Is The Calorie Equation Flawed? Nutrition Talk with Travis Zipper

Episode 540

Calories are king… we know that. If you can be consistent with hitting your calories then you will be taking care of the vast majority of what’s required in order to achieve your results. But is there more to the picture? What about energy flux? What about calorie partitioning or what your calories are sourced from? All great questions that need more exploring!
