Everyone deserves to be their ideal weight and live the good life

Calculating your daily caloric intake really misses the point, because it’s more about types of macronutrients and eating quality food

If you hit a weight loss plateau, it’s important to be keenly aware of what you’re eating; drink lots of water and get proper nutrients and vitamins and minerals

The Atkins’ induction phase (consuming less than 20 grams of carbs/day) can move you off a frustrating fat-retaining plateau

Just because you may have a slower metabolism, doesn’t mean that fat loss is out of your control!

Again, you don’t need to count calories; just be aware of what you’re eating

Fats are the best source of energy, and they are satiating

Lots of high carb foods generally should be avoided, as they will just lead to fat accumulation

Paleolithic humans had a dramatically different food situation, weren’t aware of “calories,” and yet were fit and healthy

Self-acceptance is key, as is awareness of and resolving your inner conflicts
