Brownie calorie vs a Kale calorie – does it matter?

/blogs/news/brownie-calorie-vs-a-kale-calorie-does-it-matter

  Last week we talked about why counting calories isn’t working. We have been taught that our food has a calorie number associated to it (a calorie is a unit of energy from food), and that is all there is to it, calories in and calories out. This is an antiquated and outdated method for long-term and lasting weight loss as it does not speak to the quality of foods and the hormonal effects food has our bodies. “A calorie of brownie is not the same as a calorie of kale. They just aren’t, that is common sense. But yet...

So what’s wrong with the calories in/calories out method? Well, when it comes to fat… guess what?! Your fat is an organ! It is a hormone sensitive organ that responds to different factors.

Now let’s address ways to heal the microbiome. One simple way would...

If you saw our post last week, or maybe you didn’t, we are diving into the microbiome and why it is so important. Both to weight maintenance but more importantly to your overall well being. Last week we gently planted the seed of what the microbiome is. So to touch back on that and to share a little more. The microbiome is the community of organisms both on us and in us. Taking a further look, there are actually more of the microbiome then there are of us. It’s about a 80/20 ratio, about 80% being this microbiome community, and...

What is ketosis anyway?   Ketosis is when your body has switched from using glycogen (sugar and carbs) as it’s main energy source to using ketones or fat stores for energy. How can I get into ketosis? Well, there are a couple ways, starving yourself which is NO fun and while doing so you will breakdown your muscle. Muscle is extremely important for your basal metabolic rate (the rate at which you burn calories in a rested state) so we want to avoid that option. Another option is to nutritionally eat your way into ketosis, this will require a diet...
