The Natural State with Dr. Anthony Gustin

Mar 30, 2020

If you’ve ever tried to lose weight by tracking your calories and struggled, you’re not alone.

This weight loss “tool” rarely works.

And oftentimes there’s a big discrepancy in how many calories you’re supposed to eat versus what you actually should be eating.

So the question is, is there a better way to track your food intake that actually gets results?

As you’ll hear about in this podcast episode with science writer and researcher Raphael Sirtoli, there is definitely a better, more effective approach here and it comes down to tracking a few metrics.

Instead of only focusing on calories, there’s other variables, such as a nutrient density score, keto score, and insulin index, which are far more effective.

When you tune into this episode, you’ll discover why this alternative works so much better for reaching your goals -- including fat loss -- and improving your overall health.

Raphael also explains why you don’t need to measure your food and what you can focus on instead so that you’re not tied to weighing what you eat or measuring every ounce you bite into.

Raphael Sirtoli is a super bright, well-educated researcher and science writer who’s currently pursuing his PhD in the Behavioral and Molecular Lab at the University of Minho.

There, his focus is on combining neuroscience and metabolism to understand the side-effects of antipsychotics and whether or not a keto diet can help mitigate them.

Raphael is also the co-founder of a food tracking app called Nutrita.

Unlike most of these apps on the market, Raphael’s focuses on rating foods based on their nutrition score, among other things, so that you can increase your overall nutrient intake instead of worrying about calories only.

Through his app, he’s helping people reach their health goals by focusing more on behavioral changes that will keep them feeling satisfied instead of hungry for junk foods.
