Revolutionary You! #131-Alan Aragon: Pros And Cons

Alan Aragon is arguably one of the most in demand and sought after individuals in the fitness industry. He is the founder of the widely respected Alan Aragon Research Review where he and a panel of experts from the field delve into what current research and studies tell us about nutrition. He is also the co-author of The Lean Muscle Diet with former guest Lou Schuler. Alan was kind enough to take a break in his busy schedule to chat with me and I decided to make this a different type of episode from what we normally do. I made a list of different people, ideologies and perspectives pertaining to health and wellness and Alan divulged the pros and cons of each. This is an episode both entertaining and educational with Alan taking decades of work in the field to give you a candid insight on each topic.

  1. Alan cannot grasp that calories (no different than joules, ergs or inverse fermions) have no existence whatsoever, nor can they act, they are entirely invented fiction, totally fictitious. This is a nonsense podcast. I talk to the best physicists in the world and we may need entirely new principles to understand biology. Energy is totalky abstract , invented mathematical fiction, a number, an accounting trick. Energy is not ANYTHING itself, no such entity exists in Nature….Energy is never , ever any mechanism or cause or explanation, as the late great Nobel winning physicist, Richard Feynman stressed.

    Cancer drugs can make victims very fat. We see obesity in destitute poverty. The Taubes bashers are not that bright. Feynman immediately shuts down Aragon’s
    NON- argument.


    1. Hi Jane! Thanks so much for listening. Do you have a more viable alternative you would recommend for trainers like myself who use calories as a unit of measurement in efforts to help clients get to their goals?


    2. You have completely misunderstood Feynman. He never, ever said that energy doesn’t exist. He said we don’t know exactly WHAT it is, but still accepted that IT IS. The reason he said “there are no blocks” is not because he’s saying there is no energy, but rather because energy is not so clearly identified in a static way. As he goes on to say in his lecture, there are FORMS of energy, and it can be transformed but never created or destroyed. This is where the block analogy breaks down, because it doesn’t address transformation or the more subtle ways energy is measured and impacts things. But, really, the blocks do exist. In fact there is an entire book on the subject: ‘Energy, the Subtle Concept: The discovery of Feynman’s blocks from Leibniz to Einstein’ by Jennifer Coopersmith. Perhaps when you talk to the best physicists in the world, you should get them to explain things better to you.
