Is a Calorie a Calorie? Processed Food, Experiment Gone Wrong


The Modern American Table: Is a Calorie a Calorie?

We’ve all heard the dictate that a calorie is a calorie regardless of its source. But are all foods truly created equal in terms of how they affect our health and weight?

Given the barrage of competing information directed at us every day, what do we really know about healthy eating?

    The issue of sodium is related to the sodium potassium balance in the body which should be K:Na 5:1.But most Americans have a balance of K:Na 1:2.Unprocessed salts like Himalayan salt are very different from highly refined table salt.Again all salts are not equal. I agree though that salts are added to many processed foods and consumption is in excess or equally inadequate potassium is a problem. I include an article from Dr. Mercola and the studies on Russian cosmonauts regarding salt intake.

    Ha!!! Listen to the Q&A part and in the end, they are all Communists! Hilarious! They stuff their pockets with grant money, then beg for more. Should have left the politics out of it because now you revealed the real agenda and undercut the truth of the evils of sugar.

    salt is not the same as sea salt. In my opinion. Wish he would have extrapolated on that.

    Unbelievable how these people think they are so right. First, there are researchers such as Ray Peat who don't' exactly agree. Does Ray Peat agree that processed food should be avoided? ABSOLUTELY! But, not for the reasons expressed here. These people want to place a soda tax on people and yet they don't realize they could be wrong. I use Mexican Coke (real sugar) strategically. The sugar is healing. People have used sugar to heal wounds! Please look up Ray Peat

    Surprised that the doctor doesn't know that dairy should not be eaten with fruit. It causes brewing process in the gut and results in cramps and flatulence. Dairy is not healthy anyway but if you eat it definitely do not mix it with carbs.
    Otherwise, great information and well explained.
