The Calorie Myths


My name is Amanda Reid, founder of The Calorie Myths.

Thank you for visiting my blog. They say everyone listens to you but your family (ha!), so I’ve decided to take my thoughts and experiences online.

I find it so important to discuss ways we can improve our diets, rethink our lifestyles, and grow as people - instead of losing all joy in food and living because we are so busy counting calories.

The idea of Holistic Living started as a way for me to share my criticisms of "counting calories" as the path to health. After a lot of negative diet experiences, I was convinced there had to be a better way. I wanted to stay healthy, but not at the cost of having to skip out on meals with my family and sacrificing the things we enjoy doing together.

Since then, I've branched out to share my research and experience on other topics around diet, health, and overall wellness.

After years of trial and error, I'm excited to share my hard-earned knowledge with you.

Come along with me and find your joy of living again!
