Brent, how did you get involved in the Metabolic Health movement, and why did you create Metabolic Me? I don’t see any miraculous Before/After weight loss pics of you like every other nutrition program out there have. What’s your story?”
Oh, I do have Before and After pictures. But they’re not your typical outer transformation shocker. My Before and After pictures look more like this:
That’s right. I was sick on the inside. I was told “Nothing’s wrong with you, it’s all in your head,” but knew deep down something did NOT feel right. I tried every diet and exercise program out there but nothing worked. And as my health got progressively worse, I went through a divorce, almost lost my 2 young children, and had to quit my full time job. But there’s a silver lining, isn’t there?
Of course. Health issues always start on the inside. The real transformation begins and ends right there. And what I discovered through all of my searching is closer than you might think.
I know a lot of you out there know exactly what I’m talking about here. You’ve got a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, or maybe even a crazy roommate who gets sucked into reading a few too many holistic health articles and books and the next thing you know, they throw away the microwave because it’s so dangerous for your health.
Microwaves are not safe! They change the molecular structure of your food and then your body can’t digest it right and then you get cancer and die.” - Anonymous health nut
Yeah yeah… so I’m the guy writing these nutty holistic health articles now. But before I was this guy teaching about microwaves, I was THAT GUY who threw a massive tantrum when my then-wife, Niki Driscoll, threw away the microwave years ago. But little did I know that small health and lifestyle changes then could have saved me years of pain and illness later. Read the whole article »
Is change a process, an overnight phenomenon, or a little bit of both, depending on which Stage of Change you are in? More and more we see new fad diets and exercise programs promising immediate results. Why do some people stick to it and others fall off the wagon?
Individuality of course! But individuality can extend beyond your metabolism and into the domain of your will power, or more specifically:
Your chances of making a permanent lifestyle change can depend on the Stage of Change you are currently in.”
Let’s move through all 6 Stages of Change, from Pre-Contemplation to Termination, in this new short video. Which one are you in?
I experienced all 6 Stages of Change during my own healing process, and man did it get ugly for a while, especially when I got stuck at the Contemplation Stage, was overly ambitious at the Action Stage, and totally sabotaged myself during the Maintenance Stage (a.k.a Relapse).

Does what we eat have an impact on our seasonal allergies? Spring is here, and for some it’s a blessing to stop and smell the roses, and for others it’s a curse laced with the ball and chain of an Allegra and Afrin dependency.
So do you really have to lock yourself indoors all season shooting drugs up your nose like a cocaine addict? Or can you break free from the sinus-stuffed-sneezy prison simply by making small changes to your diet?
The answer is yes (to the second question). And it no longer has to be a choice between which drugs to take, but rather which foods to eat.
You see, this isn’t just nutritional theory. I’m a living example of going from allergy shots to allergy free. Read the whole article »

"I’m 5’4″ and upon beginning MT my weight was around 160 and body fat likely well above the 30% mark. I can proudly say now that my weight is 124 and body fat is down to 14.9%!! That’s all great in terms of numbers but more importantly, my cravings are gone, my energy is stable and my life is not consumed by worrying about what diet I’m going to make an attempt at next. Years ago I never thought achieving this level of health was possible!”
"I was asked questions that no one had ever asked me before in a nutrition program like, “How does this food make you feel when you eat it?” and “What do YOU need in order to be healthy, feel energized, feel well?” All of these things focused so much on me as an individual. It’s a new way of looking at things."

"These small changes made a huge difference on how I felt throughout the day. It’s so nice now that you don’t feel sick when you get home after going out to eat. You shouldn’t be punished for that!"
"This program is just so different. It’s not about points. It’s not about calories. It’s about the food is good. And once you do it, you’ve got it down. You go into a restaurant, you know exactly what you can have."
"The changes already, in everything, in energy level, in awareness, in size… The numbers are great, everyone wants to lose weight, but the difference in how you feel is amazing. I’m on a good road. It’s nice to feel this way."
