Calories – Should You Be Counting Them

Prior to 1945 European physicians knew that obesity was a direct result of eating too many carbohydrates and sugars.

By the 1970's, the American medical establishment convinced the world that the obesity problem was due to total calories. Therefore, the answer to obesity was a semi-starvation diet.

David Ludwig, MD, PhDThe problem with a semi-starvation diet, is that obese people eat no more in terms of total calories than people with normal fat composition.

It isn't the amount of calories you consume, but rather the quality of calories that matter most for staying healthy, losing weight, and maintaining those results.

David Ludwig, MD, PhD, an endocrinologist, researcher, and professor at Harvard Medical School, and author of the 2016 weight-loss book Always Hungry?" says that when you eat the right quality of calories and balance of foods, your body can do the rest on its own. Ludwig says there is no need to count calories or go by the numbers.

For over two decades, Dr. Ludwig has been at the forefront of research into weight control.

His groundbreaking studies show that overeating doesn’t make you fat, but rather the process of getting fat makes you overeat.



For Dr. Ludwig, one of health’s most fundamental truths is a 2,000-year-old quote by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine: “Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food.”

Jonathan Bailor, author of the book,The Calorie MythJonathan Bailor, author of the book, The Calorie Myth, says that counting calories leads to failure 95.4% of the time and often leaves people fatter.

Bailor says that many menopausal women consume 1,000 calories a day and yet, they still can’t lose weight. He says, "If you starve yourself, your body slows down your metabolism and burns muscle rather than fat.

And when you start eating normally again after a restrictive diet, you gain back more weight because you have a pokey metabolism that can’t do its job".

After over 15 years of research and collaboration with some of the top academics, doctors, scientists, and thinkers in the field of health and wellness, Jonathan Bailor has developed a revolutionary new model for weight loss and lifelong health.

He exposes the fundamental flaw upon which the diet industry has been built: the “eat less + exercise more = weight loss” equation simply doesn’t add up says Bailor.

Who Is Jonathan Bailor

Jonathan Bailor is a New York Times bestselling author and the world’s leading wellness engineer who specializes in using modern science and technology to simplify health.

Bailor has collaborated with top scientists and technology companies for more than 15 years to analyze and apply over 1,300 studies.

After analyzing and applying these 1,300 studies with the new science of fat loss, food, and fitness, Bailor explains how eating more of the right kinds of foods and exercising less (but at a higher intensity) is actually the key to burning fat, healing the body's hormones, boosting metabolism, and creating long-term weight loss.

As Dr. Ludwig says, so does Bailor, that eating lots of high-quality foods like whole plants and nutritious proteins, only then can the body achieve a natural, healthy weight on its own.
