The typical claim that simply eating more calories than one burns always leads to obesity is not the full picture. The exact number of calories burned and the exact number of calories in food can rarely be measured accurately. And weight is not necessarily the best measure to determine fitness – if one loses 10 pounds of fat but gains 10 pounds of muscle, they are fitter! Overall, carbs are significantly worse for you than fat or protein when it comes to weight loss, and certain types of exercise are better than others. This book contains both scientific studies as well as practical advice for losing weight the smart way.

“A calorie is not a calorie because energy balance doesn't matter. You can get fatter without eating more; you can even get fatter by eating less.”
