“A Calorie Is A Calorie” – Um….NOT.

One thing that’s remained true about the fitness and diet industry for the past four decades is this: it loves its math and formulas.

The logic based Apollonian process, has always been crucial to our survival. It allows us to function effectively in the world by controlling our environment, creating tools, organizing society and planning for the future. As important as this forward looking and logical approach may be, it does not answer or address all the conditions we experience as human beings.

For these issues, we turned to the Dionysian approach. Read More
