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 Reboot wins their choice from a large (and growing) prize pool!
30-Day Metabolic Reboot - The Why
Why We're Doing This Together
So, why 30 days? Why a Reboot? What kind of metabolic miracles can you expect over the next month?
In my experience, after working with nearly 1000 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 Reboot 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 Reboot - The How
Let’s talk the tactics of the Metabolism Reboot. Here's what the Reboot's 30 days look like:
Every day you'll receive an email. It will contain the educational lesson 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 Coaching via Facebook
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 group is 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 Reboot 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 1000 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 Reboot: 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 10 points.
More bonus points opportunities will randomly occur throughout the challenge!
The points system exists for one reason, and one reason only: to keep you engaged. But what I've found is... once Rebooters start engaging with each other, they can't stop! You'll be amazed at how quickly the 30 days will fly by, and how many pals you made during it.
So what can you do with all of these points?
You can win stuff!
The prizes always change every Reboot round, and depend on how many folks enroll. The more who enroll, the more I can make it rain prizes. The current prize list for the next round of the Reboot looks like this:
8 Weeks of Metabolic Mentorship with Me ($950 value)
A me-sized chiliPad ($600+ value)
An Oura Ring ($350 value)
8 Weeks To Effortless: SELF-GUIDED ($199 value)
Win Back Your Reboot Enrollment Fee ($69 value)
That's over $3000 in prizes!
(More prizes may be announced.)
BONUS: Lifetime Access
Gain Lifetime Access to the private eat.simple Community
Anyone who participates in the Reboot lifetime access to my private Facebook community, where all current and former eat.simple clients commune with one another and keep the metabolic education rolling. Wheeee! Free learnings, forever!
All dollar values are in Canadian funds.
