Podcast 238: Seriously, Stop Counting Calories.
by Sean Croxton
It doesn’t work.
Never has worked. Never will work.
Okay, maybe it’ll work for a little bit — maybe a few weeks or months. But the weight always comes back.
And then some.
No matter how many times we white-knuckle our way through yet another doomed fat loss program, the strategy seldom changes…
Eat less. Exercise more.
But what if I told you that this strategy is the cause of your weight gain, not the cure?
The truth is that the trainers and gurus who convinced you that fat loss was a math problem probably skipped science class. Because what the science is saying something completely different…
It says that when you take in less calories, you burn less calories.
It says that when you exercise more, you want to eat more food.
It says that 70-percent of the “weight” you lost wasn’t even fat tissue.
It says that the less you eat, the higher your Body Mass Index (BMI).
It says that we’ve been doing it all wrong.
