Ever had some huge emotions swamp you and all you could think was, “Feelings… yuck!”? Well believe it or not, you are in control of your feelings and emotions and they are the key to unlocking success and fulfillment. Don’t believe me? Dr. Katrina Ubell is here to share why this is true and why her methods work for her clients. 


Dr. Ubell is known as the weight loss coach for busy physicians but what she really does is so much more impactful. After spending years of her life on the yo-yo of dieting, losing and gaining weight in equal measure, she knew there had to be a change. 


It took having a pretty huge emotional event happen for her to realize that it was time to bring in an expert. She started with a life coach and what she realized was that her weight loss or gain was directly related with the feelings and emotions she was experiencing. 


From there she was able to take charge of her emotions and she’s been finding success and fulfillment ever since. She was one of the very first physician coaches that I started following and unbeknownst to her, she’s the reason that I knew this path was possible.


Listen as we chat about her background, the role of emotions in our lives, and why you don’t have to be ruled by them nor do you need to suppress them. So much of what we learn as doctors is to ignore what’s going on in your body so that you can just keep pressing on. It’s time to stop and we’re sharing how you can do it!


“Feelings are everything, feelings are so important, feelings do create all of our results, but we totally have control over what we are feeling.” Dr. Katrina Ubell
