A while ago, Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt met Dr. Jason Fung to discuss calorie counting. Is it the best way to lose weight or is it more complicated than the theory “calories in, calories out”?

Watch a part of the interview above (transcript). The full video is available (with captions and transcript) with a free trial or membership:

    Looking forward to the day when we finally get the science that says we truly only need nutrition and not calories. Would love to be told, yes Paul your right, you can eat 1,000-1,500 calories a day and be very healthy. That you are not starving yourself, so long as your body is getting the nutrition that it needs. The US nutritional standard charts say that I need 2,500-2,600 calories per day, for me this is just wrong. If I eat more than 1,500 per day even when I am running 40 miles per week, I will gain weight.
