Where did calorie counting come from?
How accurate are calories?
There's evidence out there to suggest that you can take two people who are the same weight and give them exactly the same calories, and actually their body might need different things. They don't always have the same energy requirements.
So can counting calories really make us healthier?
Why the obsession with calories?
If guidance about calories and counters are meant to be routes to a healthier public then they will only fall short, and demonize fat people and people with eating disorders (both thin and fat alike).
