The Obesity Epidemic Disproves the Set-Point & Common Sense to the Rescue

Listen



Note 1



Why isn’t the average American gaining 104 lbs of fat per year despite consuming enough calories to theoretically do so?

Note 2



Does the diabetes epidemic disprove that the body works to automatically regulate blood sugar?

Note 3



Does a cold house prove that thermostats don’t exist?

The Obesity Epidemic Supports the Set-Point & Embrace the Set-Point and Sinks

Listen



Note 1



Animal reverse liposuction, human overfeeding, twin studies, and more support the set-point.

Note 2



When our brains, hormones, and digestive system are broken down by low-quality food, we become “clogged” and our set-point rises.

Note 3



Set yourself free by thinking of your body like a sink. Chronic overflow is caused by clogs. Clogs are caused by the wrong QUALITY of inputs.

Step 4 of 6



Quiz

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

Q1

Your set-point is genetically pre-determined. There is nothing you can do to change it.



True

Try again.

False

Correct! Your genetics make up only a little over half of what determines your set-point. The set-point can certainly be changed. Anyone struggling with their weight has changed their set-point (they’ve increased it).

Q2

If you put A LOT of water into AN UNCLOGGED SINK, the water level will rise and stay high.



True

Try again.

False

Correct! The water may rise for a moment, but it will go back down. More water in means more water out.

Q3

If you put A LITTLE water into a CLOGGED SINK, the water level will rise and stay high.



True

Correct! Any quantity of water in can cause an overflow if the sink has lost its ability to drain. Similarly, any quantity of calories can cause an overflow of fat if your body has lost its ability to burn fat. This is why you must focus on healing the system instead of just putting less into it.

False

Try again.

Step 5 of 6
