TO STAY FAT– KEEP ON COUNTING CALORIES/ TO STAY FLAT– START COUNTING CARBOHYDRATES!

Earlier, I mentioned how just “eating less” and calorie counting is a trap. It keeps you fat. Looking around us, you find out that; the world is full of fat calorie counters. We’re frighteningly locked into the idea that in reducing it’s calories, they only count. I feel it’s something I need to talk about. “Why is it so?” you may ask. It is mainly because in order to free ourselves of this old and deadly over-simplification, we need to examine still more the evidence that the calorie gospel is a hoax.

Such reflex of thinking like; “Look, I’m counting calories. I’m a good dieter. I’m bound to lose.” will eventually change to; “Look, I’m counting carbohydrates– because it is carbohydrates far more than calories that count.”

By the time this new reflex is installed in your subconscious, you’ll have shed pounds and years and tiredness. Whatever your age is, you’ll begin to feel like a reborn person. But changing reflexes takes time, new knowledge and open mindedness. Are you ready? If not, you better be.

We know that low calorie diets don’t touch the primary cause of most overweight-disturbed carbohydrate.

EVEN THE MEDICAL PROFESSION ADMITS THAT LOW CALORIE DIETS HAVEN’T WORKED–

As common as it is, we’ve all been exposed to a great number of reducing diets, but there are really only two basic categories: those that depend on reducing the total intake of calories and those that depend on the reduction of carbohydrate intake, where calories needn’t be counted.

FEAR OF THE FAT? Here is a little something to confirm these studies;

I know, and have had conversations with few overweight patients who habitually eat as little or less than normal. My younger sister for example, In her experience, she doesn’t consider the type of food that goes into her mouth. Her taste bud accepts anything sweet and sugary. But today, I’m glad to say that she has eventually overcomed this habit and is careful of what she takes. So stop believing this calorie gospel. Start asking questions about the sacred cow– the calorie.

WHAT IS A CALORIE?

This particular word has been used throughout this post and many of you may be asking what it is. A calorie is a unit of heat (or energy). Just as inches are units of length, calories measure the amount of heat (and therefore energy) a particular food or drink will provide.

Specifically, it is the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of one gram of water from zero to one degree centigrade. Multiply by a thousand and you have the kilocalorie– or the calorie as we know it today.
