Losing Weight by Breaking the Weight Loss Myths

Rebel Medicine Founder Maleen Avery and Anna Paulich Share How They Lost the Weight

Notable Quotes

“It’s mind-blowing to see the diseases we thought were irreversible, that were chronic and progressive, were preventable and completely reversible, and you can do it very simply by changing what you’re putting into your mouth.”
Maleen Avery

“There’s really nothing wrong with eating your own belly fat for breakfast. I tell my patients, ‘When you’re fasting, you’re snacking on that belly fat, so go for it.’”
                                                – Maleen Avery


Episode Summary

If you’re someone who has been trying to lose weight for years, then there’s a good chance that you’ve come across tons and tons of diets, supplements, and exercise regimes to shed off the pounds. Don’t forget the classic, “Eat less, move more,” from the doctors, too. But anyone who  has been through this would know that none of those work.
