Join The Challenge.
The details. In plain English.
Short-duration online health challenges can be a little sad.
We sign up with the best intentions, but then life gets in the way, and we disengage.
Not this time.
For starters, we'll be slightly up in your grill and it'll be hard to ignore us. You'll get your daily lesson from us every day via email. This will be followed by a lot of deep discussions in our private Facebook group. We'll nudge you, tag you, do whatever it takes to keep you connected to us.
In fact, this challenge will literally reward you for being engaged. We're using a points system to keep track of who engages the most with the content and support we're offering you. Point collection starts NOW: Just for signing up for the program, you'll get 5 points. From there, you can earn more points by opening our daily emails (every day for 30 days and not one day longer), and by participating in group conversation on Facebook.
The Rebooters with the most points at the end of the 30 Day Re-BOOT wins their choice from a large (and growing) prize pool!
Even more details: eat.simple has not been sponsored in any way by any of these listed footwear brands.
The pair of boots will be chosen by the winner, paid for by eat.simple outright, and shipped directly to
the winner. The prize includes the cost of shipping (total prize: $250 CAD including boots + shipping.)
Arrangements to share shipping costs will be made to residents of any other country, but you'll still get your prize!

30-Day Metabolic Re-BOOT - The Why
Why We're Doing This Together
So, why 30 days? Why a Re-BOOT? What kind of metabolic miracles can you expect over the next month?
In my experience, after working with nearly 500 one-on-one clients, we can move metabolic mountains in 30 days. It takes a re-education; an unlearning and then relearning of health concepts involving food, movement, and lifestyle. My all-time favourite metabolic hacks are laid out in this 30-day program, delivered daily.
First, what is "metabolism?"
You may only know metabolism as being a mystical, cosmic process that either moves "fast" (yay!) or "slow" (boo). Please allow me to offer the world's fastest clarification on that for you:
Metabolism is the system of the body that decides how fuel is used. Is the food you eat effectively taken up into the cells and used as fuel to provide energy for the body? Or is it carried away and stored as fat? And then, if that happens, metabolism also is responsible for determining how and when (and if!) that stored fat is mobilized out of storage and into the cells, to be used as fuel.
Maybe you go to the gym to "burn fat." Maybe you carefully select certain foods to help you "burn fat."
I'm here to tell you that you can't and won't "burn fat" until that metabolic process is brought online.
That's what the 30-Day Metabolism Re-BOOT will do.
Understanding all of this, you can probably recognize that your metabolism determines how much fat you have on your body, how readily that fat can be accessed and burned, and also directly impacts how much energy you have. It impacts how your body feels, and how you feel in your body.
The fast metabolism/slow metabolism paradigm is a bothersome to me. It's oversimplified and dead wrong. I want you to forget about what speed you think your metabolism is destined to run. In my opinion and experience, we are all designed to be perfect, optimal, fuel-efficient units. Every one of us can have the energy and the waistline that we desire.
Your metabolism just needs a little... reboot!
The Side Effects of a Woke Metabolism
When your metabolism finally wakes up, you can expect a few great side effects:
I know this sounds generic, but almost every person I've ever worked with has come to me describing themselves as "not feeling as good as I know I can." It's a hard feeling to put your arms around, but if you have a sense of inner knowing that you can feel better than you do now, this will be the program for you.
Some of the "better feelings" my clients have reported include:
Level energy throughout the day: no more 3pm slumps
Better sleeps, which results in improved feelings of vitality and vigour throughout the day
A clearer mind: Your brain can step up to the plate because it's more nourished and supported by fuel
Improved moods; reduced mood swings: A broken metabolism shows up in a lot of ways, and one of those ways is low-grade anxiety
When we start giving our body the fuel it is perfectly designed to use, one of the things it rewards us with is some pretty great water weight loss. In my opinion, water weight loss still counts! Your pants will feel looser. Your coworkers may comment on your face looking slimmer. You'll like what you see in the mirror. There ain't nothing wrong with that!
Look. Any person or program who promises epic weight loss in 30 days should be treated with some suspicion. I don't like or trust fast and dramatic weight loss. I prefer it slow and low.
But weight loss (or, as I prefer to call it, "fat loss") is, in my opinion, an eventual inevitability of a metabolism that is finally ticking like a clock, maybe for the first time since your 20s, when it was soooo easy to maintain a leaner body.
