About the episode:

In today’s episode, I will break down two of the will power traps that can derail your efforts to improve your nutrition or worse lead to the rebound effect that has plagued dieters.

Dr. Kelly McGonigal has a great book on the subject, the willpower instinct, which gives names to these traps that I’ve observed. So I will borrow some of her terminologies. Hopefully, I’ll also be able to get her on the show!

This is a very important episode because there is absolutely no shortage of diets that work…while you’re on them. Throughout my career, I’ve seen people get results from a wide range of dietary approaches that are seemingly at odds with each other. How can low carb AND high carb both work?

This show is brought to you by us, Beyond Macros, a nutrition coaching company that helps you make a sustainable transformation through realistic habit changes rather than restrictive dieting.
