Why we get fat – finally understanding the process

If you have ever heard someone saying fat loss or fat gain is 'simple thermodynamics - calories in, calories out', or if you have ever heard or read the only way to lose fat is to enter a diet that has a calorie deficit (less calories in than going 'out') then this is critical information you cannot afford to miss.

A great question on slow carb – diet or balanced eating plan?

I got a great question today, and having written the answer, with my brain still ticking, I thought ‘that deserves a post’. So here it is.

@Komosky - i see a lot of these deserts are ‘slow carb’ it’s not really a diet but a more balanced way of eating eh? almost every diet tries to eliminate carbs completely, whats ur thought?

My thoughts (edited since original reply):
