The nutrients we eat and drink & the calories they carry cannot vanish, but they can be redirected to other non-energy purposes. Thus, making them "non-countable."

Calories cannot disappear but can be redirected as being uncounted - Learn how? image 1

The portion of food dedicated for tissue regeneration varies depending on the body's requirements and diet quality and quantity. The rest is converted into energy and fat and influences body weight. Surprisingly!  - Processed foods make us gain weight much faster than the same equal calories of natural foods. Not all calories are equal. The "calorie is a calorie” tautology is wrong.

The negative calorie idea with a completely new Interpretation.

  • The idea that negative calories exist is not new and usually referred to foods that the digestion requires more calories than the food carries. My Hypothesis is entirely different.
  • The new trend for slimming by testing intestinal bacteria and adapting foods accordingly is based on similar principles of improved absorption of nutrients suitable for tissue regeneration and long-term maintenance. (Without a comprehensive theory to explain how it works.)

 

Each food and drink has two digestive routing options.

  1. To become available energy for immediate exploitation. (Or fat storage.)  "Counted as calories."
  2. To be used for building tissues & long-term maintenance. "Not counted as calories."

The nutrients we eat & the calories they carry cannot disappear, but they can be redirected to other non-energy purposes. The digestive routing process has tremendous significance for our overall health, appearance and for maintaining the optimal weight for our body.

 

The analogy to cars comes from separating vehicles between fuel used to propel the auto and oil used to maintain the engine.

Everyone can redirect some of the nutrients consumed to the "virtual oil tank" that is not counted as calories.

(The oil in the vehicle is not counted as energy intended to propel the vehicle)

The ability to redirect food to the "virtual oil tank" that is not counted as calories is very significant.

The food routed into the oil tank is intended for body maintenance and tissue regeneration; it is not counted as energy!

  • The food is used for both body maintenance (engine oil) and energy production simultaneously. But you probably can change the proportions! (Less energy and more maintenance.) 
  • Cars have a separate oil tank designed to lubricate the engine, so we do not consider oil as available energy. The human body has a similar need for natural emulsified oils/fats needed for maintenance, but there is no separate container; it uses a mechanism of routing the required nutrients and suitable for regeneration. As in a vehicle, long-term care and tissue regeneration are not utilized as available energy. 

The insulin hormone (produced in the pancreas)     plays a major role in the dynamic routing of food and beverages.   

The insulin hormone: Link: Insulin (Wikipedia)

  • It is considered to be the primary anabolic hormone of the body. It regulates the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and protein. (Wikipedia)
  • It regulates the levels of nutrients turned into energy. Higher energy production leaves fewer nutrients for tissue regeneration.   

 

The "Negative calories" hypothesis is explained. (Illustrated in the flowchart below.) 

Macronutrients suitable & needed for regeneration or long-term maintenance processes are not "counted as calories."

  1. Nutrients suitable & needed for regeneration and long-term "maintenance" are emulsified.
    1. Better carried by dietary fiber. (The absorbance of the emulsified nutrients requires the exact types and amounts of gut bacteria.)
  2. The remainder goes into producing short-term energy and fat storage.

Adding natural moist foods containing dietary fiber and natural oils/fats or sauces with good live bacteria makes it possible to redirect some nutrients to other non-energy purposes.

 

Quantitative illustration of caloric routing. (Simple, realistic example.)

Suppose a woman eats in both cases the same 2,000 calories a day, only in a completely different composition:

  1. A varied menu containing only natural organic food.
  2. Only Industrialized and highly processed food and beverages.

Industrialized and processed foods are often not suitable for tissue regeneration but only for energy production.

  • In this example, industrialized foods generate more calories in 5% of daily intake than natural and non-processed foods as fewer nutrients are routed to tissue regeneration.

The 100-calorie gap (5 percent of 2000 calories a day) can accumulate as excess fat (equivalent to 12.5 grams of fat a day of about 375 grams a month and 4.5 kilograms a year!) with a much faster-aging process. (Due to slow tissue regeneration.)

 

Calories in the lab and the human body are not identical, and therefore calories can not be summed up!

Take, for example, two people of the same weight, the same height, the same age, and the same sex who eat the same food and in the exact amounts. (For the sake of illustration - identical twins) Will they necessarily get the same amount of calories?

  • The answer is “not necessarily” the explanation stems from the fact that their tissue renewal requirements are not necessarily the same, and their gut flora is not necessarily the same. Different absorption of nutrients resulting from diverse intestinal gut flora and other needs for tissue renewal may lead to different routing of nutrients to non-caloric needs.
  • These discoveries are reflected in an existing technology called the "fecal transplant" that contradicts the common thought that existed where all calories are equal. A pound of iron and a pound of feathers weigh (on Earth) the same weight. Calories in the lab are not the same as calories within the human body.

