“Should I count calories?”
“How many calories should I eat per day?”
“Can I eat anything as long as it fits my macros?”.
These are common questions we hear every day and it’s sad people are still confused after all these years. The short answer to that is…no, calories are not created equal and how much fat you store is up to how much sugar you eat.
Sugar Makes You Store Fat
I’ll give you an example so you can see the picture…
If we compare someone who eats a 2000 calories low carb meal that is high in protein and good fats, to someone who eats 2000 calories worth of sugar and refined carbs…it’s a no-brainer that one will gain more weight than the other.
Because sugar releases the fat storing hormone.
“Insulin shunts sugar to fat. Insulin makes fat. More insulin, more fat. Period.” – Dr. Robert Lustig.
Jason Wittrock had played a huge part in my weight loss.
Before this video, I was counting calories to the T and not losing any weight. The effort I was putting in was so much greater than my results.
In this VDO he visually shows you simply why calorie counting makes no sense and why not all calories are created equal.
A very eye-opening clip that is really easy to understand.
“It’s sad when people don’t know the truth. They run themselves into the ground at the gym and every time they eat a meal, they think every bite is going to work against them.” – Jason Wittrock
