Did you know there are people who are starving themselves to compensate for eating a dessert? This is just one of many examples of people who are trying to create a calorie deficit through the use of dietary restrictions and prolonged exercise. In other words, they are trying to make sure they use up more calories than what they put in, thinking that this will result in weight loss.
Where does it come from? It originates in the commonly available knowledge that mainstream channels spread in the world, which correctly states that one pound (half a kilogram) equals 3600 calories. People who thought they found a clever way to cheat the system, or people who did not know what to do with this knowledge took this fact and turned it into the “calorie counting system”. This system is theoretically genius, but as with many theories, it’s very much up in the air. When we theorise we don’t always take everything into account, which is most certainly the case in this matter of creating a way to go around biologic functions and lose weight. You can say this was meant to be a short cut for weight loss. Shortcut that is falling short on many fronts, from results to actual health risks.
In reality, the “calorie counting” system doesn’t take much at all into consideration.
You shouldn’t think about the numbers but rather about content. It is the quality of food you put in that should make sense to you. If you only eat sugar and fat, even if you coordinate it so that it’s not much, you will end up damaging yourself.
Also, it is very much about timing and how you time your meals throughout the day.
This is because counting calories won’t make your extra weight fall off, but creating the right metabolic environment in your body will! This is one of the big secrets of weight loss.
The right metabolic conditions will determine whether your hormones and hormonal reaction will go with you or against you. This is simple biology. This is also the way to avoid “water-weight” and stay lean. Once you know what to do, it is so easy you will be shocked! Luckily for you, we have written a book to explain everything in a simple, step by step manner. Under 15 pages of concise and easy read that clarifies what you need to do in order to lose weight fast.

However, it won’t really get you results in terms of weight loss. If you want results, work smarter not harder. How do you get smarter? Read a book! Check out neatbodies.com and get on the action.
