If you’re interested in weight loss or weight gain this article is a bit long but interesting. http://arstechnica.com/science/2016/01/why-the-calorie-is-broken/

Calories in/calories out doesn’t work for everyone.

…scientists are increasingly finding, some of those calorie counts are flat-out wrong—off by more than enough, for instance, to wipe out the calories Haelle burns by running an extra mile on a treadmill. A calorie isn’t just a calorie. And our mistaken faith in the power of this seemingly simple measurement may be hindering the fight against obesity.

It turns out that we’re all different (who would’ve thunk it?) and that perhaps we need to individualize diets to achieve a weight that is comfortable for that individual.

It increasingly seems that there are significant variations in the way each one of us metabolizes food, based on the tens of thousands—perhaps millions—of chemicals that make up each of our metabolomes. This, in combination with the individuality of each person’s gut microbiome, could lead to the development of personalized dietary recommendations. Wishart imagines a future where you could hold up your smartphone, snap a picture of a dish, and receive a verdict on how that food will affect you as well as how many calories you’ll extract from it. Your partner might receive completely different information from the same dish.
