What is a Calorie?

Graphic of people and bomb calorimeterIn this episode, we explore calories.  What are they? How are they measured? What do they do? What do they mean for “health”? What do they mean for me?

We have all heard the phrases:

– Calories In and Calories Out

– A calorie is a calorie

– All calories are not created equal

Hopefully, at the end of this episode, you will have a better understanding of this dreaded “C” word.

If you’d like to take a deep dive into calories, listen to The Trouble with Calories episode on the Maintenance Phase podcast.
