Rest for Success and How to Manage Metabolism with Jade Teta

August 9, 2018

Today’s guest is extra special to me, because he has (unbeknownst to him) had a massive impact on the direction of my life, personal interests and career up to this point.

I’m so honoured to have had the opportunity to interview Dr. Jade Teta, and for anyone who isn’t already familiar with his work, I strongly advise checking out the many resources listed below that will bring you up to speed.  This episode is a must listen! 

A small local company I taught bootcamp classes for years ago had a mandatory book read before I was allowed to teach for them, and it was Dr. Jade (and his brother Dr. Keoni Teta’s) first book, The Metabolic Effect Diet.  After reading that book, my entire opinion of how I ate and exercised shifted, and I was completely hooked.

That ended up leading me to move forward as a Holistic Nutritionist, join a business mentorship at the beginning of last year with Jill Coleman, and now I work in the field full time.  So, interviewing Dr. Jade is definitely a full circle moment!


Dr. Jade Teta is an integrative physician, author and sought after expert in the realm of metabolism and self-development. He spent the last 25 years immersed in the study of strength and conditioning, hormonal metabolism and the psychology of change and success.

He is the founder and creator of the international health and fitness company, Metabolic Effect, and the author of several books including the best sellers, Metabolic Effect Diet and workout program Metabolic Aftershock. He has also contributed to both the exercise and sports nutrition chapters of The Textbook Of Natural Medicine.

Dr. Jade has recently started a new company, Jade Teta, LLC, that combines his medical and fitness knowledge with his expertise in self-development and mindset change.


In this interview we cover a lot around the different types of stress and differentiating good stress from the not so good, how to optimize your metabolism, figuring out what works best for our unique bodies, and how to exercise and move in a way that will leave you energized so that you can build a lifestyle around the concept of resting for greater success.

Some ways to reduce stress:

  • Orgasm
  • Cuddling
  • Lots of slow, relaxing walking
  • Classical music
  • Contrast showers (switching between hot and cold water)
  • Creative pursuits
  • Time spent with loved ones
  • Spa/Massages

Dr. Jade’s 4M Framework for Metabolism

1. Mindfulness: Workouts, walking, spa time, creative pursuits.

2. Movement: Slow, leisurely walks, everyday movement and activities.

3. Meals: “Cutting carbs down to nothing can be a stress for many people.” – Dr. Jade.

Women in particular often will not do as well on a very low carb diet, as our bodies as more likely to be stressed.

4. Metabolic: Exercise supplements

Dr. Jade’s entire philosophy revolves around living, eating, moving and exercising in a way that is enjoyable, simple, and can become natural and intuitive as you learn how to create a lifestyle that works for your unique body.

This entire episode is absolutely chock full of info and is a must listen for anyone looking to finally break the cycle of over-exercising, dieting, and spending years wanting to lose the same weight without success.

What you learn from Dr. Jade will change how you think about your metabolism and encourage you to start listening to your body more, because it’s trying to protect you.  Using the tools he gives will allow you to start working with your body rather than against it.

Can’t wait for you to listen!
