    There are a lot of factors that you must consider when fat loss is one of the two primary goals of your workout program (building muscle is the other). In either case, the belief that all calories are created equal is the worst diet mistake you can make, as I'll show you in this video.

    The rate and degree of fat loss that you can achieve is really determined by a lot of factors including how much body fat you have to lose, the amount of muscle you have, the speed of your metabolism, etc. One of the ones that is impacted every day however is the way you approach your meal plans and calories.

    Because of the concept of "nutragenomics", all calories are certainly not created equal or treated by your muscles as equal. In order to maximize muscle growth, you need to really review the type of fat loss efforts you're making. How clean is your diet really? Should you even be counting calories?

    You'll see in this fat loss factor reviewing your diet and maintaining a high quality of nutrients is much more important than the amount of calories you consume!

    For more information on the type of meal plans that produce the fastest simultaneous fat loss and muscle growth, be sure to head over to http://athleanx.com and read about the x factor meal plans. It's all part of the number one rated workout and nutrition program called ATHLEAN-X.

          Great point yeah the number of calories might be equal but it's the vitamins and minerals that make all the difference to your health and physique

                  I took a bath in a tub full of melted snickers bars. It was not only tasty, it was fun, and I think I added 4 lbs of lean muscle after licking the tub. Thanks for the idea,Jeff!!! You have too much muscle in the arms, looks unproportional but better than fat like Dom Delouiose might have.

                    How much should a seditary adult be eating. NHS says around 2000 so why did Jeff use 1500 as an example?

                      I don't mean to sound sarcastic or anything but it all depends. The stuff that organizations recommend is just a guideline. I know people that likely would become fat if they ate 2000 calories a day, I also know people who would look like skeletons if they ate 2000 calories a day and didn't lie about how much they ate/drank. It really depends on the individual. To get a rough estimate based on your own stats, find an online calculator, some can be pretty accurate. Caloric maintenance is dependant upon your body composition, height, and weight and a few other factors.

                              You should do a video about Fruits. Sugar in Fruits vs processed sugars (high fructose corn syrup) in Candy bars, juices, snacks etc. Some people say sugar is sugar.

                                    I used to eat vegetables often. That was before I was required to eat 8,000 chicken thighs per day to gain muscles....

                                      Exactly, also different calories are processed in different ways. *Insulin* effect etc and different effects on fat metabolism; and.. types of calories *burn* more calories than others just *to digest* . Would be good to see that conversation in a vid jeff.

                                        Well actually I don't have a problem with what I eat, but that I often overstep my calories for the day.

                                            The other thing that comes to mind is that eating the empty calorie candy would not make you full and screws you for the rest of the day. Over the weeks, months and years bad eating choices add up.

                                                    I believe the saying has merit in contexts when someone thinks he or she can eat an unlimited amount of nuts, dried fruits, avocado and those kind of things, thinking it's healthy.

                                                    The calories still counts

                                                      A calorie is a calorie is valid if you only care about weight loss and absolutely nothing else (i.e. I just want to lose certain pounds and I don't give a shit about muscle and health). If you eat at a caloric deficit, then yes, no matter what you're eating, let it be ice cream, chips, french fries, chocolate...etc, you'll lose weight.

                                                          I've never thought about nutrition before. I've been listening to the model health show on spotify and they teach nutrition for health rather than doctors and pills which should be a last resort. It's about being smarter and living a healthier lifestyle for our kids not just ourselves. Thanks Jeff for providing a wealth of amazing content

Snack food companies have been doing this for decades. The drop a little bit of size of their snacks figuring no one will notice and then I the keep the price the same or only slightly bring the price up. Either the way tons of profit. Sneaky bastards.

He eats steak, bacon, eggs and cheese ONLY. Nothing else. He says it’s the best he’s ever felt. He lifts and is losing weight.

                                                                              Do we really need to eat “healthy”? Why doesn’t he feel like crap and have health problems? Maybe it’s over a longer time that issues develop. Idk.

Stomach goes away and muscles pump up. I couldn’t rack my brain around why with technically more calories, yet much healthier options, I can eat more calories and get entirely different results

                                                                                    Now if we are talking about health, then you need food containing high amounts of micronutrients, which is completely a different discussion. These nutrients may *assist* with weight loss due to our bodies running more efficiently.

                                                                                    The take home message is, nobody is perfect, and should not be expected to eat 100% clean. Eat clean 80%-90% of the day while hitting your macro/micro needs and you will be well on your way.
