In this broadcast, Donna Reish, author of over 100 curriculum books for students, blogger, weight-loss coach-in-training, and Intermittent Fasting teacher, goes where few IF peeps go: the calorie problem.
She opens with a study that shows just because “experts” say it doesn’t make it true. (Especially when other experts/researchers say something different!) You have to bring together research, your observations of those around you, and your own personal experience.
Donna delves into how the thought that calories have no bearing on weight loss (or health!) can be dangerous because consistently overeating can cause little weight loss, health concerns, unnecessary expense, and more.
Then she introduces fifteen clues that show that maybe you really do believe in calories—just a little. And what we should do with this information (i.e. eat less overall!)
These clues range from watching the calories you burn on devices to cutting back portion sizes to your past history of losing weight while decreasing calories to eliminating nuts or other fattening foods, and more. She emphasizes the importance of defining what you mean when you say “calories don’t work” or “calories don’t matter.”
