A Calorie Is a Calorie & A Calorie Is a Calorie Like Water Is Water

Listen



Note 1



There’s a reason you don’t fill your water bottle from a mud puddle!

Note 2



Your body doesn’t work like a balance scale.

Note 3



If taking in polluted air has a negative effect on your respiratory system, wouldn’t taking in polluted calories have a negative effect on your metabolic system?

SANE

SANE Calories Heal You, inSANE Calories Harm You & Eat More—SANEr

Listen



Note 1



SANE = Satiety, Aggression, Nutrition, Efficiency

Note 2



The more SANE a food is, the more it heals the brain, hormones, and digestive system while being satisfying, preventing overeating, and lowering the set-point.

Note 3



The more you understand the four calorie-quality factors, the more you will see how eating more high-quality SANE food is the only practical way to burn fat and boost health long term.

Step 4 of 6



Quiz

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

Q1

300 calories of vegetables is the same as 300 calories of pasta.



True

Try again.

False

Correct! 300 calories of spinach and pasta are the same on a balance scale because balance scales only measure quantity (they ignore quality). But your body is not a balance scale and quality/SANEity matters a lot!

Q2

100 calorie snack packs are healthy choices because they have so few calories in them.



True

Try again.

False

Correct! Knowing only the number of calories in something is useless. For example, a cigarette has no calories in it while an avocado has about 300 calories in it. Does this mean the cigarette is better for you than an avocado?

Q3

If you eat the exact same number of calories, but from different sources, the amount of fat on your body will not change.



True

Try again.

False

Correct! Decades of studies where people eat the exact same number of calories show that changing only the quality of the calories consumed has a dramatic impact on body fat levels.

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.
