    Is this a joke? You're a doctor? You can't just laugh at a question and say it's wrong and provide no reason why, no sources, no explanation, absolutely nothing. This was a very embarrassing video for the website to publish.

    There are studies that support the hypothesis of "calories in, calories out" in fact a study out of The University of Kansas commonly referred to as "The Twinkie Diet" proves the calorie theory. With just this one simple reference, I've provided more scientific content than your entire 1:11 video.

    I hate to be so rude but wow this was a shameful video for your website which has lost credibility. I'm wondering if I should even watch the other videos now? Will the interviewer ask the doctor a question and then doctor just laughs and says no. I'm sorry but as an adult, I need some evidence, some explanation, some data, some references.... try again guys this was bad
