The End of Calorie Counting

Step 1 of 6



Warm-Up

It’s all good if you don’t know the answers. You will get another shot at this quiz later in the lesson.

Q1

Researchers have shown that obesity is caused by a “biological disorder” rather than “a lack of will power.”



True

Correct! You are about to learn exactly why.

False

Try again and don’t worry…today’s lesson will clear this up.

Q2

Researchers have disproven that the more you eat the more you weigh.



True

Correct! You are about to learn exactly why.

False

Try again and don’t worry…today’s lesson will clear this up.

Q3

Researchers have noted that healing the “precise and powerful biologic system that maintains body weight within a relatively narrow range” is more effective than attempting to starve that system.



True

Correct! You are about to learn exactly why.

False

Try again and don’t worry…today’s lesson will clear this up.

Do Complex Math During Dinner & Calorie Counting is Not Supported By Science

Listen



Note 1



Calorie Counting is and always has been a theory. That theory has now been disproven.

Note 2



Calorie Counting is closer to an eating disorder than it is to an effective weight management strategy.

Note 3



Every applicable study ever conducted that considered calorie counting has disproven it.

Enjoy More SANE Food During Dinner & Your Body Balancing Itself is Supported By Science

Listen



Note 1



It is an irrefutable scientific fact that a healthy person does not have to worry about regulating life-sustaining bodily functions 24/7/365.

Note 2



We don’t have to “decide” to take in or burn off an appropriate number of calories. Our brain will do that automatically once we heal ourselves.

Note 3



Long-term success comes from lower the “relatively narrow range” where Dr. Friedman tells us our “precise and powerful biologic system” operates.

Step 4 of 6



Quiz

Remember these? Give them one more try now that you’ve spent a few minutes going SANE.

Q1

Researchers have shown that obesity is caused by a “biological disorder” rather than “a lack of will power.”



True

Correct!  In the journal Cell Metabolism, Brent Wisse, MD of the Diabetes and Obesity Center of Excellence at the University of Washington noted: “Prior to the discovery of the adipocyte [fat cell] hormone leptin, obesity was thought to result more from a lack of will power than from an underlying biological disorder. Now, 15 years after leptin’s discovery, a much different picture of how obesity occurs is beginning to emerge.”

False

Try again.

Q2

Researchers have disproven that the more you eat the more you weigh.



True

Correct! In 1990, Wayne Miller, PhD of the Department of Kinesiology at Indiana University conducted a study involving calorie counting and concluded: “There was no relationship between energy intake and adiposity [body fat].”

False

Try again.

Q3

Researchers have noted that healing the “precise and powerful biologic system that maintains body weight within a relatively narrow range” is more effective than attempting to starve that system.



True

Correct! Jeffrey M. Friedman, MD, PhD, head of the Laboratory of Molecular Genetics at Rockefeller University in New York, has demonstrated this for more than a decade and goes so far as to say that there is “something metabolically different about [overweight] individuals results in obesity independent of their caloric intake.”

False

Try again.

Step 5 of 6



Support

The number of people keeping you accountable is your #1 predictor of long-term success.

Sharing your SANEity enables you to enjoy instant accountability and support from your social networks. The science is 100% clear: The more you share your SANEity, the more success you will enjoy.
