That is an excellent article that has certainly put some things into perspective for me. Particularly since I'm battling some physical limitations right now. Thank you for posting it.

Good article JossFit - thanks for sharing!

It's amazing how simple it really is. I have always loved the quote "It's simple, but not easy" when it comes to challenges, and I think this article really speaks to that.

Simply put, just create a calorie deficit. However, food can be so many things for stress eaters, and eating in excess can give you a greater comfort than sitting with the most skilled counselor. While it's simple, it's certainly not (always) easy.

I definitely needed to see this article. Way to bring it back to basics! Thanks again Joss!

Thanks for sharing that article. It's a nice and easy read for me, some articles that get linked are too complicated for me (lol).

The comments after the article and additional links were helpful too.

There is some gold in the comments. He should have put this into the primary article, near the top.

So many people, when you tell them fat loss is an equation of energy and energy is measured in calories will start to protest in a variety of ways about this, that and the other thing. While all those things matter for a number of reasons nothing will matter if you're not in an energy deficit. He says it well...

"I am in COMPLETE agreement with the fact that the source of your calories, the foods you eat, the quality of those foods, your full macronutrient breakdown, meal frequency, diet organization and so on are all definitely important factors of your diet in terms of adherence and sustainability (and obviously overall health, too).

They are the things that will allow you to consistently eat the amount of calories you need to eat to make your body do what you want it to do. No doubt about that at all.

The purpose of this post was to point out that despite the things being said/written/sold by some very stupid people on a fairly regular basis, it’s ALWAYS about calories first and foremost… not the other way around."

Awesome link!

Truth! I didn't learn any of this until I came to 3FC. I'm eternally grateful for this website and all the information the members provide.

Prior to coming here I was totally clueless.

I love it. I get so sick of the phrase "eating clean" being thrown around like it's a holy weight loss grail (especially around tumblr).

I don't buy it. There has GOT to be another way, an easier way. Like a pill, or cutting out one specific food, or hopping up and down on one foot 2 minutes a day!!!!!


Thanks for sharing!!! LOVED it!
