*Adapted from: Keoni and Jade Teta’s (MetabolicEffect.com, The New ME Diet) protocols

**For severe metabolic damage stick with Eat Less Exercise Less until metabolism starts to respond with fat loss and HEC changes.

 ***To find the right balance (how much carb/protein), measure cravings, energy, hunger and fat loss.

****To repair severe adrenals or thyroid damage, expect it to take 3-15 months although when you see metabolic response (in as little as  3 months) you can start to take the calories and exercise up slowly.
