MYTH: Calories cause weight gain, and fewer calories are the path to weight loss.
Calories are important for weight loss. If you eat and absorb a ton more than you use, then your body’s wisdom will store some for later. Calories matter.
But, they are not the “be-all and end-all" for weight loss; they're important, but they're the symptom, not the cause.
Let's think about the reasons people eat more calories. Let's focus on the causes.
People eat too many calories, not because they're hungry, but because they feel sad, lonely, or bored. Or maybe because they're tired or stressed. Or maybe even because they're happy and celebrating. And all these feelings interact with our gastrointestinal, nervous and hormonal systems; all of which influence our calorie intake.
Weight loss is hard! There are too many people out there trying to make it sound like they have the simple solution (or the latest and greatest!). Don’t fall for the myth that says:
Calories cause weight gain, and fewer calories are the path to weight loss. Buy this supplement/tea/food/magic potion to lose weight.
