Weight-Loss for Food Lovers with Molly Zemek
In this episode, Molly talks about creating natural energy through weight loss, and the importance of daily habits in your transformation journey.
She begins by explaining the connection between overeating and a lack of energy. When you consume more than you need, your body has to work overtime to keep your systems stabilized. Processed foods have contributed to this problem. By injecting artificial ingredients into everything we eat, our society has developed an unhealthy relationship with food, turning it into entertainment and comfort, as opposed to fuel.
Molly outlines four major steps to losing weight and rediscovering your energy-
- Gaining control over what you eat through deliberate meal planning and awareness
- Staying hydrated throughout the day to get rid of false hunger and keep your systems lubricated
- Managing your thoughts through daily reflection with a food journal
- Ending the cycle of mindless consumption through consistent, appropriate sleep
Creating natural energy is about developing new habits and being consistent with them, she says. All it takes is just one step. Think about each area and try to implement one into your routine over the next week. You’ll be amazed by the results.

“By changing your habit of overeating, not only will you lose weight, which is an added bonus, but you will experience the benefit of being able to create natural energy for yourself, which will help you naturally feel better.”
“You may or may not realize it, but when you overeat, when you consume more food than your body actually needs, you end up expending a lot of energy just through the consumption of food.”
“What’s happened with the creation of a lot of processed foods, and the way that our society has developed, is that food has become so much more than just a source of fuel. For a lot of us, it’s a form of entertainment. It’s a way to experience comfort. It’s a way to deal with our underlying emotional issues.”
“We just assume that what’s going on in our brain, the thoughts that are circulating in our mind are ‘they are what they are,’ and there’s nothing we can do about them. That simply is not true. The truth is that we have full control over the thoughts we choose to believe about our lives.”
“If you’re interested in feeling better, if you want to genuinely have more energy during the day, if you want to start burning some of your natural fat stores, then there’s really no other way to go about it other than making sure that you’re getting enough sleep.”
