheltering in place” during the coronavirus pandemic. I’m sure you are, as well! Wherever you are, I hope this episode finds you healthy and safe.

I don’t remember exactly how I found Jamie Hernandez’s Instagram page, but once I did I was super impressed and intrigued.

Jamie is currently on an incredible weight loss journey; to date, she’s lost about 100 pounds! And, the really cool part about it is that she’s done so by figuring out what works for HER body, rather than following some prescriptive diet.

As you can imagine, losing 100 pounds is no easy feat. Jamie has gained so much wisdom throughout the process, which is why I wanted to have her on the podcast! 

If you’re currently working on losing weight, you’re gonna LOVE the insights she shares. If you’re NOT trying to lose weight, you’ll still love Jamie’s thoughts on “health positivity” vs “body positivity,” how some American doctors and French doctors differ when it comes to their perspective on weight loss (Jamie used to live in the US but now lives in France, so her thoughts on this topic are interesting!), why some people are “triggered” by the topic of weight loss…and more!

As always, I appreciate all of the support you give The Health Investment Podcast. Whenever you write an Apple Podcast review, share an episode with a friend, or post your thoughts about an episode on social media, you help the podcast gain traction! So thank you!!

Enjoy the episode 🙂
