pWe started a title=”PrimalCon” href=”http://www.primalblueprint.com/primalcon/” target=”_blank”PrimalCon/a in the Southern California beach town of Oxnard back in 2010, visited an assortment of venues all over North America in the ensuing years, and now are nestling back in at our favorite spot of Oxnard to present one (and only one!) grand PrimalCon event in 2015. That’s right, we are going big next September and taking over the Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach Resort and Oxnard Beach Park for a four-day event from Wednesday, September 23suprd/sup through Sunday, September 27supth/sup, 2015. Yes we#8217;ve expanded from our usual 3-day template to have both more presentation options and more relaxation!/p

Although a few weeks ago I explained how “stop eating so much” is bad weight loss advice and how “calories in, calories out” tells us very little about the cause of obesity, the fact remains: for whatever reason (and there are many), people who gain weight have eaten more energy than they’ve expended. Something is causing them to eat more food than they need. Something is making the hungrier than they need to be, desirous of more food than they require for sustenance and weight maintenance. What could it be?
There are the basic remedies. Eat more protein to promote satiety. Reduce carbs, increase fat. Get enough sleep and limit stress as best you can. These are proven ways to normalize your appetite, but you already know about them. I also have a few speculatory ideas that you may not have considered, and today I’m going to discuss them.

It’s funny how we talk about it. We “check in” at gyms to register our efforts with Facebook friends.
