Welcome to Episode 10 of the Dr. Mike Show.
This episode is the final part of our 3-part MetaShred diet deep dive series. This series was designed to give you an inside glimpse of the philosophy and mission behind the MetaShred diet and how it can help you lose weight quickly, safely, and effectively.
On today’s episode, I share lifestyle X-factors – the things you can do each day – to maximize fat loss. I explain what rate limiting steps are and how they impact your ability to lose weight and the connection between sleep deprivation, stress management, and your metabolism. I also explain how nutrition audibles, S.O.S. breathing techniques, and creating a “fat loss culture” can help you take the brakes off and remove rate-limiting steps that are preventing you from achieving your weight loss goals so you can accelerate your fat loss.

The Dr. Mike Show is Brought to You by Neuro Coffee
Neuro Coffee is a high octane brain supplement infused into great coffee.
It contains a patented extract from the coffee fruit, which has been clinically shown to increase levels of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) after taking. BDNF acts to grow and repair neurons in the brain and the body. As we age, BDNF decreases. Age related diseases of the brain (e.g. age related memory loss) are often associated with low levels of BDNF. Aging in general, stress, and lack of sleep also negatively impact BDNF.
Coffee drinkers never miss their morning cup of coffee, and now with Neuro Coffee you can enjoy that morning ritual even more knowing that it is helping your brain health.
