One of the biggest myths about weight loss is that it’s “all about calories.”
Every one of us has been indoctrinated with the idea that we get fat because we eat too many calories. That has been the mantra of the diet establishment for the last 40 years.
We’ve all been told the same thing: If you eat more calories than you burn, you will gain weight. If you burn more calories than you eat, you will lose weight.
Except it’s not entirely true.
Calories do count. But when it comes to gaining and losing body fat, they are far from the whole story.
One of the many truths that emerged from the 30-plus hours of in-depth interviews with the world’s greatest experts in my upcoming Truth About Fat Loss Summit
was this: A calorie is not just a calorie. All calories are not created equal.
Time and again, you’ll notice this theme coming up in the interviews I did with the experts you’ll hear on the summit. And it’s no wonder. The notion that it’s all about calories is one of the most obsolete in the field of weight loss, even though it continues to be the “official position” of many so-called health experts and establishment organizations.
The truth is it’s not all about calories. But it is all about hormones.
One of the great discoveries about nutrition in the past couple of decades has been the fact that food has a hormonal effect.
That’s right: Food “turns on” certain hormones, and “turns off” others.
Many of these hormones — like insulin — are deeply involved in the fat burning equation. If the food you’re eating is stimulating fat storage hormones instead of fat burning hormones, you’re going to gain weight.
That’s just one of the many eye-opening concepts we’ll explore in depth in the upcoming Truth About Fat Loss Summit
Best of all, you’ll learn what to do about it.
Remember, you can listen to every one of the interviews absolutely free from April 25 to May 2.
I hope you’ll join me. The information is fantastic, and the summit is going to be awesome!
