Myths vs. Facts

- POSTED ON: Jul 30, 2015

"Today's Fact is Tomorrow's Myth."

This seems especially true for Weight-Loss Issues.

        The video below contains one expert's viewpoint (his Theories) which as of TODAY "conventional wisdom"  considers FACT.   What do I think?  His calculations seem valid as far as they go, but I believe that there is still a great deal of  undiscovered information that would challenge some of his Theories, thereby changing some of his "Facts" into "Myth".

The Calculus of Calories: Quantitative Obesity Research
                            Presented by Kevin Hall, PhD. (NIH)  March 2015

In this talk, Dr. Hall describes a mathematical approach to understanding the causes and treatment of obesity. Along the way, he debunks many weight loss myths and introduces useful tools to better understand the relationships between diet, physical activity, and body weight. 

Dr. Kevin Hall is a Senior Investigator at the NIH where he studies body weight regulation. His laboratory develops mathematical models to help design, predict, and interpret the results of clinical research studies. Dr. Hall has been the recipient of the NIH Director's Award, the NIDDK Director's Award, the Lilly Scientific Achievement Award from The Obesity Society, the Guyton Award for Excellence in Integrative Physiology from the American Society of Physiology.

Watched it completely. Found it informative, on a clinical level. Dispelled the 3500 calorie cut...but I think it is all a matter of individual body type, mass etc. Don't think there is a "pat" answer for everyone, just a hypothetical. As this video shows, this is a very complicated subject. Thanks for posting..I enjoyed it ver much.
