Posted by Jason Ferruggia

Have you tried losing weight in the past but just couldn’t make progress no matter how little you ate or how much you exercised?

Even worse, have you managed to lose weight in the past only to gain it all back, and then some?

The problem most likely is NOT a lack of discipline and consistency, or any character flaw.

The problem is your current “Setpoint,” and learning what it is and how to change it will help you finally get the results you want.

Jonathan Bailor is the founder of His SANE program is rooted in the modern science that weight gain and diabetes are not character flaws, but instead are symptoms of an elevated Setpoint Weight caused by “insane” foods and yo-yo dieting.

He is also the NY Times and USA Today bestselling author of the book, “The Calorie Myth.”

His newest book is, “The Setpoint Diet: The 21-Day Program to Permanently Change What Your Body ‘Wants’ to Weigh.” The Setpoint Diet provides a breakthrough eating plan proven to help anyone who wants to improve their metabolic health, blood sugar and weight naturally and permanently by lowering their “setpoint.”

The very definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result. If you want to learn about the SANE approach to losing weight and keeping it off, this episode is for you!
