Want to Lose Fat? Count Your Hormones, Not Your Calories

by drsjbecker on January 22, 2013

In part one and part two of this blog series, I explained that the calorie model of weight loss has failed miserably as a strategy for long-term body change. I have argued that it does not work, not because it is wrong, but rather because it is incomplete. Calories matter, but hormones matter more.

Calories don’t control metabolism — hormones do. Calories don’t determine what type of weight you will lose and where you may lose it from — hormones do. Calories have little influence over hunger, cravings, energy and mood — but hormones do.
