In this paradigm-shifting diet book, Jonathan Bailor explains how cutting-edge science supports a radically different approach to weight loss than the one we've accepted for years, and offers a new and effective model for both immediate weight loss and long-term, sustainable weight management: one in which calories burned and consumed is irrelevant.

In this revolutionary weight-loss program informed by more than 1,200 scientific studies, fitness and diet expert Jonathan Bailor offers concrete evidence that the calorie-counting model of weight loss doesn"t work. In fact, cutting-edge science supports a radically different approach to weight loss and health, proving that by focusing on food and exercise

quality-rather than calorie

quantity-you can burn fat and boost health more easily and enjoyably that you ever thought possible.

The human body does not recognize all calories as equal. Some foods are used to repair tissue, boost brain power, and fuel our metabolism-while others are stored as fat. In

The Calorie Myth, Bailor shows us how eating

more of the right kinds of foods and exercising

less, but at a higher intensity, is the true formula for burning fat.

Why Because eating high-quality foods-like whole plants and nutritious proteins-balances the hormones that regulate our metabolism. When we eat these foods, our bodies naturally maintain a healthy weight. But when we eat sugar, starches, processed fats, and other poor quality foods, the body"s regulatory system becomes "clogged" and prevents us from burning extra calories. Translation: Those extra 10 pounds aren't the result of eating too much . . . they're the result from eating the wrong foods.
