Description

Sample Book Insights:
#1 The human body is a complex mathematical equation that is not reducible to a simple equation. It is not the lack of counting calories, pill popping, or insulin injections that is the problem. The problem is something breaking our biology, and we’re trying to starve, stress, and medicate to address its consequences instead of fixing the breakdown itself.
#2 There are three possible explanations for why we haven’t gained 476 pounds since 2006: we’re eating less, we’re exercising more, or the Calorie Math doesn’t add up.
#3 The math myth doesn’t work because it assumes our body doesn’t do anything to counterbalance our efforts to count calories. In reality, our genes, brain, and hormones work together to maintain balance, or homeostasis.
#4 The math myth is that we can lose weight by counting calories. However, this is completely false. We have automatically avoided 98 percent of the weight we should have gained according to calorie counting because our body is designed to balance us out automatically.

#1

The human body is a complex mathematical equation that is not reducible to a simple equation. It is not the lack of counting calories, pill popping, or insulin injections that is the problem. The problem is something breaking our biology, and we’re trying to starve, stress, and medicate to address its consequences instead of fixing the breakdown itself.

#2

There are three possible explanations for why we haven’t gained 476 pounds since 2006: we’re eating less, we’re exercising more, or the Calorie Math doesn’t add up.

#3

The math myth doesn’t work because it assumes our body doesn’t do anything to counterbalance our efforts to count calories. In reality, our genes, brain, and hormones work together to maintain balance, or homeostasis.

#4

The math myth is that we can lose weight by counting calories. However, this is completely false. We have automatically avoided 98 percent of the weight we should have gained according to calorie counting because our body is designed to balance us out automatically.

#5

We don’t have to decide to eat less and exercise more; instead, we need to find out what causes the set-point to rise and how to lower it.

#6

We all have a set-point, and that is what determines how slim or stocky we are long term. It is determined by a series of hormonal signals released from our gut, pancreas, and fat cells, which travel to the hypothalamus in the brain.

#7

The days of the set-point theory are over. We can now overcome obesity by healing—rather than fighting against—the proven biological system that balances our weight.

#8

Calories do matter, but you can’t forget that they are just a number unless you are trying to lose weight. If you eat as much as you want of high-quality food, your body will naturally balance them for you.

#9

Our set-point is determined by our genetics, and it determines our long-term weight. If our weight is elevated, it’s because our set-point is elevated thanks to a hormonal clog.

#10

When our hormones change, our set-point changes. This is why we gain weight as we age. We aren’t becoming lazier and hungrier with each passing year, but our bodies are becoming hormonally clogged, which is why we can’t lose weight.

#11

The study showed that the participants’ appetite increased and their calorie burn decreased after they went through with the starvation diet. This proves that the body is trying to regain its set-point weight after weight loss, which can be avoided by healing your hormones and restoring your body’s ability to balance you out at a lower level of body fat.

#12

Robert was fed up with being overweight. He had been active and heavy his whole life, and was surrounded by thinner friends and coworkers who ate less than he did. After countless attempts to get by on 1,200 calories per day, Robert swore off starvation dieting.

#13

When we are unclogged, our weight stays within a set point. When we start eating poorly, our set-point rises as our body tries to maintain balance by keeping us at a normal level of body fat.

#14

The set-point theory states that our body weight is determined by our body’s reaction to the food we eat. If we eat higher-quality food, our set-point will lower, and we’ll maintain a normal weight. If we eat lower-quality food, our set-point will raise and we’ll gain weight.

#15

The study showed that a steady diet of low-quality food can cause our set-point to rise, which is unsettling news for anyone who’s been eating the standard American diet for any length of time. But studies show that the metabolic and hormonal consequences of eating a low-quality diet are reversible.

#16

The set-point is what determines weight, and it is unchangeable. Eating less does not cause long-term weight loss, and exercising does not cause long-term weight loss. The only factor that affects weight is the quality of your calories.

#17

The four problems with the traditional quantity-focused fat-loss approach are that eating less does not cause long-term fat loss, exercising more does not cause long-term fat loss, exercising less does not cause long- term fat gain, and eating more does not cause long-term fat gain.

#18

The math behind calorie counting and eating less of a Western diet to lose weight is completely wrong. It assumes that taking in fewer calories forces our body to burn fat, but that is false. Instead, it forces us to burn fewer calories.

#19

If we want to burn fat and boost our health for the next sixty years rather than the next sixty days, we must not starve ourselves. Our body goes into starvation mode when we do not provide it with enough essential nutrients.

#20

The four laws of thermodynamics state that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only changed forms. When people eat less, the body must do something. However, these laws do not prove that reducing the number of calories eaten will result in the body burning fat.

#21

The side effects of starvation dieting can be seen in a study at the University of Geneva, where three groups of rats were given food. The Normal Group was eating normally, the Eat Less Group was temporarily losing weight by eating less, and the Naturally Skinny Group was naturally skinny.

#22

The Eat Less Group, who ate less for ten days, weighed the most and had the highest body fat percentage at the end of the study.
