The Keto Answers Podcast 045: Why Calorie Counting is Bogus & What to Do Instead – Jonathan Bailor

Ditch the keto confusion and get simple, reliable answers in my NEW book, Keto Answers.

Have you ever felt like no matter what you did, including dieting and exercising, your weight still seems to stay the same?

Is it possible that your body is locked into a set point that’s no longer reversible, due to age, lifestyle, hormones, or some other factor?

And is it true that you can lower your set point by exercising more and eating less and following a calories in vs calories out mentality?

In this podcast episode with guest Jonathan Bailor, a New York Times Bestselling Author of The Calorie Myth and other notable books such as The Smarter Science of Slim and The Set Point Diet, you’ll learn why calorie counting should not be your focus if improving your health and losing weight are your goals.

We’ll explore why that is and what you should put your attention on instead.

Jonathan — who also happens to have over 50k followers on his Twitter, Facebook and YouTube channel combined — also shares his exact formula for eating healthy without counting calories and how to find the serving size that’s right for your body.

You’ll also learn what his top choices are in each category of food.
