It's true. We've been duped.
We have been led to believe that to lose weight and get healthy we have to cut calories, cut carbs, and basically cut out eating anything enjoyable.
It's just plain wrong.
The thing is, since when is operating at a deficit a good thing? It isn't. It feels awful to deprive ourselves, to be hungry, to track our food.
It's also why we keep gaining weight.
Dieting may work at first but it will ALWAYS slow down our metabolism and cause us to gain back what we lost, and more.
Cue the feelings of defeat, confusion, and frustration.
