Cutting Calories for Weight Loss - A Scientific Appraisal

By Jason Fung, MD

Cutting calories is the standard advice for weight loss, but every scientific study shows that this strategy does not work. Dr. Fung reviews the scientific evidence and explains that calorie strategies employ shallow first order logic, akin to saying to an alcoholic, just drink less alcohol. Successful weight loss depends on understanding WHY people are eating more calories.
