What did a study of calories in, calories out vs. food restriction diet reveal?

How does birth control effect fat gain/fat loss in women?

In this episode of HER Body™, Alex and AJ speak with fellow Body IO® coach Christin Grettenberger about the IRB approved study she was a part of that compared the effects of calories vs. food-focused diet on overweight and obese adults.

They also discuss the health issues women can have with different types of birth control. Christin shares her experience with receiving a non-hormonal copper IUD and the side effects she had to deal with.

Studies mentioned in this podcast:

1. Weight variation in users of the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system, of the copper IUD and of medroxyprogesterone acetate in Brazil.

2. Effects of a Copper-Bearing Intrauterine device on the ovarian function, body weight gain and pregnancy rate of nulliparous heifers.

3. Weight variation in users of depot-medroxyprogesterone acetate, the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system and a copper intrauterine device for up to ten years of use.
