The calorie theory on obesity follows the energy balance equation of Calories In – Calories Out = Body Fat Gained or Lost
This equation is the gold standard when it comes to weight loss plans. Most diet plans on the market, whether you follow Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, SlimFast or another popular mainstream plan, depend on the theory if we cut calories very low, no matter what the macronutrient profile of the foods we eat, weight loss will be achieved.
And for most of these plans, this works!
But only for a short time. Most people who follow these mainstream plans begin with a gung ho attitude and see the scale fall for the first few weeks, or sometimes even months.
In this Part 1 of 2 episode we talk about:

- A lot of people still count calories while following keto. Is this a good idea?
- Some call counting macros just another way to count calories. Is macro counting just a new way to control calories? Or what’s the difference?
- Keep in mind – your macro range is just a range
- Why do so many keto experts still tell women to under-eat on keto?
