Using Body Shape as a Metric of Health

You’ve likely been told the solution to improving your shape is eating less and exercising more. 

In this thought-provoking conversation, Dr. Greg Kelly, Director of Product Development at Qualia and Author of Shape Shift, discusses the science of shape, also known as shape intelligence. 

Dr. Kelly lays the groundwork for shape intelligence being the body's innate ability to adapt and optimize our shape based on our environment and genetic predispositions. Empowered with this knowledge we uncover the root causes, habits, and lifestyle behaviors, backed by science, that are key to improving shape, weight, and health.  

In this episode you will learn:

  • Why shape is a more accurate clue than weight when it comes to understanding our health and appearance.
  • Our bodies are complex adaptive systems that constantly strive to match us to our environment.
  • Sleep deprivation can lead to weight gain and changes in body shape.
  • Why managing stress is crucial for maintaining a healthy shape.
  • That the gut microbiome plays a significant role in shaping our bodies and should be nurtured through proper nutrition.
  • The role of intuitive eating in health and weight loss.
  • How flavor learning can expand our body's vocabulary and improve our intuitive eating abilities.
Your body adapts intelligently to the circumstances and environments it faces and your shape is a reflection of these adaptations. - Dr. Greg Kelly.

Research shows that the secret to improving and maintaining our shape lies in modifying smaller details of our lives. Forget everything you’ve been taught about shape, weight, and BMI. Science has evolved and we’re here to break it all down for you. Listen now to gain insight into what’s really controlling and influencing your shape and weight.
