76: Losing Weight and Making Money with Dr. Amruti Choudhry

The Wealthy Mom MD Podcast with Dr. Bonnie Koo | Losing Weight and Making Money with Dr. Amruti ChoudhryToday, I have a special guest. And while this is a podcast all about money, my guest in this episode is actually a weight loss coach. You might think that sounds a little strange, but I’ve found that I meet so many weight loss coaches who have gone through the same training that I have, and the same principles and processes apply to self-improvement in both of these areas. Even inside my coaching practice, after I’ve been working with clients for a while, the subject of weight loss often comes up. 

And so, I thought it would be fun to have weight loss coach Dr. Amruti Choudhry come on the show this week to discuss the similarities and commonalities between losing weight and making money. She’s a brilliant coach and a charming guest, and I hope you’ll see how you can apply the skills you’ve been learning from this podcast to your weight loss goals if that’s something you’re working towards.

Amruti is a physician turned full-time coach who specializes in coaching South Asian professionals on weight loss. We’re discussing the scarcity-based thoughts and fear of failure that come up for our clients when losing weight and building wealth, and Amruti is sharing how she helps her clients maintain their weight once they’ve lost it, much like I help my clients manage their wealth.
