The Obesity Epidemic — Is Medicine Scientific?

Robotdog Re:Perhaps it's worth investigating... (909 comments)

You're right, it's not rocket science. It's biology, and is thus not intuitively obvious from the physical processes that you would like to break it down to. The foods we eat affect our metabolism, which changes our energy expenditure. Also, it takes less energy to store dietary fat as body fat than excess calories from carbs or protein. Don't be so dismissive of things you clearly don't fully understand.
