So i have been doing the program for 4 weeks now, reallly seeing results as well. Which is great, but there is something I don't quite understand.

I am struggling with my nutrition. I hear so many different things and I'm not sure what is correct. Some say with this program don't worry about your caloric intake some much, just eat as clean as possible. But if you eat more than you burn then you'll gain weight right? I also hear if you...
