There are many things that are fundamentally wrong with the notion that weight loss is all about calories in vs. calories out. Above you can watch a talk by Dr. David Ludwig where he explains why that is the case.
Some key takeaways?
- Body weight is not under conscious control – it’s under biological control.
- When we try to eat less and run more, the body responds by either making us hungrier or by slowing down our metabolism.
- Foods rich in processed carbohydrates are especially fattening.
- If we want to lose weight, we’re better off improving the quality of our diet (meaning a diet with few carbohydrates), rather than reducing calories.
