on Whether a Calorie is Just a Calorie

The soundbite summary: “Calories In Calories Out” is not an attempt to explain all psychological, environmental, or lifestyle variables that affect why we eat. Instead, it explains what happens to the macronutrients you ate – regardless of why you ate them.”

To understand whether a calorie is just a calorie, we’re talking through what CICO (calories in, calories out) means, why it’s often misunderstood, the reason not all sources of calories are created equal, and much more.
