A Calorie Is Sometimes Not A Calorie

Here’s what you need to know…

  1. Anyone that says calories don’t matter has zero credibility. But anyone who claims calories are all that matter has even less credibility.
  2. Balance the metabolism first, then worry about calories if needed. Hunger, energy, and cravings (HEC) are your keys to understanding your metabolism and working with it, rather than against it.
  3. The combo of sugar, fat, and salt will short circuit your appetite centers, turning that “cheat meal” into a cheat week, or worse.
  4. The idea that calorie excess always leads to fat gain and calorie reduction always leads to fat loss is not accurate.
  5. The standard “eat less, exercise more” approach to dieting leads to about 20-50% loss of lean tissue.
  6. The quality of food you eat can directly affect the future efficiency of your metabolism.
