A calorie is not a calorie by a long run

because you cannot ingest a "calorie". Calories do not exist. They are a measure of potential energy stored within a cell and that cell comes in a package deal with other stuff. It matters greatly what form the calorie came in and not just fat vs carb vs protien. The vessel - the actual food which holds the fat/carb/protien is vitally important to how the body handles the potential energy as well - not too mention the other vital things your body needs in addition to calories.

Frankly we need to call obesity what it is - laziness and lack of pride.
