    You know those moments...you indulge in the mac n'cheese or the ice cream and vow to workout extra hard tomorrow. Or we justify an extra cocktail because we pushed ourselves in our workout. This comes from that idea of calories in, calories out and as long as we burn more than we consume, we're fine. Right? But are we really? In this episode, Jenn breaks it down, debunks this long-held belief and gives us a new motto to live by.

I Can Relate!

Not only a great name for a podcast, Jenn’s interviews really resonate with me. Growing up a chubby kid and now a fit(ish) adult that still has the kid’s inner voice running constantly, I appreciate the investigation of healthy vs. what we think is healthy. Keep it up!
