Weight Loss Is Not Simply Calories in Calories Out

All calories are not created equally. All you processed food junkies out there- that stuff is not helping you. The zero calorie and 100 calorie snack packs. total junk. you are better off eating meat. at least it is made by god.

Meat is made by an imaginary being? That's pretty impressive.

oh for god sakes! OP think about what you just said. Eating processed food isn't good for you, but guess what! Most people have to buy their meat at a market or a store and IT'S PROCESSED! Eating those hormone additives is SO much better for you than a 100 calorie snack pack to control your calorie counts? OMG!

Every molecule on this planet is comprised of elements from the periodic table (pressumably put there by 'god' if you are a creationist), so even 'synthesized' food (I think 'processed' is actually an overloaded term - even meat has been 'processed' by the slaughterhouse) is made of 'god's building blocks'.

A Calorie is simply a measure of the energy required to raise 1 gram of water 1 degree - it is a UNIT OF MEASUREMENT, not a physical 'thing'. Not only that - it is a standard unit of measurement so all calories are, by definition, equal.

Deal with it.

Whatever ........god has nothing to do with it.

Meat made by "God", actually now meat is made by man, does that steak look like the one you had last week ... oh it looks exactly like it, well that is because it is from a cloned animal, so if you want argue processed foods, I think that meat falls right into that category now.

The only problem with the BS idea that calories are equal because they are unit of measurement is that it relies on the assumption that all calories are equally able to be utilized. It's more like a car than people realise. You don't always get the same mileage out of the same amount of gas. Depends on how your vehicle uses it. And if you put deisel in the wrong car, even though it's fuel, it won't work properly, because it's not what the vehicle is designed for.

To presume that fat loss is only governed by the sole process of energy in energy out is naive. And while it may be promoted by lots of people out there trying to make money off of helping people lose weight, there were years everyone thought the world was flat- time proved them wrong. Eventually this world will realise that calorie in calorie out only works when the rest of your body is healthy. And when you're significantly overweight, and beginning youru weight loss journey, you're rarely in perfect health.