Some of my clients experience double-digit weight loss in a month; some do not experience any. But what's important is that we're taking a healing approach to your metabolism, and once that system of the body has been rebooted, it will begin tapping into the fat stores that have been seemingly stuck on your body for the last few years. One of the most incredible benefits of my metabolic approach to fat loss is the long term, consistent loss of excess body fat. You get a little leaner, year over year...
Although it's not fast and dramatic, I sure don't mind going down a pants size every year; it's a helluva lot better than going the other way!
30-Day Metabolic Re-BOOT - The How
Let’s talk the tactics of the Metabolism Re-BOOT. Here's what your next 30 days will look like:
Every day you'll receive an email, kind of like this one. It will contain the education and task of the day. You might not always be able to execute on that task on that particular day. That's okay... Get to it when you can. Each of the daily tasks are meant to layer overtop of each other in a particular sort of way, so as long as you do your best to implement what's delivered as soon as you can, you're going to feel like a totally different person in just 30 days' time.
Some of the tasks are big — like asking you to clean out your pantry and fridge and get rid of a few "food groups." Some of the tasks are small — like focusing on your breath for just 5 minutes. They're all important, and all tied to improving your metabolic function.
After 30 days, you will be unsubscribed from the daily email list, and will not receive any more communications from me… unless you want to! If so, you can sign up for my incredibly irregular email list.
Daily Facebook Support
Every single day, inside our private Facebook group (which you'll want to join asap), I’ll be hosting a Facebook Live to talk more deeply about the task at hand. You can ask questions during that Live broadcast, or after, when watching the replay. You can commune with your fellow eat.simplers. The Facebook posts we provide are designed to supplement the daily emails, so you’ll want to be in on it.
I don’t know if you know this about me, but I’m all about simple.
Literally all you need to be successful in this re-BOOT is an email account and a Facebook account. You don’t need a food scale. You don’t need a FitBit. You don’t need to download any food tracking or menu apps. You don’t need starting measurements or before and after pics (though, go for it if you want to!). This is it.
After coaching nearly 500 one-on-one clients I know that the only tools you need to be successful are: EDUCATION, ACCOUNTABILITY and SUPPORT. That’s what you’re going to get from me, and from this challenge.
30-Day Metabolism RE-BOOT: The Goodies
I’m incentivizing you with gifts and prizes.
That’s right. I don’t want you to sign up for this thing, slap $69 cheap Canadian dollars on your credit card, and then forget about it. The way I see it, the moment you signed up, you made a promise to yourself that you were going to put yourself in the spotlight for 30 tiny little days. I want to help you keep your promise.
So I’m rewarding engagement. Here’s how you can collect points so you can win prizes:
Just for signing up you get 10 points. Whoop! You’re already on the Leaderboard!*
If you open the daily email — and yes, we’ll be checking! — you get 1 point.
If you comment on the posts that the eat.simple team creates in the Facebook Group (it could be a post, a poll or a Live) within 48 hours of the original posting, you get 2 points. (2 points maximum per person, per post… so you can’t rifle off a bunch of spam points to track up the points!)
Share or post a meaningful** post on the private Facebook group and get 5 points.
Post on one of your peer’s meaningful posts in the private Facebook group and get 2 points. Same rules apply: only 2 points awarded per person per post. If you engage in a solid back and forth discussion you will only be granted 2 points for that particular post, even if you post ten times within it… make sense?)
Periodically, throughout our 30 days, you’ll be asked to complete a check-in at random intervals. If you complete one of our periodic check-ins, you get 8 points.
More points opportunities will randomly occur throughout the challenge!
The challenge officially ends on March 1st. Your last chance to gain points is March 3rd. No points will be counted after that date. Please allow the eat.simple team about a week to complete the final points tallies. Winners will be announced in the Facebook group, and will be individually alerted via email.
*There is no Leaderboard. The eat./simple team will tally up the points after the 30 days has ended to ensure that everyone has had a chance to earn their points. We will not be able to offer up running tallies of how everyone is doing, points-wise… so just make sure to engage as much as possible and earn those points! You never know who might be leading, or how far behind (or ahead!) you are.
**”Meaningfulness” will be determined by eat.simple staff. We want to reward engagement, not spam. Spammy posts will be deleted.
So what can you do with all of these points?
You can win stuff!
I have a few grand prizes, a handful of secondary prizes, and heck… more prizes may come in as we go along.
