I am talking about general health Moose, but I'm also talking about weight loss.

If you focus only on calories you won't achieve the same weight loss results as you would if you focused on where those calories come from.

Sugar specifically for a couple reasons. First, intake of high carb/ high sugar foods causes your body to crave more of that. It's a hormonal response that was a biological adaptation for most of human existence when high sugar foods weren't in high supply and calories mattered so when you found some, you should eat as much as you could.

That's why it's super easy to crush a whole bag of Doritos even if you're not hungry.

If you read any of the literature on how effective people are at accurately counting the number of calories they intake, you'll get super skeptical hippo eyes about if those 2000 calories you think you took in was actually 2000 calories. We're pretty universally terrible at it.

The cool thing though, is if you're eating what you're supposed to instead of garbage, it's almost impossible to over eat. Conversely, if you're eating garbage, it's nearly impossible not to over eat. That's why I'm saying if you want to lose weight it's more important to focus on what you're eating instead of how much you're eating.

If you're eating the right things, how much of it you're eating kinda takes care of itself.

Again, try eating 3k calories with just eggs. Good luck with that. (FYI, that's about 42 eggs a day)
