There is a lot of sense in this article. That a lot of people really don’t want to hear.
I’ve posted the link to his mathematical simulator before, and I still think it’s WAY OFF on the numbers. For me it comes up with a ridiculously high result – if I followed his recommendations on how many calories I should eat to lose 20 pounds, I would instead gain about 30. It recommends that I should eat 2347 calories a day to lose 20 pounds. Right now I eat approximately 1800 calories a day just to stay stable at 200.
BUT – the other stuff the mathematician says in the interview is pretty dead on, despite his model being skewed way high. Check it out.
