Yeah, it’s a long one. Manifestos aren’t usually short.

On Ella, I am lucky enough to connect with experts who are amazing, have a story to tell, and can add huge value to my listeners. When that expert is willing to actually take the time to make sure we get what we need, I am ALL EARS.

I’m all ears.

Dr. Jade Teta literally wrote the book on health and fitness. His uber-successful Metabolic Effect program has achieved international raves for its simplicity, effectiveness and impact. It’s not a diet, it’s THE outline for healthy eating, fitness and fat loss.

Dr. Jade took the time to walk us through the Metabolic Effect approach – with dozens of specific actions and tactics sprinkled throughout from his books, including the information he’s only just sharing now in his new book, Lose Weight Here: The Metabolic Secret to Target Stubborn Fat and Fix Your Problem Areas.

So, take the time on this one. Listen in 20 minute increments, and come back and listen again. Pay attention, make notes. This might be the one thing you needed to move toward permanent change. Dr. Jade gives us pure gold. 

What We Talk About:

  • Dieter: NO. Detective: YES.
  • Your best clues: Hunger, Energy, Cravings, Body Composition, Health Markers 
  • How to make a change: where to start, what to do
  • So, what do we eat?
  • Specific food strategies that work for fat loss
  • How to manage cravings
  • Trigger foods vs buffer foods
  • Calories: do they matter or not? (final answer!)
  • Can we eat fat, starch and sugar or not?
  • Examples of small, simple changes you can start making now for long-term transformation
  • What to order if you’re eating fast food
  • Willpower vs Skillpower
  • Jade’s Italian. He likes food. I just thought you should know this.
  • How to apply “structured flexibility” to get where you want to go
  • Exercise: As little as possible, as hard as possible for the result you’re seeking
  • Jade’s “always order dessert” strategy
  • The “As If” Jedi mind trick you can use to accomplish your goals
  • Jade’s travel strategy 
  • Real men take walks (chicks, too)

There’s no such thing as “no time,” there’s just “priority” and “non-priority.” – Dr. Jade Teta
