“Eat-less, move-more.” This advice is the well-worn path to boomerang regain. The classic calorie-deficit approach has been shown to fail over and over again throughout scientific and clinical history … Yet it still forms the foundation of lifestyle advice delivered in conventional medical settings across the world.
Scratch the surface, and you’ll find the same old ‘sloth-and-gluttony’ mythology. That’s powerful stuff if deep down even you believe it is true. It’s the stuff that makes you wrongly blame your own character – your “lack of willpower” – when bad advice fails you again and again.
Ask yourself why you are being given lifestyle advice that doesn’t work. There is a way, you just aren’t being shown it. What does the path you are being shown lead to?
