Editorial Reviews

Review

“Jonathan Bailor has written a smart, useful guide that is easy to follow and a pleasure to read. The Calorie Myth shows you how to eliminate toxic foods that zap your energy and add inches to your waistline. It will change the way you look at dieting!” (JJ Virgin, CNS, CHFS, bestselling author of The Virgin Diet)

“The Calorie Myth does an excellent job of exposing the fundamental myths about obesity and weight loss that are keeping Americans sick. By explaining the link between our hormones and our metabolism, Jonathan Bailor offers readers a powerful set of tools for creating lifelong health.” (Mark Hyman, MD, bestselling author of The Blood Sugar Solution)

“Jonathan Bailor cuts through the noise and tells it to us straight: the food we eat impacts our biology in the most fundamental yet fixable ways. Our hormones regulate weight loss, and what we eat impacts how they function. Calories? Not the issue.” (Sara Gottfried, MD, bestselling author of The Hormone Cure)

“The Calorie Myth will do more to assist people with their health than all the popular diet books currently out there put together. I want to shout, ‘Bravo! Finally someone gets it!’” (Christiane Northrup, MD, OB/GYN, physician and author of the bestsellers Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause)

“The Calorie Myth provides a clear plan for readers to reset their metabolism and shed excess weight-not through excessive exercise and restrictive calorie counts, but with delicious and nourishing foods and moderate exercise. A valuable and transformative book.” (Mike Moreno, MD, bestselling author of The 17 Day Diet)

From the Back Cover

What if everything you thought you knew about weight loss was wrong?

When it comes to most things in life, we welcome research and progress. From the convenience of our smartphones to the technology in our hospitals, scientific advancement allows us to live better.

So why are we still following weight-loss advice from the 1950s? Why haven't we ever questioned the "calories in/calories out" model at the foundation of every diet and fitness plan—a formula that, not coincidentally, has accompanied record-breaking levels of obesity?

In The Calorie Myth, Jonathan Bailor exposes the fundamental flaw upon which the diet industry is built and offers a new equation:

eat More + exercise Less = weight loss

If calorie math added up, 100 calories of vegetables = 100 calories of candy. That doesn't seem right—because it's not. While some calories fuel weight loss, others work against us. In The Calorie Myth, Bailor shows us how eating more of the right kinds of foods and exercising less, but at a higher intensity, is the true formula for burning fat and boosting metabolism.

Why? Because eating high-quality foods, like whole-food plants, proteins, and fats, balances the hormones that regulate your metabolism. Eating poor-quality foods, like refined starches, sweets, and processed foods, causes a hormonal imbalance, throwing your metabolism off kilter and causing you to store food as fat—regardless of how many calories you consume.

In this revolutionary weight-loss program informed by more than 1,200 scientific studies, Bailor offers clear, comprehensive guidance on what to eat and why, providing an eating plan, recipes, and a simple yet effective exercise regimen.

Losing weight doesn't have to mean going hungry or spending hours at the gym. Don't let outdated calorie math stand between you and the life you want: discover the new science of weight loss with The Calorie Myth.
