YES! THIS is what I was talking about! It's not about sugars and candy and donuts. We ALL know how many calories are in those. A TON!
Nuts have a lot of calories too...but those calories work better FOR you in your body. This is my whole point.
I think it must be a language issue (mine a scientific background, yours a fitness? background) that i'm having with this. a calorie is a calorie. I understand that where they come from is important as far as nutrition, but there aren't calories that work for you and calories that work against you. A calorie is a calorie.
Yes. We agree on a basic level a calorie is a calorie. It's a unit of energy the body use for function.
