The Smarter Science of Slim-Scientific Proof. Fat Loss Facts debunks the classic assumptions about weight loss; such as, eating less and exercising more. Jonathan Bailor explains how certain foods cripple our ability to burn fat. Researchers disclose how to get the benefits of traditional exercise in a fraction of the time. Most of all, eating less sets us up for gaining more weight after dieting. As Bailor explains:

“The primary finding of the current study is that a lifestyle modification program consisting of high-intensity cardiovascular and resistance training combined with a carbohydrate and protein diet results in greater improvement in body composition, cardiovascular risk factors, and muscular strength than a program comprised of a traditional diet and moderate-intensity exercise regimen commonly recommended for weight loss.”

The gist of eating more means that we consume non-starchy vegetables and protein until fullness sets in. This step will make the body too full to consume starches and sweets. Jonathan Bailor refers to a clog which is the inability of our fat metabolism system to respond to signals from our hormones and our brain which otherwise enable us to burn body fat. The Laws of Thermodynamics prove nothing about what the fat metabolism system must do.

The solution is to eat more high quality food which provides more nutrition while preventing overeating. This act alone helps to clean out the hormonal clog while creating the need and the ability to burn fat. The set-point weight is the weight that our fat metabolism system maintains automatically regardless of the quantity of calories we consume or the exercise engaged in. The set-point takes whatever calories we eat plus the calories we burn and balances us out automatically.

Generally, the set-point won’t normalize until we normalize hormone levels by unclogging ourselves. This translates into eating better food and exercising less but smarter. For instance, spinach has twenty times the amount of Vitamin A and five times the Vitamin C than enriched wheat flour. The highest sources of protein are in tuna, egg white, whey protein powder, top sirloin and spinach. Eating protein means that fewer calories will be converted to glucose or body fat than calories from starch.

The food scientific pyramid has flax seeds and nuts at the top. Lean meat, select dairy, fruit and egg whites are in the middle of the pyramid. Non-starchy vegetables and seafood are at the bottom of the pyramid. Another important component of the food pyramid is to drink plenty of water and green tea. Exercise should be brief, more rigorous and combined with resistance training to be effective optimally.

The Smarter Science of Slim-Scientific Proof. Fat Loss Facts  is a considerable work on nutrition, fat metabolism and optimal exercise sequences to keep fat off permanently. There is a 77 page bibliography with extensive references from authoritative sources and prestigious universities. Jonathan Bailor spent the past decade working with top doctors and researchers to analyze over 10,000 pages of medical and biological research on diet, exercise and weight loss.

The work contains a plethora of theories on weight loss backed up by popular science. There is not much discussion on the role of inflammation in retarding the digestive and metabolic processes. Similarly, allergies and allergens clearly apply when food allergies are present. Otherwise, the presentation is a fairly complete rendition on fat loss and maintenance of the program over the long term time horizon.

About Dr Joseph S Maresca

I've taught approx. 34 sections of collegiate courses including computer applications, college algebra, collegiate statistics, law, accounting, finance and economics. The experience includes service as a Board Director on the CPA Journal and Editor of the CPA Candidates Inc. Newsletter. In college, I worked as a statistics lab assistant. Manhattan College awarded a BS in an allied area of operations research. The program included courses in calculus, ordinary differential equations, probability, statistical inference, linear algebra , the more advanced operations research, price analysis and econometrics. Membership in the Delta Mu Delta National Honor Society was granted together with the degree. My experience includes both private account and industry. In addition, I've worked extensively in the Examinations Division of the AICPA from time to time. Recently, I passed the Engineering in Training Exam which consisted of 9 hours of examination in chemistry, physics, calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, probability/ statistics, fluids, electronics, materials science/structure of matter, mechanics, statics, thermodynamics, computer science, dynamics and a host of minor subject areas like engineering economics. A very small percentage of engineers actually take and pass the EIT exam. The number has hovered at circa 5%. Several decades ago, I passed the CPA examination and obtained another license in Computer Information Systems Auditing. A CISA must have knowledge in the areas of data center review, systems applications, the operating system of the computer, disaster recovery, contingency planning, developmental systems, the standards which govern facility reviews and a host of other areas. An MBA in Accounting with an Advanced Professional Certificate in Computer Applications/ Information Systems , an Advanced Professional Certificate in Finance and an Advanced Professional Certificate in Organizational Design were earned at New York University-Graduate School of Business (Stern ). In December of 2005, an earned PhD in Accounting was granted by the Ross College. The program entrance requires a previous Masters Degree for admittance together with a host of other criteria.
