Is a calorie a calorie? Thermodynamics, metabolic advantage, Colpo, & Eades.

Pull up a seat! 

Brew a cup of coffee or pop some poporn.  Whatever fancies you...just set aside some time to read the links that I will provide below.  If you are even remotely interested in health, fitness, nutrition, and fat loss then you are going to enjoy the next hour or so...

The subject?

Do calories from a carbohydrate, a protein, or a fat gram differ in their ability to incite weight loss, specifically fat loss?

Can you eat more calories on a low-carb diet than you would otherwise and still lose weight?  Do you eat less calories on a low-carb diet and is that the reason that they are successful?  Is there a metabolic advantage?  Or is a calorie still a calorie?

Is weight loss about controlling insulin levels or about calories?  Is it a little bit of both?  Does the satiating hormone cholecystokinin (CCK) play a role in weight loss? 

I'll let you decide the answer(s) to the above questions.  Click on the links below.  I'd love to hear your comments.

Until next time...
