Description

Contrary to what most diets would have you believe, the human body does not recognize all calories as equal. Some foods are used to boost brain power, fuel metabolism, and heal the body—while others are simply stored as fat. In The Calorie Myth, Bailor shows us how eating more of the right kinds of foods and exercising less, but at a higher intensity, is the true formula for burning fat.

Why? Because eating high-quality foods balances the hormones that regulate our metabolism. When we eat these foods, our bodies naturally maintain a healthy weight. But when we eat sugar, starches, processed fats, and other poor-quality foods, the body's regulatory system becomes "clogged" and prevents us from burning extra calories. Translation: Those extra 10 pounds aren't the result of eating too much . . . they're the result of eating the wrong foods!

Bailor offers clear, comprehensive guidance on what to eat and why, providing an eating plan, recipes, and a simple yet effective exercise regimen. Losing weight doesn't have to mean going hungry or spending hours at the gym. The Calorie Myth offers a radical and effective new model for weight loss and long-term health.

        As a personal trainer, Jonathan Bailor worked with clients who would achieve the results they wanted as long as they spent countless hours exercising and following restrictive diets. Frustrated by recommending a lifestyle that was not sustainable, he began the ten-year research odyssey that became The Calorie Myth.

        Bailor has registered more than twenty-five patents, serves as a senior program manager for Microsoft, and runs a wellness consulting business. He lives in Seattle, Washington with his wife.

        November 4, 2013
        Microsoft executive by day and fitness devotee by night, Bailor, in his first book, ostensibly offers readers the best of all worlds: the freedom to eat more food without worrying about gaining weight. Drawing on 1,200 research studies, Bailor’s reach exceeds his grasp as he alternates between over-explanation and obfuscation in an attempt to get his points across. Based on his SANE concept of calorie qualities—Satiety, Aggression (whether calories will be stored as body fat), Nutrition, and Efficiency (how those calories are stored)—which must be in balance in order to achieve optimum results, Bailor addresses commonly held beliefs about weight management and exercise in a meandering argument for his theory that eating fewer processed foods and cutting back on carbs will lead to weight loss and greater health. Whether or not his recommendations are valid—his exercise regimen, for example, calls for only 20 minutes of exercise per week and his diet plan, including recipes, offers no nutritional information or endorsement from a licensed dietician—or simply too good to be true remains to be seen, though the author is happy to cite third-party studies. Readers certainly won’t hurt themselves by following his convoluted program, but they might do better elsewhere. 60 illus. Agent: Linda Konner, Linda Konner Literary Agency.

        All calories are not equal, says personal trainer Bailor, and the key to weight loss is eating more of the right kinds of foods and exercising at a higher intensity for shorter lengths of time.
