Dr. Mary Clifton

Dr. Mary is a practicing physician specializing in Internal Medicine. She’s an expert in plant-based medicine, nutrition, and lifestyle. She’s also the founder of GetWaisted and author of several books including:

  • Waist Away: How to Joyfully Lose Weight and Supercharge Your Life
  • Get Waisted Cookbook: 100 Addictively Delicious Plant-based Entrees
  • Get Graduated
  • Radiance 4 Life

 

In her 30’s Dr. Mary was surprised with a diagnosis of prediabetes and high cholesterol. Worse than that, she felt exhausted at the end of the workday and struggled to have meaningful interactions with the most important people in her life. Even though she exercised every day and ate a healthful diet, her family history of heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, depression and obesity were sneaking up on her anyway. After all of the hard work as a single mom in medical school, she didn’t have the energy to enjoy the time at the end of the day with her family.

Doctors suggested diabetes and cholesterol medications, but that wasn’t the direction Dr. Mary chose to go. Instead, she researched and studied the patterns in the medical literature, and made some changes to her diet, exercise plan, and supplements. In just 72 hours, her blood sugars returned to normal. In just 3 months, she shaved 70 points off her cholesterol. Instead of feeling tired after a day’s work, she felt ready to go for a bike ride with her girls, or play with chalk in the driveway, or swim in Lake Michigan.

Starting a new lifestyle was relatively easy, but over time, cravings and other challenges threatened to derail her progress. With some additional research as well as thoughtful introspection, these cravings and challenges were squelched and she stuck with her changes for many years. She was onto something.

Listen to this amazing episode and discover how Dr. Mary used her own experience to help others also choose a healthy lifestyle.
