Lowering Your Food Intake & Ditch Deprivation Dieting

Listen



Note 1



Think of your set-point body weight like your set-point body temperature: it rises and stays elevated when something is wrong with your body.

Note 2



Both body weight and temperature can be violently lowered temporarily by depriving yourself of energy.

Note 3



Violent deprivation-based approaches do nothing about the root cause and do more harm than good long term.

Step 3 of 6



SANE

Lowering Your Set-Point & Burn Fat Automatically, Always

Listen



Note 1



When the brain becomes inflamed, when the digestive system breaks down, and when metabolism-related hormones can no longer do their job, the brain tells the body to take in more energy than it needs and then doesn’t automatically burn an appropriate amount off.

Note 2



Both human and animal studies show that eating more high-quality SANE foods can reverse the brain, digestive, and hormonal breakdown that increases the set-point.

Note 3



If cutting calories ever works, it works because the amount of inSANE low-quality substances eaten is reduced. However, if these inSANE “foods” are not replace with high-quality SANE foods, the diet can’t be sustained and therefore fails more than 95% of the time.

Step 4 of 6



Quiz

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

Q1

Obese animals given an unlimited quantity of higher-quality food return to a healthy weight and stay that way long term.



True

Correct! You can review the amazing studies proving this in Chapter 3 of The Calorie Myth.

False

Try again.

Q2

Processed starch-, sugar-, and trans-fat-based edible products literally break the brain, digestive system, and hormones much like cigarettes break the lungs.



True

Correct! This is part of why focusing on calories is so harmful. It’s everything other than calories that harms (or heals) your body, not the calories themselves. Remember, cigarettes have zero calories in them. That doesn’t mean they are harmless.

False

Try again.

Q3

It is practically impossible to chronically eat too many calories while living a SANE lifestyle.



True

Correct! If you eat double-digit servings of non-starchy vegetables and three to six servings of nutrient dense protein per day, it would be painful to consume too many calories.

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.
