Discover Your True Hunger with Dr. Adrienne Youdim

What is hunger? Sure, there is physical hunger. But hunger is also spiritual, emotional, and psychological. Sometimes our desire for food is actually a deeper hunger that seeks to be understood.

Surprisingly, even though we have different circumstances and backgrounds, there are some universal hungers that we all long for.

Dr. Adrienne Youdim, an internist who specializes in medical weight loss and nutrition and the author of Hungry For More, believes that we are all hungry for connection, belonging, understanding, and meaning. She has made it her mission to transform the weight loss narrative from shame to empowerment so that people can live more physically and emotionally fulfilling lives.

Dr. Adrienne’s fresh perspective is grounded in science and brought to life through stories she’s gathered from her patients and her own personal journey. She encourages people to leave judgment aside and lead with awareness, self-acceptance, and self-compassion.

This conversation is not about typical dieting strategies, but rather it focuses on how to identify your underlying hunger, so you can feel more satisfied on your plate… and in your life.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The downside of perfectionism and how to release it
  • How our psychological hunger shows up as a need to soothe
  • Simple tips to deal with uncertainty and the desire for control
  • The role of genetics in weight loss (and more)
