Calories In, Calories Out

Last week I gave a speech at LUV Toastmasters, a public speaking organization at Southwest Airlines. The topic was on calories and the concept of "energy balance": calories in, calories out. I stay pretty high-level, but hopefully get the point across that the calorie equation doesn't do much for us in terms of explaining weight-gain (or loss).

Mark Sisson does a fantastic job of debunking myths about this faulty equation. Read his post here.


  1. Brian! Thank you for sharing your speech! I enjoyed watching this. You have a natural and easy delivery that really works with your deliberate organization to convey the inherent fallacies in calorie counting and promote thoughtful eating choices. The toastmasters is a really neat organization. Good job!
