Sore Jaws, Cracked Teeth COVID Collateral Damage

Sept. 18, 2020 — Stella Acosta is one of those patients a dentist loves. Even with a busy schedule, she never missed her every-3-month dental cleaning, a schedule she and her dentist decided was best to prevent problems.

Have you ever heard that losing weight is simply a matter of eating fewer calories than you’re burning? This is what’s referred to as the calories-in-calories-out method, or CICO. The idea is that a pound is equivalent to eating about 3,500 calories, so if you want to lose about a pound a week, you’d need to shave 500 calories from your daily routine, either by eating less, exercising more or a combo of both.

It may sound reasonable, but people’s individual experiences vary considerably so it’s impossible to accurately predict how much weight you’ll lose based on this math. When it comes to managing your weight, calories count — to some degree — but they don’t all count in the same way.
