How do you lose weight scientifically?

Well, that's a different question. It's pretty easy now that we're using a nutritional framework, and we know what's good for you. And if you're going to make progress, you want to move in that direction.

How do you keep weight off?

Here's a good question. You have to think long and hard. But people tend to believe you keep weight off when people have had a few hundred calories in their diet.

The truth is you're just eating at a calorie level where you're getting the calories from high quality sources like vegetables, whole grains, fruits, legumes, and seeds. So, you're not really losing weight, because you're getting the healthy nutrition, the antioxidants, the fibre and the antioxidants, from your carbs. But you're just not getting those nutrients that really make a big impact, which is vitamins, fats, proteins, amino acids, magnesium, iron…

Can you think of other ways of eating that are helping you lose weight?

What's the bottom line on the body building world and what's best for you?

It's not really a matter anymore about calories or calories, or protein intake, or protein maintenance. It's not really, unless you're doing extreme programs, because if you lose all the fat and you're not getting muscle mass, then it's really kind of counterproductive to go to extreme amounts. It's actually pretty difficult to do extreme amounts without the risk of burnout, since these programs can take you to unhealthy levels in time.

If you're trying to lose weight you may not achieve your goals, but you're going to do just fine. You can still maintain a nice body composition even on a very high calorie diet… You're going to have to do a lot of cardio, but I find that working on a body composition program that's a lot more manageable than trying to get ripped and having a million calories in your diet…

Why are body builders fat?
