Jonathan Bailor: “The Calorie Myth” – #66

Millions of inquiring minds want to know: Calories, do they count or not? What if everything you were taught about eating, exercise, weight loss, and health could be proven wrong? On this episode you’ll hear Jonathan Bailor make a pretty sane argument for no more calorie counting and how doing so may actually be bad for your health! Learn how to eat more to weigh less, why you’ll want to ignore that number on the treadmill, and how not to be a slave to willpower. There’s a lot going on in this show!

Collaborating with top scientists for over 10 years, analyzing over 1,300 studies, and garnering endorsements by top doctors from Harvard Medical School, Johns Hopkins, Yale, and UCLA, Jonathan Bailor is a nutrition and exercise expert and  former personal trainer who specializes in using high-quality food and exercise to simplify wellness. He has registered over 25 patents and authored the revolutionary upcoming book “The Calorie Myth.”

Bailor serves as a Senior Program Manager at Microsoft, hosts a popular syndicated wellness radio show, blogs on The Huffington Post, and consults for organizations around the world.
