Many Americans struggle with excess weight. However, simply restricting calories rarely leads to sustainable weight loss, because people end up feeling hungry and deprived, which causes overeating. Instead of focusing on calories, the Always Hungry Solution focuses on eating whole, nutritious foods, including lots of healthy fats, protein, vegetables, and fruit, and reducing processed carbohydrate intake. These diet changes, when accompanied by progress tracking, long term lifestyle changes, and mindfulness of the body’s needs, will lead to long-term weight loss and improved overall health and wellness.
