How to Use the Metabolic Effect for Fat Loss with Dr. Jade Teta

By: Ben Brown

Most of us think that if we eat less and work out more we will lose weight, but that’s simply NOT the case. In fact, doing so is often a recipe for weight gain. Why? Well, the answer lies in understanding the metabolism and what it takes to function optimally.


If you’re curious about how the metabolism really works, you’re struggling to lose weight and can’t figure out why, or if you’re simply interested in optimizing your metabolic health, then you need to check out my podcast with Dr. Jade Teta.


If you can remember that the metabolism is simply a stress barometer,  you can start to understand why it runs into problems very quickly when you don’t let is seek its natural balance.


Dr. Teta is an integrative physician, highly sought after expert in the realm of metabolism and self-development and author of the best-selling books The Metabolic Effect DietMetabolic Aftershock and Lose Weight Here. He spent the last 25+ years immersed in the study of strength and conditioning, hormonal metabolism and the psychology of change and success.


Additionally, Dr. Teta is the founder and creator of Metabolic Effect, an international health and fitness company, as well as the creator of Jade Teta, LLC, where he combines his knowledge of fitness with his expertise in self-development and mindset change.


During our extremely informative discussion we take a deep dive into metabolism, why metabolism is so important, the ideas of metabolic damage, metabolic compensation, and metabolic resistance, why we experience weight-loss resistance and how to adjust our nutrition, exercise, and mindset in order to help our metabolism function the way it’s supposed to function. Dr. Teta also shares both subjective and objective tools to help identify and overcome common metabolic issues many of us are struggling with on a daily basis. I guarantee this is a podcast that you will not want to miss.
