So you made a New Year's Resolution to lose weight and you're already struggling to keep it? Or, maybe you already broke it. Perhaps you made some other kind of New Year's Resolution and you're struggling with that, too!

I would like to talk on a myth I hear often and that is the myth of Calories In vs Calories Out = Weight Loss. This one is tricky because, yes, if you eat excessively, you will gain weight, that is not a myth...however, the Calories in vs Calories out is deceptive!
