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.
In The Calorie Myth, Bailor offers clear, comprehensive guidance on what to eat and why, providing an eating plan, recipes, and a simple yet effective exercise regimen based on the principles of high intensity interval training. Losing weight doesn't have to mean going hungry or spending hours at the gym. The Calorie Myth offers a radical new model for weight loss and long-term health.

Annoying announcements all the time of 'new section' and frequent references to the website to plug products. The fake annoying voices when quoting others is a poor choice. The constant references to SANE and insane foods gets old really quick. Get Abel James' wild diet instead.
If you are struggling with your weight, diet or health and energy make sure you check out this book. It will save your life, a lot of time and effort!!!
"the sanest solution to getting fit and healthy!"
I loved it. listened twice. employing principals learned.
continuing to learn from the website regularly.
"Great info, even better at 1.5x speed"
This book really lays out a simple way to change your health to change your body approach to long term weight loss.
"I loved it "
This is the only source that changed my lifestyle. I enjoyed listening to it, and it feels like training with proper engagement. It is heavily based on evidence with facts and figures from Harvard Medical school etc. I recommend this to all my friends and family in Saudi Arabia or elsewhere.
"Love the message, but the solution is half-baked."
With all the cutting-edge nutrition research supporting a low carb high fat moderate protein diet, I'm not sure why he chose to make up an "overdose yourself with protein" diet. Disappointing read.
This book is an outside the box approach to eating and exercise. As a therapist and strength coach, I know the best kept secret is eccentric exercise. I look forward to applying Jonathan's SANE eating in my diet and others. Thank you!
