Episode 15: Calories In… and Calories Out

**Calories in do not equal Calories out

**Proper macronutrients are recommended for individual goals

**This podcast is not meant to TREAT, but to give information about macronutrients and calories! Every individual needs different types of macros and different amounts of macros!

  • (1:06): Calories, a form of energy. What calories should you focus on?
  • (1:23): Calories in does not equal Calories out
  • (2:45): Macronutrients – proteins, carbohydrates, fats. Carbs and Sugar are interchangeable in this conversation today.
  • (4:00): Fruit is sugar.
  • (5:20): We have to balance the macronutrients for each individual person.
  • (7:00): You do not have to create a calorie deficit by eating less, but you can create deficits by moving more.
  • (7:30): We need food to act as fuel to burn fat. People with insulin resistance don’t metabolize food for fuel.
  • (8:30): Is Protein bad for you? The right types of animal proteins are important for vitamins, but you don’t HAVE to have animal protein and you can still get adequate protein
  • (11:45): The body will break down muscle to get energy if you are in too much of a calorie deficit, trying to exercise, and not getting enough fuel into the cells.
  • (12:00): The body also stores food as sugar (which turns to fat) when the food is not getting to the cells as fuel (insulin resistance).
  • (14:00): Protein breaks down glucose so it is not stored and turned to fat. Protein takes more energy to break down – burning more calories. Protein prevents hunger as it does take longer to break down AND it balances blood sugar.
  • (16:00): Skipping meals KILLS the metabolism! Skipping meals will send us into a starvation phase, then ultimately the body will store the next meal.
  • (20:00): We can only metabolize so many calories and macros at one sitting.
  • (24:00): Hitting your macros, for your specific body, will allow calories to fall into place for the calorie deficit if you’re wanting weight loss.

Dr. Jake Berman

After graduating from the University of Florida, Dr. Jake Berman, PT, DPT sought out mentorship first from Bob Seton in Destin, FL and then from Aaron Robles in Jacksonville, FL. Both of these mentors have 20+ years of experience helping people keep active and mobile so they can enjoy high quality active lifestyles. What Jake found was that back pain was by far the most debilitating pain and the highest factor leading to decreased physical activity later in life. These experiences are what inspired Jake to specialize in helping people aged 50+ keep active, mobile and pain free despite the aging process. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to alleviate somebody’s back pain so that they can get back to living their best life- especially in Naples! Over the years of helping 100’s of people aged 65-75 become stronger and pain free, one thing for sure has become apparent: “he who rests rots”. Jake is a firm believer that we become stiff then old, not old then stiff. Seriously, think about it...
