Interview with Dr. Georgia Ede
Physician mental health is a very important topic. And for those of you who are interested in losing weight for the long term, it becomes even more important. As physicians, we are caregivers. If our mental health isn’t in good shape it is hard to care for others and hard to care for ourselves.
This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Georgia Ede, MD. Georgia is a Harvard-trained, board-certified psychiatrist specializing in nutrition. She speaks internationally on many topics, including Alzheimer’s prevention, the nutritional differences between plant and animal foods, and dietary strategies to optimize brain health. She writes about food and the brain for PsychologyToday, DietDoctor, and her own website DiagnosisDiet. Her online private practice in Massachusetts offers nutrition consultation services for patients and fellow clinicians.
During this episode, Dr. Ede recommends quite a few resources. Links are below:
- Dr. Joan Ifland (Food Addiction Expert)
- Dr. Ede’s Article on Psychology Today: Ketogenic Diets for Psychiatric Disorders: A New Review
- Dr. Ede’s Article on DietDoctor.com: Low carb and mental health:The food-mood connection

Life and weight coaching are intertwined. As we work on you losing weight, stopping overeating and being in control of your eating for the long term, we automatically work on topics like burnout, stress, and anxiety. Coaching is so powerful that it not only gives your freedom from your weight struggles, but it changes so many other aspects of your life.
