The Missing Link in Weight Loss for Women Over 50

Weight loss for women over 50 is illusive. Right? What you used to do doesn’t work anymore. They talk of inflammation, and yet you don’t feel badly when you eat the foods they suggest cause it. If you’re feeling torn between what you’re reading, hearing, and old school lessons or lifelong habits, this may help you understand the connection between gut health and weight loss for women over 50. 

My guest is a bestie and an expert, what could be better, right? He’s everywhere you’ve seen experts… Dr. Oz, Mind body green, a guest on dozens of popular podcasts. I’ve had the good fortune to know not only Dr. Pedre but to dine next to the person he is and I’ll just say this, you’ll want to know him too. (and salsa with him if he will)

Weight loss for women over 50 isn’t a new topic here, I’m sure you’ll agree. Yet, this angle is. We’re going to discuss a leaky gut, a cleanse or cleansing, and what it means to heal the gut. If you eat, and you poop, stay tuned. We all need a healthy gut. 

My Guest: 

Dr. Vincent Pedre is the Medical Director of Pedre Integrative Health and Founder of Dr. Pedre Wellness, nutraceutical consultant for NatureMD and Orthomolecular Products, CEO of Happy Gut Life LLC, and a Functional Medicine-Certified Practitioner in private practice in New York City since 2004. He believes the gut is the gateway to excellent wellness. As the bestselling author of “HAPPY GUT®—The Cleansing Program To Help You Lose Weight, Gain Energy and Eliminate Pain,” featuring his proprietary ‘blueprint’ for healing the gut, the Gut C.A.R.E.® Program—he has helped thousands around the world resolve their gut-related health issues.

Questions we answer on this podcast:

  • [04:15] First off, explain to us why the gut is connected to so many seemingly unrelated health issues, like skin rashes, headaches, low energy, weight gain, and difficulty losing weight. 
  • [06:00] Why might this be the missing link in weight loss? 
  • [07:45] Why during midlife is it so common for women to experience this? 
  • [11:18] What is leaky gut anyway, and why should people pay attention to it?
  • [23:27] I’ve heard you talk about gut-healing, but why is cleansing such an important part of that? And let’s define “cleanse” for listeners. What they think it is, and what it really is. 
  •  [32:57] You have a program you call Gut C.A.R.E. that is part of the Happy Gut 28-Day Cleanse. What is it about? And why did you develop it?
  • [40:25] Tell us about the group cleanse coming up in May. How can people join?
  • [40:40] May 9 pre-cleanse Cleanse starts May 16, 2022(if they’re listening later… is there a waitlist they’ll be able to join).
