Recipe to losing weight | Anna Verhulst | TEDxMaastricht

10204 ratings | 1515748 views
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Anna Verhulst (23) is a fifth year medical student at Maastricht University, doing her internship in Eindhoven. She has a particular interest in the fields of oncology and sports medicine, but isn’t quite sure yet what kind of doctor she wants to become when she graduates in 2016. Anna is a keen writer, sharing her experiences as a junior intern through columns, essays and opinion pieces. A selection of her publications can be found at annaverhulst.blogspot.nl. In between her internships, she is also involved in a research project that explores the possibilities of exercise rehabilitation in cancer survivors. On stage at TEDx Maastricht 2014, Anna will share a story that she has purposely kept silent for a long time. It is a story that has nothing to do with her work as a medical student, researcher or writer. It is her personal story, for which she has finally worked up the courage to share it with the public.

If only someone has told me about “fetching tuti space” (Google it) a lot earlier! I would have achieved my weight loss goal a few years ago. After trying out this product, I got awesome outcomes. I lost 5lbs in A couple of weeks! For optimum outcomes, use this merchandise along with a great eating routine..

This is the second time I watched your video. I think you can lose your fear and enjoy happiness. You brought tears to my eyes. Always be on the lookout for things that will keep you motivated. As time passes your healthy look will sink into your brain, and the previous image of yourself will begin to disappear. You're smart, brave, beautiful inside and out, really. Your accent is delightful. I'm so glad I watched you speak, I know it will help me. PS: ignore negative comments:)

"We" were never "cavemen". Darwinism is false. Selection from existing genes does happen, but what she is referencing is a fairytale.

What she's saying is true and important, BUT the title of the video is completely (and perhaps purposely) misleading. There is wisdom here but absolutely no information. There is no recipe.

I loved this TedX. Really good, i feel exactly the same as the speaker, but someday that will change, i hope so. XD

Thank you for sharing your story. You are truly inspiring!

I think she made great progress. I feel for her, but honestly, there was nothing informative about this video. I was hoping for some facts.

The answer to weight loss is , was and always will be...no drum rolls please : FASTING and EXERCISE. This is what we need to do ,this is what our ancestors had to do ( they didnt have a choice you see ) , Hunt for food hence exercise and wait for the next hunt hence fasting. Search the yooutube for the word intermittent fasting and its benefits you will see how it has changed thousands of lives and we need not search for exercise to know that it works . The moment when these two ingredients meet the recipe is complete. Thanks for reading guys.... cheers....

Bravo ! I would just like to add that you don't have a new body ; it is still the same but it as simply changed, transformed its appearance and let go of unnecessary weight to carry and to hide behind...

I was hoping she'd elaborate on the personal journey to discovering how what worked for her, worked. Rather, this talk was more of a personal milestone toward alleviating her insecurity, with the audience as her tool. It was a disappointing TED talk because of this. And that's coming from someone who has lost over 100lbs.

I lost 60 pounds a 15 years back and still have to work on the intake of food, I quit drinking 40 years ago, had a problem with that as well, kinda like eating. Quit tobacco 18 months ago after 45 years of use and still crave it, kinda like food, point is in all of these things it takes willpower to accomplish anything in life that is worth doing, just keep trying in the end you will work it out. The woman in the speech should be proud of what she has done, overcoming fear is real and takes that willpower thing I was speaking of, keep going girl!!

It's a good talk but a frustrating video because of the title. A better title might be, how to make peace with your body image. The current title makes it seem like we would get information on how to lose weight.

I now have the recipe for weight loss! All other sources were vague but not this one . . .

The intro made me so uncomfortable that went to the basement, I dusted off the seat of the exercycle, swept the cob webs off the peddles and wheezed away 40 calories watching to the end. The pulse shot up but the heart survived, and I’m feel pretty good. Now the hard part,....keeping up the effort.
Marie Simmons (6 months ago)
Eat when you hungry, eat exactly what you feel like eating, stop the instant you feel full, wait to feel actual hunger again, and repeatYou won't have a weight problem or a food problem. It sounds simple I know. Because it is.

Title should be, “Overcoming Body Image.” Nothing was stated about how she lost so much weight in a year. Perhaps she put the fries down and picked up an apple. All we can do is guess. Came here to listen about the recipe for weight loss not about body image.

Body type is a big issue for some people. Look at a french fry and gain weight. It's not fair but it's true. It's not just about calories.

She has simply stated that losing weight is a complicated problem but hasn't given any reasons why she thinks that's the case. Maybe it is a complicated problem when looking into the details but the bottom line is when you don't eat food you lose weight. Fast for a week and you will lose weight. That's not complicated

misleading title
Todd Mitchell (9 months ago)
This was a very moving talk. She doesn't give you the recipe to lose weight necessarily, but really gives one something to think about and a little insight into her thoughts after her journey. I was impressed and moved by her sharing. I will be sharing this video with others. Thank You!

I understand what you are talking about, it is the same the other way around. I was good looking whole my life and now I am overweight and when I see my legs and arms I am still tin, but in the mirror it's other picture, am looking for a quite time my recipe to be my old again.

Em what did she sayyy again....
Madeline Ernst (9 months ago)
I guess all of those who said something negative about this Video, never tried to lose weight and never saw how goddamn hard it is to look in the mirror and to not be happy of what you see. and the Phrase "Just lose the weight then" is not the answer anyone wants to hear because if it was that easy, we would all be thin.
Lola Lola (10 months ago)
How very well spoken and thank you for sharing your personal experience in this. I really enjoyed the presentation and the message - our world tends to oversimplify very complex things, so thank you for shining light on the complexity of something so close to home. I could feel so many vibes from this, hope the presenter continues to concur her fears.
Valarie Knight (10 months ago)
Speech misnamed. Had nothing to do with recipe. Just someone else feeling sorry for themselves and wanting to get attention. Apparently she's still struggling with her self image and has no real clue how she lost weight. Nine minutes of my life I won't get back.

While I don't really understand the psychological aspect of losing weight and living with a somewhat different body image I will say this. There is a recipe to losing weight. #1- Find a TDEE Calculator on google, it'll tell you how many calories to eat to lose/maintain/gain weight and what your macros are. #2- Cut sugar and processed food out of your diet. It doesn't need to happen over night but make it happen little by little. #3- Use a calorie calculator app on your phone to track what you're eating. #4- Exercise (optional but highly recommended) Weight lifting is better than cardio as it burns calories for longer after you're done training. #5- Stay consistent Simple, definitely not complex.
Carmel Weir-Urquhart (11 months ago)
Although she didn't give the answers everyone obviously wanted, she was open and vulnerable about the complexities of weight loss. It is far more personal to her than many of the gurus who tote their instant fixes. I bet she worked hard, ate better, etc. Her point is that is is an individual struggle and there isn't 1 miracle answer to all weight loss issues. God bless her for sharing her heart. I feel sorry for those who are tearing her down with their words. Make your own TedTalk video and let's see/hear YOU. 😉

losing weight is step 1, getting fit is step 2... so start step 2 You seem a little on the loose side you need to tighten up things
