Episode 265 – Caloric Columbo

In classic We Only Look Thin fashion, we name an episode after a fictional 1970’s TV Detective that hardly anyone under 40 will remember.  It’s good to know that some things never change.  What also never changes is the desire that some people have to do almost anything other than count calories.  They’d rather take any kind of pill, have any kind of surgery, or eat any kind of terrible tasting “superfood”, than track the calories that they eat.  This week, Catherine and Donald give you the lowdown on why you should track your calories and some ways to adjust your mindset about it.  It turns out that calories have consequences.  Plus, Donald plays a tune on his cauliflower ukulele, Catherine throws out the baby with the Brussels sprouts, and the couple delivers the podcast equivalent of a blow to the solar plexus.
