For those on this thread i recommend reading Ari Whitten’s e-book, FOREVER FAT LOSS, which Matt references in the most recent newsletter. While Ari agrees with Matt about many things (don’t restrict calories, eat fat, starch, and sugar, Omega-6 are bad, etc), he is very much against hyper-palatable food as he says it neurologically overrides the body’s fat setpoint causing you to both eat more and store more. While Ari would agree with principles in Eat for Heat (Salt, Sugar, Starch, Saturated Fat), he would not agree with combining them into super tasty foods that not only make you overeat, but also seem to cause neurological problems in relation to your body’s set point. While Matt believes you need tons of calories, Ari argues that eating the wrong foods can raise your body’s fat set point, where eating more isn’t raising the metabolism as the body shuttles the excess calories to fat instead of using them to raise the metabolism where they would be burned off as heat.
