What if this is the myth that’s stopping you from losing fat for good?

Out of all the myths about dieting, there’s one that always catches my attention.

The reason is simple.

It’s based on wrong assumptions, inaccurate experience, or a lack of understanding of the science of fat loss.

What myth I’m talking about?

The fact that people who have tried cutting calories and didn’t lose weight say… “all calories are not equal.”

The thing is that they are right (and wrong) at the same time.

Let me explain.

Yes, the idea behind calories being all the same is somewhat good… 

but the way it’s said (and believed) isn’t the case.

When you think that eating 150kcal of popcorn vs 150kcal of rice will give you two different outcomes isn’t really how the body works.

A calorie is a calorie… just like a centimetre is a centimetre.

Both are a way of measuring the thing, not the thing itself.

So saying they are not the same is wrong.


What we can say and it’s true is that not all sources of calories are the same.

That’s something totally different.

If you were to eat 150kcal of popcorn instead of rice, you will be much fuller after the popcorn because the density of these two is different.

The point is…

You can change the way calories impact your satiety and fat loss rate by choosing food that makes you feel fuller, but not by avoiding certain food or thinking that one is better or worse than the other.

There isn’t such a thing as good/bad foods.

So if you’re planning to lose weight or you’re on a diet right now, keep this in mind.

It’s not uncommon to see many “experts” saying this myth as a truth and then telling you to focus on hormones, keto or “clean eating” (whatever that means).

Make sure you eat plenty of calories from food that has a good nutritional value,…

but no one says that 20% of your daily calories can come from ice cream, pizza… or the food you love.

There’s no need to trust myths that the only thing they are doing is make you wonder what’s true and what’s pseudoscience, which one stops you from losing fat and keeping it off.

Many people go out there saying they are on a diet without paying attention to the real definition. To begin with, let’s explore the roots of the word diet. It comes from the greek diata, which means “a way of living” So this means that when you say “you’re on a diet”, in reality, you

Not all weight loss is created equal

Do you know why I’d rather lose 3-5 pounds of fat per month than 10+ of weight? Simply because it lets me know that the majority of the weight I lose will come from fat and not other tissues like muscle. There’s this idea that all weight loss is created equal. And they simply don’t
