In this month's podcast, Tara and I are talking calories. Your body needs energy to recover, and that energy doesn't come from yoga or rest or a great massage. It comes from food. From calories. Unfortunately, we live in a culture where dieting is so pervasive, we don't even know we're dieting. I had a client tell me yesterday, "I don't diet. I eat 1100 calories a day." You guys. Anything below your body's recovery/ongoing requirements (generally speaking, 2500/day for an adult 5' and taller) IS dieting and will only suppress your metabolism. Our bodies are far more complex than a simple equation of calories in vs. calories out. In this episode of EDulting, we attempt to explain this complexity, as well as the struggle to accept it in recovery.
