Episode 41 – ‘Calorie Focused Thinking’ with Sean Lucan MD MPS MS

Episode 41 of the Guru Performance ‘We Do Science’ podcast! In this episode I (Laurent Bannock) discuss ‘Calorie Focussed Thinking’ with Sean Lucan MD MPS MS, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, USA. In this session we get into:

  • The problem with the idea of calorie equivalency
  • A ‘calorie is a calorie’, or is it?
  • Eat less, move more?
  • Trying to intervene on calories is inplausable and inconvenient
  • A more nuanced-thinking approach to obesity & related diseases

Referenced paper: ‘How calorie-focused thinking about obesity and related disease may mislead and harm public health. An alternative’ – Sean C Lucan1, and James J DiNicolantonio
