  • I have had people tell me CI/CO (calories in/calories out) does not work. They tried calorie restriction but weight loss stalled. I have a few questions for these people. * How were you tracking calories out? This is WAY more complex than tracking calories in. The body tries to balance output with input over time in a…

  • November 16 Exercise? Yes In budget? Likely Tracking? No Tracking while in hospital is hard, so that will just be a best effort.
