How to Burn Fat for the Holidays with Dr. Stephanie Estima


Today’s episode is a throwback to the Holidays of 2021, where if you were listening to the Better Show, we hope you were able to enact Dr. Stephanie Estima’s advice for maintaining your diet goals. If you’ve ever gone on a diet and failed (who hasn’t), it’s not because of your body. It’s because of your mind. Dr. Stephanie reveals the one mind-blowing neurological principle that can make or break your diet success. She’ll reveal what happens in the brain and why most people throw in the towel and say F it to their diets. Then, she’ll teach you how to “hack” your brain’s pleasure centre to forever quit that toxic behaviour and get your health on track.

I’m Dr. Stephanie

Part geek, part magic, and all the way passionate about being a well-lived woman.

I want to throw my grandkids in the air in my 70’s. I want to be squatting even more weight than I am now, and putting my OWN luggage in the overhead bin. Sound like weird goals? For me these are just some of the little things that represent a life well-lived.

My health is MY job – I’ll be damned if I rely on luck, ‘good genes’ or a cocktail of drugs that over promise and under deliver.

The Betty Body is my first book-baby, and a collection of what I’ve learned after thousands of clinical hours, hundreds of conversations with the world’s top experts, and most importantly…

This book is an outline of what took ME from “rock-bottom health” at 38, to being my own version of a Betty in my perimenopausal mid 40’s. A woman who is physically strong, full of energy, enjoys mental clarity, great sex and a joyful family life. Is it all roses? Of course not. But I have the stamina and tools to deal with the push and pull of life so that it doesn’t turn into chronic stress.

I want this for you too. Let’s go Bettys!
