All Calories are NOT Created Equal!

Written by

Everyone has heard that to lose weight it all amounts to “Calories in, calories out.” This means quite simply according to the physics law of thermodynamics that to lose weight you must burn more calories than you consume to lose weight. This certainly has its place in weight loss, you really do have to eat less volume of food to lose weight, but this notion has been highly debated and  needs some elaboration.

Written by

Unfortunately we all do not live equal lives due to our differences in will, motivation, effort and habit.
