Ok ... about calories in vs calories out.
You should all be afraid ... very very afraid ... because I've been thinking about this ....
There are a couple of reasons why this may not appear to be true.
Weight lose is not logically linear. We as women should know that, especially. Hormones (for one thing) interfere.
Remember that a liter of water weighs 2.2 lbs. A healthy fluid shift can do that for ya.
If you are eating healthier, purer foods, all elimination systems will be working more efficiently ... um ... fluid ... etc. This will help with that healthy fluid shift too.
According to Venuto and a few others, eating actually boosts your metabolism. Each time you put food into your stomach, your body needs calories to process it. That is from where the theory of small frequent meals comes.
Maybe if you're feeling good, enthusiastic about your new plan, anticipating the happy results ... there's a spring in your step and you're using more calories than you think.
There ... a bit of logic, a bit of science and a bit of fun.
Maybe someone else has a good answer
