I am grateful to The Star, Kenya, for publishing my article on Friday 19th January 2019.
I have been astonished at the resilience of the calorie theory. Weight gain is not a simple matter of calorie balance. It is a matter of how those calories impact the body, and what the weight-regulating hormones do with the food that we eat.
The sooner we abandon the flawed and failed calorie theory, the sooner we can start making a dent in the obesity crisis.
