How is this scientific knowledge useful? Three ways:1. A calorie is not a calorie, considering that a calorie of protein is five steps away from body fat—convert into amino acids, convert to glucose, meet up with insulin, transform to fatty acids, and hook up with glycerol-3-phospate—while a calorie of fa
t is only two steps away—convert into fatty acids and hook up with glycerol-3-phospate. 2. It is impossible to store glucose as body fat without enough insulin. inSANE starches and sweets trigger a flood of insulin in our body. That’s one of the reasons we should shy away from them. 3. No body fat gets stored without glycerol-3-phospate. Guess where we get the most glycerol-3-phospate? InSANE starches and sweets. Put this all together and it gets clearer why eating more—but smarter—works while eating less does not. When people eat less, they are still overeating since their metabolism slows down. Additionally, they have plenty of insulin and glycerol-3-phospate thanks to the inSANE low-quality starches and sweets they continue eating. Overeating plus insulin and glycerol-3-phospate means new body fat.

It’s not always about the number of calories, but it’s the quality of the calories that really matters :)

110. Common Weight Loss Mistakes.wmv (by AskARealExpert)

Nutrition is NOT black and white. There is no right or wrong way. One of the most significant blocks to change is thinking black and white. The world is gray and so is fat loss and nutrition. This is why looking for definitive food lists, exact recipes and in depth meal plans are not going to serve you long term. This is equivalent to being given a fish versus learning to fish except in this case, you are given someone else favorite type of fish, versus learning to find catch and discover your own favorite fish. You might think meals plans and food lists and recipes are a short cut, but in the end you still must find what works for you. You have a choice, jump around from diet to diet and meal plan to meal plan, or learn to design one for yourself. Stop playing the weight loss game. Metabolic Effect
