Chef AJ and Calorie Density: The Secret to Losing Weight?
A few weeks ago I published an interview with my wife, Erin, about her recent success losing 18 pounds in just a few months, with the help of Chef AJ’s weight loss program. That episode was the most downloaded release in No Meat Athlete Radio history, and the feedback and questions about the program have come in ever since.
So to help answer those questions, and dive deeper into the philosophies behind AJ’s approach to healthy weight loss, I asked Chef AJ herself to join me for an interview.
During this episode you hear Chef AJ’s fiery, funny, former-standup-comic personality as we discuss what it means to eat “left of the red line,” why eliminating oil isn’t the extreme step most people think, and the powerful concept of calorie density.
Here’s what we talk about in this episode:
- What calorie density is, and why it’s so important for weight loss (or gain)
- AJ’s healthy trick for helping Hollywood actors lose 10 pounds in a single month
- How to eat more but weigh less
- What AJ means when she says to “eat to the left of the red line”
- Adapting your taste buds to enjoy less oil, salt, and sugar
