As the name suggests, we are about one of the most elusive things in the diet world. Common Sense.

Calorie restriction has not worked in the last 50 years and never will. We have been restricting more and moving more than we ever have yet we are more sick and more fat. Fitness and diet are a $3.7 TRILLION Dollar a year industry yet nearly 1/3 of the worlds population is obese or overweight compared to 13% in 1970. Guess how much the fitness industry was making in 1970? Not enough to even be able to find any info on.
We believe that health comes from giving the body what it needs to thrive and that is adequate energy and real food. What we call eating adequate energy is eating to your TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure). You can read more about how to figure out your TDEE here: What is TDEE?
We believe that the majority of that energy should come from Healthy Fats.
The current science points towards the idea that hormones dictate weight loss and not a magic number called a calorie. We don’t “burn” food. We break it down chemically and metabolize it into energy of various forms. We can actually waste energy if we take in more than we need We are not a closed loop machine. We are a complex organism. A great video here about how insulin allows us to waste energy: How Insulin can allow energy waste
If you have no interest in broadening your perspective and losing your dogma, kindly move along. There are many other blogs out there for you. No need to be here. We will gladly let you speak so long as it is in good will and not demeaning to anyone. We expect the same from you in return.
