Nutrition experts Dr. Marion Nestle and Dr. Malden Nesheim will tell you on this provocative Gab with the Gurus Show that calories do, in fact, count. Drs.

Calories—too few or too many—are the source of health problems affecting billions of people in today’s globalized world, Drs. Nestle and Nesheim will explain. Drs. Nestle and Nesheim will reveal some of the misinformation put forth by food manufacturers and diet program promoters.
