The Best Diet For Weight Loss

The Best Diet For Weight Loss

Everyone who wants to lose weight asks what to avoid eating and what is the best diet to follow. New research on metabolism is emphasizing how we eat and expend the calories, rather than what we eat.

Our body’s caloric expenditure has been compared to an engine or a machine for ages, but newer studies compare it to a business, where the main aim is to survive and procreate.

Exercise Isn’t To Burn Calories

Being physically active has an indirect advantage that goes beyond burning calories: spending less energy on other aspects of our body like inflammation levels, reactivity to stress and other unwanted areas.

Exercise then becomes a way to redirect and refocus energy expenditure and an auto-adjustment of metabolism.

The Way Of The Hunter-Gatherers

The body becomes good at prioritizing the calorie expenditure, if there is plenty of physical activity.

Just like more output in a factory results in more goods produced that can be profitable for the business, being physically active and burning thousands of calories every day leads to an auto-adjustment in the body, which is surprisingly flexible and agile.

The Biggest Loser

New insights on how the body adjusts the calorie expenditure and metabolism makes one understand how foolish it is to starve oneself and exercise hard to lose weight.

Your body may show some initial results due to your starving yourself, but that will be pushed back as the metabolic rate will start to auto-adjust to the new reality, ensuring that the lost weight is back in weeks.

Rethinking What Exercise And Diet Is

Exercise helps one regulate their body, keeps it in shape and is essential for us no matter how much we eat. 

If we live with the hunter-gatherer societies and see how they live, work and eat, the diet fads like vegan, paleo etc. will seem ridiculous and even dangerous.

One has to eat plenty of plants, roots, pulses, honey and burn it by having an active lifestyle 24 hours a day, not just an hour at the gym.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
