Memorable Quotes

“Weight loss and fat loss are two separate things. Weight loss is just a number changing on the scale. You went from 150 to 135. Fat loss is the loss of body fat because five pounds of fat and five pounds of muscle weigh the same, but five pounds of fat takes up a lot more space on the body, so it’s more voluminous, it’s less dense than muscle.” – Betty Murray

“The other thing that I think is really important is we have to look at when you do things hormonally that radically change these hunger hormones like glucagon and ghrelin. What we often see is patterns of eating that are now what we would call disordered.” – Betty Murray
