Fat, carb, protein - does it really matter what form a calorie comes in?
In the tidy little illusion of calorie math, no. We treat calories like currency – all totals being equal whether counted in coins, bills, or silver bars.
Yet, is a calorie really a calorie, no matter the form or source? Under all conditions to all individuals at all times?
We tend to think this way. Yet, the science begs to differ.
