You have been told that counting calories is the way to loose weight, right? Energy in, energy out, makes sense in a way. But our bodies are way to complicated for it to be that simple. A calorie in a cookie is not the same as a calorie in an avocado...if you think it is, then you really need to read on.
The body is complex
Food is a source of energy from living organisms that affect every biological function in our body. Depending on what you eat, you turn on multiple pathways that can either lead to disease, or the prevention of disease. Your food changes your behaviour, mood, hormones, immune system, gut flora, brain chemistry, nervous system...the list goes on. So don't be fooled by the the low fat skinny milk that has been through multiple processes and tampered with, go for the less processed version.
