You are what your body does with what you eat. All Calories Are NOT The Same

All Calories Are NOT the Same

Calorie for calorie - More weight will be lost on some calories than on others.

You are not what you eat, you are what your body does with what you eat at a physiological level.

Gulping down lots of sugar is causing an obesity epidemic

Conventional wisdom states that if you eat it, then you had better burn it off in exercise otherwise you are going be storing those calories as body fat.

This type of misinformation is exactly what has been wrong with conventional nutritional information on weight management for the last 30 years. This flawed position of most nutrition professionals and health organizations ignores the macronutrient composition of what you eat. Their position is wrong precisely because it is based upon a misunderstanding of the second law of thermodynamics. More weight will be lost calorie for calorie - on a ZERO SUGAR healthy whole food diet, compared with the standard American junk food diet.

"The idea that 'a calorie is a calorie' comes from a misunderstanding of the laws of thermodynamics.
The second law was developed in the context of the industrial revolution and the attempt to understand the efficiency of machines. ... The second law says that no machine is completely efficient. Some of the available energy is lost as heat and in the internal rearrangement of chemical compounds and other changes in entropy. ... The efficiency of a machine is dependent on how the machine works and, for a biochemical machine, the nature of the fuel and the processes enlisted by the organism."
[Feinman 2004]