 

Short background and essential findings that support this theory.

Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the rate of energy expenditure per unit of time at rest.

Basal Metabolic Rate. (BMR)

“A calorie is a calorie.”

A calorie is a calorie" (Wikipedia)

  • "A calorie is a calorie" is a tautology used to convey the conviction that the "calorie" concept is sufficient to describe the food's energy content. The phrase means that regardless of the form a food calorie assumes (whether it is a carbohydrate, protein, or fat), such a calorie's energetic value is identical.

The Trans-fat diet monkeys research. (Wikipedia)

  • In 2007, a group of Wake Forest University researchers published a report on a six-year longitudinal study. They fed two groups of monkeys the same number of calories and the exact amounts of dietary fat, the only difference being that one group was provided foods higher in trans-fat. The high trans-fat subjects gained 30% more belly fat than the low trans-fat subjects. The researchers concluded that the type of calories consumed does affect body weight.

Harvard University Research (Wikipedia)

  • In 2011, a group of Harvard University researchers published the results of a study in the New England Journal of Medicine that followed 120,877 highly educated men and women throughout 12 to 20 years. " The lead author of the study concluded in an interview that trying to count calories, to lose weight would be futile unless one is examining the kinds of calories being consumed. 

The findings above suggest that the tautology "A calorie is a calorie" is incorrect. (So, how can we explain these findings?)

  • Computing the caloric intake of food and beverages by merely adding up calories (according to their caloric value) does not provide a sufficient explanation for what happens when that food is digested.

  

The implementation of the  "negative calorie intake" idea?

  1. Eat only natural moist foods and beverages. (Preferably organic and not genetically modified.)
  2. By adding plenty of moist dietary fiber with fermented products. (such as goat yogurt.) It will improve the absorbancy of nutrients through the intestinal walls.
  3. Consuming a large variety of food & beverages. (It increases the chances that these nutrients are needed for regeneration.)
  4. Adding suitable natural emulsifiers or small quantities of natural oils & fats. Like olive oil, Ghee butter, avocado, homemade natural sauces. (All natural sauces are suitable emulsifiers.)
    1. Lemon, vinegar, olive oil, Ghee, mustard, honey, avocado, and egg yolk are excellent emulsifiers mixed with oils/fats. No wonder that sauces are made of them!

Due to processed foods & artificial beverages, Type 2 diabetes has become an epidemic in China. 

From 2000 to 2015, the number of patients with type 2 diabetes in China doubled by 5.5 times! (From 20 million to about 110 million.) The leading cause is the transition from a plant-based diet to a high animal protein diet, mostly industrialized with processed trans fats. (The Chinese diet even today is not very rich in sugars.)

  • Processed foods & artificial drinks are usually not suitable for the regeneration of tissue or long-term maintenance. Therefore directed immediately to produce energy or fat storage. Making us gain weight much faster than the same equal calories of natural foods. Besides, it has many more harmful side effects.
  • Industrialized and processed foods are one of the leading causes of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.

Processed animal protein overload the liver & kidneys with many additional side effects.

  • The byproducts of metabolizing protein for energy are ammonia and uric acid. They demand intense liver and kidney function. Beef and dairy products are too rich in protein for human needs when eaten daily.
  • Modern Western nutrition combines lots of processed food with significant amounts of animal proteins and sugar. It is the primary cause of insulin resistance, diabetes, and many other side effects, including many chronic inflammatory diseases.

Side effects of eating processed foods are no less dramatic than smoking. However, only in recent years have governments started popularizing new regulations. (Mainly by marking such products as unhealthy.)

 

"Negative" calorie intake - digestive system "decision making" - Flowchart.  


The digestive system "decision making" process flowchart:  

  1. Are the nutrients ingested suitable for the regeneration of tissue and long-term maintenance? Appropriate nutrients for regeneration are emulsified. (They are better absorbed with dietary fiber.)

If Yes

  • If the nutrients contain all the required materials – there is a low insulin spike.

If No

  • All nutrients are designated as available energy or stored fat – insulin spikes contribute to a higher feeling of satiety.
  1. Does the body need these suitable nutrients for regeneration?

If Yes

  • If the suitable nutrients are needed, they will be absorbed and converted (mainly by the liver into other proteins & fats the body needs and distributed to all organs and systems in the body. (The body "does not count" these calories.)

If No

  • Although suitable for building tissue and tissue maintenance, unneeded nutrients will also be turned into available energy or fat. (but with lower insulin response.)

 

Findings that support my hypothesis.  

