Eating less tells your body it's experiencing a famine, so it will store more fat for backup fuel. Eating the wrong types of food also promotes fat storage. So focus on frequently eating foods that are optimal for your health to get the most bang for your metabolic buck!
Nutrients are responsible for our health--not calories, and certainly not the latest dietary trend. It's not about calories, grams, total fat, or daily percentages; and it's not about alkaline, paleo, vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free--you name it.
When eating right, you can put the amount out of focus. It's difficult to overeat when consuming nutrient-dense foods because your body is able to reach its nutrient quota that it requires to survive and function. No one is going to have to pull you away from eating an entire bag of carrots.
So, go for it. Eat as many nutrient-dense foods as you want. Just eat anything REAL. That's what it's all about.
Health tip: "Low calorie" diets never work if your goal is to lose fat. When restricting food intake, the body fears a famine & will begin to hold onto fat instead of burn it. So eating more nutrient-dense foods, frequently & consistently, will teach your body to burn fat constantly, instead of store it!
Some people may think, "How'd I get fat? How'd I get so many wrinkles? How'd I get cancer?"
When your body cannot recognize a foreign agent entering the body, it taxes the immune system and causes stress, aging, breakdown, and fat storage: all of which lead to dysfunction and disease.
Health is not about "calories in, calories out". Always check the INGREDIENTS label. If you cannot understand what it is that you're eating, chances are good that your body does not either, and your health will pay the consequences.
How did human history survive before the genesis of 100 calorie packs, margarine, vegetable oil, weight watchers frozen dinners, 24-hour gyms, body wraps, kale chips, protein shakes, and pills? Humans survived off of the very things we are told to cut out: fat, sugar, salt, and carbs.
The key to health is not found in the industry.
The key to creating health is found within your daily routine.
YOU are your own healer.
If the key to health was in these profitable products out there, then why are we the sickest and most confused we've ever been?
You don't have to spend hours in a gym exhausting yourself. You don't have to cut out fruit because it's "high in sugar". You don't have to count calories. You don't have to eat salad. You don't have to eat broccoli. You don't have to skip meals and starve or deprive yourself. You don't have to run a marathon. You don't have to run, period.
There are very SIMPLE nutrition and lifestyle changes that create the health that you want AND without having to exhaust yourself.

Pay attention to the quality of your food, rather than the number of calories it provides you.
If the body does not recognize an ingredient, it could lead to a decrease in energy production, an inefficient metabolism, and more stress on the body.
The continued consumption of fake ingredients can lead to the following:
- Anxiety and panic attacks
- Muscle and joint pain
- Slow reflexes and speech
- Hair loss
- Lower immune system
- Impaired hearing
- Muscle weakness,
- Cold hands and feet
- Psychological depression
- Cognitive difficulties
- Dry skin
- Menstrual problems
- Hormonal fluctuations
- and so on.
If you are suffering with any "ailment", it could be your body telling you something. Maybe all you need is a change in diet. Organic, real ingredients are what your body is trying to beg you for, not deprivation through less caloric intake.
Listen to your body, and feed it the nutrients it craves through real food.
