10 Take Home Lessons: Forget the Calories, Focus on the Quality of Your Diet

Here are the take home lessons from Dr. Ludwig’s paper:

  1. Overeating doesn’t make you fat. Your fat cells make you overeat.
     
  2. You make hungry fats cells by eating sugar and refined carbs.
     
  3. Restricting your calories will slow your metabolism, make you hungry and guarantee that your weight loss attempts will fail.
     
  4. Eating a higher fat, higher protein, lower sugar and refined carb diet will speed up your metabolism and cut your hunger.
     
  5. Controlling what you eat is much easier than controlling how much you eat.
     
  6. Forget calorie counting. It’s not about the calories but about diet quality and dietary composition. Just try eating 1,000 calories of broccoli.
     
  7. End our scientifically outdated position that all calories are equal and weight loss is simply a matter of eating fewer calories than you burn.
     
  8. Lower insulin by a sugar detox, and watch your body lose weight effortlessly without hunger or cravings.
     
  9. To learn more, watch the movie Fed Up or read The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet (a medically designed program to cut insulin and detox from sugar and refined carbs).
     
  10. Stop blaming yourself for lack of willpower, and start empowering yourself by eating real, whole, fresh food that’s low in sugar and starch.

  • Besides being a great role model, Iris is my weight loss coach and friend. My eating restrictions and exercise limitations are complicated because of illnesses I've had and the medications I'm on. For instance, I cant eat gluten, soy, corn and dairy. My exercise is restricted by peripheral neuropathy and Lymphedema. Iris helps me shop for food that I can eat and that I like and find activities that I can do, like water aerobics. Read More
