Stop Following This TERRIBLE Diet Advice

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

I was watching a show last night where a so-called nutritionist told viewers to “eat less and exercise more” in order to lose weight.

You’ve probably heard that plenty of times yourself.

What a bunch of bull…..

It is hard to believe that people are still spouting this garbage.

The reason why nutritionists keep telling us this nonsense is because they’re thinking of our bodies as machines.

I’m going to show you just how wrong they are.

But, more importantly, I’m going to show you what is REALLY takes to lose that extra weight… and keep it off for good.

The first thing you have to understand is what a calorie is.

I’m not going to dive into all the complexities of calorie science, but it helps for you to know how scientists calculate a calorie.

How many calories a food has is a measurement of how much energy it takes to burn that food into ash.

Yes, you read that right: take an apple and burn it to ash and measure the energy it took.

That is a calorie.

A calorie is supposed to represent how much energy a food has.

I’m sure you will agree with me: Calories are Silly.

Calories are silly because they assume all types of calories are the same, but they don’t act the same in our bodies.

Don’t believe me? Try eating only sugar, or only fat, or only protein…. And you will see (even if you kept the calories the same) your body would react differently to each of those foods.

Your body is not a machine that burns food into ash.

The real key to weight loss is not counting calories, but focusing on your metabolism.

Remember when you were young and you could eat anything?

That was because your metabolism was in high gear.

You can recover your lost metabolism with a few easy steps:

Dr. Scott’ “Find Your Lost Metabolism” Program:

  • Exercise and Protein: Your metabolism is very closely related to how much muscle mass you have. Find an exercise you love and do it as often as you can. Make sure you are eating or supplementing with a good quality protein to help build those muscles.
  • Take Metabolism Boosters:
    • Chromium: this mineral helps to balance blood sugar and boost metabolism.
    • Berberine: is well known to super-charge metabolism.
    • Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG): is an extract found in green tea that has been shown to help support good metabolism.

I look forward to the day when I don’t have to hear the “Eat Less, Exercise More” baloney – but I’m not holding my breath.

Mainstream nutrition was swayed by this bad science years ago and has yet to recover.

Health and Happiness,

Scott Olson
