Eat Less + Exercise More = Weight Loss?

If giraffes ate the food we eat, would they look like this?

What We're Taught:

Eat Less + Exercise More = Weight Loss

In theory, there is nothing wrong with trying to lose weight this way. However, most people find it difficult to achieve long-term.

The main reason? Your body’s deep-seated desire for self-preservation and survival. In other words, you get hungry.

See, cutting calories sends the wrong signal to your brain. It throws the fat-storage switch to the "on" position. (The key is the type of calories you consume, not the number.) The same is true of low-fat, high-carb diets.

And exercise makes the problem worse, because it stimulates appetite. (Ever heard the term "working up an appetite"?)

Your body compensates for increased exercise with increased food intake – and it takes very little food to replace whatever calories were burned from exercising. (You need to climb twenty-five flights of stairs to burn off an Oreo cookie.)

To lose weight, a few folks manage to overcome their hunger and exercise more. But not many. And not for long.

So what are you supposed to do instead?
