The mathematics of weight loss | Ruben Meerman | TEDxQUT (edited version)

This is the edited version of The Mathematics of Weight Loss presented by Ruben Meerman.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

  1. You're going to make a packet when you produce the Pills using this theory arent you or have you just been wasting our time listening to you His name is Charleeeeeeeene

  2. Thanks, youtube for spying on me. I have been talking lately with my girlfriend about doing something to lose some weight, going on a diet, do some exercise, etc…and now, all of a sudden they mysteriously suggest this video to me.

  3. OMG – this video took parts of my year 8 and year 10 science lessons, and year 11/12 chemistry lessons and rolled it into one! There was not a single part that I do not teach. It blows kid's minds when they link breathing to the loss of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen to weight loss.

  4. we all know we have to eat less and move more to create a calorie deficit ….knowing where it goes is irrelevant ….it dosent help you to actually do it knowing what the chemical reactions are ,its something the dieter does not need to know ….however what they do need is a way to make it easier and keep satiateed whilst dropping calories and increasing exercise …..weight loss is and always will be simple but it aint easy

  5. he told us the mechanics of weight loss and by implication what you eat shouldnt matter as long as you"eat less" ….what constitutes less though ,would have been nice to have some ball park calorie figures and exercise duration

  6. I’m going to be 88 years old in fewer than 100 days. I weigh the same today as I did when I was 40. I walk 4-5 miles a day at 120 steps a minute, give or take 5 spm. The narrator may sound a bit goofy, but, he is right! It’s the speeding up of the breathing rate that counts.
