This video describes why calories gives you only a small slice of the picture for understanding weight loss. The body is constantly changing its operations to maintain homeostasis, and the food you take in has a drastic effect on these operations- the operation of hormones in particular.

I made another video on calories before that I feel fell short in a couple ways, so I thought it was important to give it another shot. It’s really hard to dig in and properly understand health if you are operating off the idea that calories are (most) significant for weight management.

[BLINKIST] Blinkist is an app I’ve been using lately to discover new books and review the ones I’ve already read. It gives you the key points in text or audio form from tons of different non-fiction books. Since I’m always going through so many books to get these done, it’s very useful to get me exposed to more concepts beforehand to know if it’s worth my time to buy and read through that particular book. Check it out through the link above.
