Podcast #328:
The Stubborn Fat Fix.

Guest: Dr. Jade Teta, ND

It’s like your metabolism has a mind of its own.

You eat less. It burns less.

You lose ten pounds. It gains eleven back.

It’s just not fair.

The logical solution is to eat even less and exercise even more. But that won’t fix it. Never has, never will.

Nor will it fix those “stubborn problem areas” that don’t seem to budge. Lower body fat and arm jiggle, for women. Love handles and belly/chest fat in men.

Like Father Time, your metabolism never loses. Unless…

In today’s episode of Underground Wellness Radio, our friend Dr. Jade Teta, co-author of Lose Weight Here, reveals how you can work WITH your metabolism to lose weight permanently and target those problem areas.

Here’s what you’ll learn: 



* Why alternating between periods of “eating less, exercising less” and “eating more, exercising more” sidesteps the starvation signals that slow down your metabolism.

* Beta receptors and alpha receptors. The science behind stubborn fat cells. (And what to do about them!)

* The male 6-pack abs formula: (P + V) x (Sl + IE)

* Specific supplements for targeting lower-body fat in women.

Podcast #327:
Ex-Pharma Sales Rep Tells All.

UW Radio #327

Guest: Gerald Roliz, CNC

He had an unlimited expense account.

Or as his manager would say, “Spend until I tell you to stop.”

He drove a company car — gas and insurance paid for. Dined at the finest restaurants. Made his own work schedule. And maybe saw his manager once a month.

He earned a “comfortable” income. By society standards, he was free.

But Gerald Roliz was a drug dealer. Not the illicit kind that will land you behind bars, but selective serotonin repute inhibitors (SSRIs) and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).

In his words, he “bought out” doctors, using fear, pressure, spin selling, and pricey dinners to win their prescriptions. Prescriptions for the drugs he sold. Prescribed to real people, many of whom would learn to live with their side effects.

Podcast #326:
8 Strategies for Creating Habits that Stick.

Gretchen Rubin

Guest: Gretchen Rubin

I assume you read this blog and listen to our weekly podcast episodes because you’re maybe looking to change something about yourself.

Maybe you’re looking to lose a few pounds, or improve your digestion, or heal your thyroid, or learn how to JERF.

Whichever it may be, creating change in your life requires two important things. First, you need to decide. To CHOOSE to make the change. And second, you MUST change your habits.

Because the cultivation of new habits is the fuel for being better than before.

I’m sure you’ve tried this approach before. You read that book … or that magazine … or that blog post about transforming your life through building new habits. But nothing ever stuck.

Before you knew it, your “new habits” slipped back into your old ways. Again and again.

But here’s what no one ever told you…

Can Social Anxiety Be Reversed with Nutrition?

Can Social Anxiety Be Reversed With

It was the most surreal (and frightening) experience of my life.

There I was, sitting on the weight room floor. Hyperventilating. Watching the floor swing from side to side. Lights suddenly blindingly bright. Scared.

I was having a panic attack.

It all began the previous afternoon. Feeling like my social anxiety had gotten out of hand, I showed up for my appointment at the campus clinic looking for help.

I rattled off my symptoms to the doctor — the sweats, tremors, racing heart, negative thoughts, all occurring in social encounters.

I had diagnosed myself with Social Anxiety Disorder. My doctor agreed.

He pulled a pad out of his pocket and wrote a prescription for Prozac.

“Prozac, really?”

For some reason, Prozac sounded a little extreme. I had done my research on its side effects and it was the last thing I thought the doc would recommend. I just wanted something to calm me down in social settings and to push me out of what had been a fairly prolonged episode of depression.

In fact, one of my favorite football players openly used another drug, Paxil, for his social anxiety. It seemed to be working for him. That’s what I wanted.

But the doctor insisted. Prozac it was.

Podcast #324:
The Obesity Paradox: Does Thinner Mean Sicker?

chip lavie

Guest: Dr. Chip Lavie, M.D.

Imagine two guys standing side by side…

Person A (we’ll call him Norm) is categorized as “normal weight” on the Body Mass Index (BMI) scale. He’s perfectly content with his weight, eats fairly well, and seldom makes time for exercise since his weight appears to be ideal.

Person B (we’ll call him Obi) has a BMI of 34, considered “mildly obese”. He also eats well, but manages to squeeze in at least 30 minutes of exercise 4-5 days each week.

Who lives longer?

Well, according to the latest research, Obi the Mildly Obese Man has a lower mortality rate than Normal Weight Norm.

Whaaaaaaaaaat!?

I know, it sounds completely backwards. But science has recently uncovered an “Obesity Paradox”, revealing the protective nature of body fat.

For example, did you know that…
