This means that how we think about certain foods actually has an impact on how our bodies metabolize those foods, how much of the nutritional content we’re able to receive, and how much of the energy from that food gets stored as fat. If you’ve always been told that weight gain or weight loss is the result of a simple caloric equation, get ready for a whole new perspective!
