Yes, this is a picture of me from 2011 and I have no shame in it.


For me, it was a low point in my health, which would only continue to decline in the coming months at that point in my life.


The thing was though, I was working out, I was measuring my food, controlling calories, yet, I continued to gain fat.


I remember Devon saying early on in the marriage, โ€˜I donโ€™t understand, you are so disciplined with your workouts and what you eat and you would think that it would lead to you being a little leanerโ€™.


She was trying to be nice about it, the message was received loud and clear.


However, I was at a loss though. I was doing all the right things.


In the coming few summers, I would go for an all out push to get in shape for the summer, cutting my calories like I did when I was still competing in bodybuilding to 1600 calories or so per day, which was always a struggle.


Iโ€™d drop body fat, but Iโ€™d feel miserable and then there would always be the dreaded rebound. Each successive summer would get harder and harder to move the needle, just as I was noticing when I was bodybuilding as well.


It would have to be a little more extreme each time, but heck, I was a disciplined dude, I could do it.


All this to say, I learned for over a decade that the traditional model of cut calories, burn calories was a losing proposition.


Weight loss isnโ€™t about calories.


Weight loss is about hormones.


If you put 2000 calories into a relaxed body, once per day or if you put 2000 calories into a stressed body spread throughout the entire day, two very different things would happen, I assure you that.


Connect the dots my friend, connect the dots.