  • Long ago, I started to notice that food intake does not explain my frequent weight changes.
    • My tissue damage was massive. When I started recovering, I lost weight, although I ate a much fattier diet that contained many more calories.
  • When I started to inquire how that could be possible, I found that all my research pointed out that caloric intake is more than just adding up numbers. Amazingly, no one has suggested another theory.
  • The Wake Forest research cited above clearly shows that monkeys fed different fat types, but the same calories have different weight gain outcomes. So it should be clear that the dictum "a calorie is a calorie" is wrong.
  • The Harvard University Research cited above comes to the same conclusion. But again, without proposing an alternative theory.
  • Studies indicate that trans-fats tend to raise insulin levels too much higher than do natural fats. The same effect occurs with artificial fructose. (Found in soft drinks) 
    • Many specialists consider the insulin hormone (secreted by the pancreas) one of the main reasons our body triggers fat storage.
  • When eating moist starch (like rice) with small quantities of natural fat (like olive oil or Ghee), the insulin response is much lower than eating rice separately. 

 

Current methods of computing food & beverages' calorie intake are not accurate.

  • You have to subtract all the nutrients that are not utilized for energy consumption or divide the BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) into the two main categories mentioned above.
  • Not all calories are equal. The "calorie is a calorie” tautology is wrong.

How to calculate the caloric intake of food more accurately? 

  • Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) should be divided into two major processes ("Long-term maintenance" and energy & fat) and not regarded as one. I believe better estimates of caloric intake will be made if this methodology is employed.
  • This might also better explain the significant variance in BMR found in studies. The claim that variation is due to fat-free body mass might be erroneous as fat tissue does not need regeneration.

The energy conservation laws do not allow the energy to be lost but for other purposes.

  • Suppose we want to get an estimate of how many calories were used to produce energy. In that case, it is necessary to subtract from the overall food & beverage intake the component used for long-term tissue regeneration & maintenance.
  • The current calorie intake model - (Minus) Emulsified macronutrients (Fats, proteins, carbohydrates sugars) that are designated for long-term "maintenance" and tissue regeneration. (Per same time unit.)

 

Summary & conclusions. 

Not all calories are equal. The "calorie is a calorie” tautology is wrong.

Every food and beverage has two options for routing within the digestive system.

  1. To become available energy for immediate exploitation. (Or fat storage.)
  2. To be used for building tissues & long-term maintenance.
  • The nutrients we eat & the calories they carry cannot disappear, but they can be redirected to other non-energy purposes.
  • This process has tremendous significance for our overall health, overall appearance, and maintaining the optimal weight for our body.

How to calculate the caloric intake of food more accurately? 

  • It is quite difficult to precisely know how much emulsified food to subtract because it is hard to measure what happens inside the body. Indirect measures and studies might give better answers in the future. The figures that could be subtracted are very significant for weight loss and maintaining good health.

The implementation of the  "Negative calorie intake" idea?

  • By adding plenty of moist dietary fiber with fermented products. (such as goat yogurt.) It will improve the absorbancy of nutrients through the intestinal walls.
  • Consuming a large variety of food & beverages. (It increases the chances that these nutrients are needed for regeneration.)
  • Adding suitable natural emulsifiers or small quantities of natural oils & fats. Like olive oil, Ghee butter, avocado, homemade natural sauces. (All natural sauces are suitable emulsifiers.)
    • Lemon, vinegar, olive oil, Ghee, mustard, honey, avocado, and egg yolk are excellent emulsifiers mixed with oils/fats. No wonder that sauces are made of them!

 

Foods that allow tissue regeneration are more nutritious, healthier, and less fattening. Unsurprisingly such food must be natural, unprocessed. It requires the presence of natural oils and fats, along with dietary fiber and good bacteria.

The keto diet is indeed slimming, especially in the short term but very unhealthy. (Not recommended)

Hi Helen White,
A low carb diet is a very trendy diet with quite immediate results, but it has side effects. You will find the full explanation in an article discussing the multiplicity of diets.

To fill a plate, without carbohydrates and starches, people eat a lot of protein and fats (most of them from the animal). The name of the diet is derived from the decomposition products of fats - ketones.

A ketogenic diet places a heavy burden on the liver and kidneys, which must decompose high amounts of proteins and fats. (especially from the animal) in the modern world, with the ready-made diet and processed foods, the liver and kidneys work extra hard - they should not be overloaded anymore.

It is worth looking at Asian peoples who ate rice, lunch, and dinner every day. They were skinny until 20 years ago. What made them fat is industrialized and processed food.

There are now hundreds, if not thousands of diets, most of them simply do not allow for satiety and do not support good health.

Nutrition experts have long realized that weight loss is simply the result of a healthy body. Weight loss for weight loss without a change in lifestyle is most often doomed to failure.

For people who are interested in understanding the principles of healthy weight loss, I recommend reading the short article with the link below.
