HIITCAST S2 E59: Reassessing Calories

This episode digs deep into the definition, interpretation and all the various ways in which we use the word "Calories". Dr Lankford and Dr Bennion dissect Calories in vs Calories out for weight loss, and how there are multiple factors contributing to weight loss that are higher priorities than energy balance, and debate whether energy balance really should be the foundation that many fitness professionals claim that it is. We address the Calories stored in a pound of fat, and how that figure gets misinterpreted for building muscle and the Calories needed to gain healthy weight as well. We talk about these topics and so much more in this powerfully deep episode all about reassessing Calories!
