The Quest to End the Calorie Myth exposes conventional nutrition lies and misinformation that prevents viewers from reaching their health and fitness goals. Backed by a decade of scientific nutritional research, and endorsed by top doctors and researchers from Harvard, Johns Hopkins and UCLA, Bailor walks viewers through simple steps to make cutting-edge science digestible and actionable.

Viewers will learn to reject the standard calorie-counting model of weight loss, focusing instead on the efficacy of high-quality food – eating more of what Bailor calls “SANE” foods – to more easily burn fat and boost health.  In making better nutrition and health choices, viewers will learn how to save time, money, and quite possibly their lives.

“We’ve progressed so much in so many areas of our lives in the past fifty years,” remarked Bailor. “It’s time we do the same with how we eat by moving past obsolete calorie myths and enjoying more SANE whole foods.”

Quest Nutrition President Tom Bilyeu is gratified by the partnership and educational component of the web series. “Quest’s mission is to make healthy eating fun. A big part of that is educating people on exactly what is healthy, and what the current state of healthy eating looks like. Jonathan Bailor effortlessly breaks down complex principles so that viewers can easily apply this knowledge to achieve a healthier, happier life… and enjoy every bite.”
