The Calorie Conundrum with Monica Reinagel (the Nutrition Diva)
Play • 49 min

Monica Reinagel has been helping people create healthier lives for more than 15 years through her Nutrition Diva podcast, books, online coaching programs, and in-person workshops. As a licensed and board-certified nutritionist, her approach is grounded in science but is also practical and realistic. Monica also co-hosts the Change Academy podcast (with me) and runs the sustainable weight loss program, Weighless (also with me).


In this episode, we dig into:

  • What the heck is a calorie?
  • How do companies measure the calories in food?
  • How do our bodies use the fuel we give them?
  • How is calorie expenditure measured?
  • How accurate are calorie-in counters (like MyFitnessPal)?
  • How accurate are calorie-out counters (like FitBit or Apple Watch)?
  • Is there anything we can learn from tracking calories?
  • What do we miss when we focus too much on calories?
  • What can we do instead of counting calories?
  • What is the best way to fuel your workouts?
