How To Eat More Without Gaining Weight with Reverse Dieting



In this eye-opening episode, Dr. Stephanie reveals how to eat more without gaining weight through “reverse dieting.” Mind-blowing? Tune in to discover the scientific data behind this concept. She dives into the problem of undereating and how to identify if you’re doing it, the correct balance between energy and metabolism, and the factors that control “calories-in-calories-out.” She discusses the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and metabolic adaptation. Finally, Dr. Stephanie gives you a roadmap for applying the “reverse dieting” framework, what to consider, and how to track your progress.

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!
