#FringeFriday Calories in equals Calories out, right? Yes. I mean no! Maybe? Energy cannot be created or destroyed, according to The Law of Conservation of Energy, aka the first law of thermodynamics. And, by that definition weight loss should be simple, right? All you have to do is measure how much energy your body consumes on a given day and the secret to weight loss success is just lowering the intake and voi-la, six pack city, population—you bro! It’s this simplistic thinking that I was guilty of propagating for most of my training career; I mean it’s just simple physics, right? Have a conversation with anyone who has attempted weight loss, or worse yet has any sort of chronic illness involved and you will discover that weight loss is seldom as simple as lowering calories. Science is constantly evolving and our knowledge on how the body truly works has gone through a bit of a paradigm shift, as gut health has become a bigger player in our health than most of us ever thought. For instance, there are 100 trillion cells in the human body each doing thousands of metabolic reactions per second, but you are outnumbered 10-1 by microbes (bacteria, fungi, archaea, and viruses). We are made up of 22,000 human genes, 8 million bacteria genes (99% of which are helpful), 500,000 fungi, 80,000 archaea, and some unkown amount of virus dna, and in most humans, parasites. This means that you are 1% human by gene count. To put that into perspective, a galaxy is thought to have 100 billion stars, the human gut has 1000 times that many microbes! It was not that long ago that scientist thought we had four types of bacteria in our gut. Understanding and manipulating the gut biome is going to change medicine, it’s the equivalent of discovering a lost continent, maybe even a whole universe!
