Today, Dr. Rao joins us to discuss medical weight loss and obesity medicine. We break down the basics of the gut microbiome and how this factors into our overall health. Dr. Rao digs into how "dieting" has to be a lifestyle change to be successful, and there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to our gut health. Our hunger hormones and our mood are directly related to the things we put in our body, and we discuss healthy ways to balance our meals.
