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. @Steve Haigh Carbon: Is my atomic weight being 12 times more joke to you?
      55 Carbon atoms are 6 times more heavier than 104 Hydrogen atoms…

    1. @Tom Foolery This is going to be my new favorite quote and something my wife will eventually tell my son “Don’t repeat what daddy said!”. Thank you!!

  1. I have watched this ten times. I have practiced it for the last 21 days. eating one meal a day and average of walking almost 5 miles a day. I have lost 15 pounds from 260 to 245. my goal is to get to 225 as I am 6’5″ and 60 years old. this is simple mathematics. I used to do the atkins diet but it gets boring. this way eating less lets me eat anything I want, but I only eat a little and I exercise a lot. pay attention to this informative information. I have recommending it to many people.

    1. @Xyz Lmno why is it when we comment about diet everybody comes of hiding to offer their opinion
      …if it works then…..

    2. @Xyz Lmno another “solid argument”. This is not constructive arguments and discussion. You using “propaganda”, “you dont know”, “have no clue”, etc. – that are all populism and bla-bla-bla.
      Learn what is calorie deficit and how the metabolism works and not from tv-show sponsored by coca-cola

    3. @Turner Roberts you meant when “trolling” not commenting. Xyz Lmno just a troll, he is not using constructive arguments – just “you are wrong” – thats all. Sounds trustfull for you? Thats your choice

    4. @Xyz Lmno You get it. I lost 50kg by switching to keto. Lied to all my life by everyone. Blood number perfectly normal now. Even though I never moved more.

  2. He said he wouldn’t comment on “low protein” diets, but in context I think he meant low carbohydrate diets. Anyone else notice this? Obviously he was rushed for time and it’s a simple mistake, just want to confirm, as I’ve never heard of a “low protein” diet.

    1. @Tomer Wolberg There is a difference between low-protein and adequate-protein. While there are good reasons to have questions and doubts about the keto diet, “low-protein” isn’t one of them.

    2. @Augusto Pinochet that might actually work. Reading an intelligent comment is a chànge.

    3. I was thinking the sameeee. I was waiting for him to say ‘oh sorry i mean low carb’

  3. Instructions unclear.. breathing heavily while eating a brownie. Am I doing it right?

    1. 🤣🤣🤣 if eating a brownie makes you breath heavy, indeed you are doing it very right 😉

    2. “What people don’t understand… what people don’t understand… what people don’t understand…”
      *found the Batman villain*

    1. Almond must always be prepared for anything, so he should have a few mixed nuts in his pockets at all times.

  4. this man inspired and explained chemistry better than all the teachers I’ve had in elementary, high school, and university put together! God bless your awesome practical soul Ruben Meerman!

    1. I’m old…we never had chemistry in grade school or middle school & if it was offered in high school….I failed to notice.
      Or maybe it was my lack of math skills…only one year required, so it wasn’t offered to me 🤔

  5. Here’s a summary:- Eat less, move more, keep breathing and that should be enough to lose weight.

    1. Hindsight It’s literally simple physics, thermogenics….CICO will always work, but the differences lie in how quickly it works and how good you feel during it

    2. @Sheltma exercise make me hungrier than a mofo though, especially right before my cycle commences. Tracking and counting food and calories also makes me hungrier, so I’m not doing that anymore. It was counterproductive.

    3. Yeah calories in = calories out, it’s that simple and _it works for everyone_
      …3 generations of obese people

    4. How is that idea worked for humans for the past 60 years?
      We are a Carbaholic world…..CARBS ARE NON ESSENTIAL FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH.
      GO CARNIVORE!🥩🍗🥓

    5. The only caveat to this sort of simple calories in versus calories out is that some people have mentioned a hormonal thing. Women in menopause can tell you that losing weight becomes quite different compared to losing weight in your 20s. Although I suspect part of the problem is aging slows down the metabolism and it’s very hard to realize how much less calories you need as you age because you’re used to eating a certain amount. .

    1. @scott m True…. Loved your comment from Psalm 139:14 and soon when we are really perfect under God’s Kingdom we pray for wr will enjoy to the full how wonderfully indeed God has created us in His image.

    2. This is possibly the best statement I have ever read. Thank you. I will be quoting you on that often!!!!

    3. @Derek Carney I don’t know if you were refering to my quote of the Gospel, or to Nancy’s quote. If you were refering to the Gospel, some of it came from 1 Corinthians 15:1 – 4. Jesus died for our sins, He paid the debt that we owe. When He was on the cross, He said, “It is finished”, meaning the debt has been paid, for more on this check out Living Waters on youtube, or read the Book of John in the Bible. If you were talking about Nancy’s comment, I prefer Scripture because we are living beings with eternal souls. We are spirit, we have a soul, and we live in a body.

    1. Here we have another Katy Perry “is math related to science?” 🤣. He stated it was stoichyametry, which is the Mathematics of chemistry. Pay attention.

    2. Seems like he oversimplified it. Would be interested to see his mathematics on lipolysis, lipogenesis, and insulin.

    3. Yup. Thought it was gonna be about calorie counting.

      Calorie counting does work by the way. It’s basically just monitoring how much you’re eating. Burn more calories than you put in your pie hole and bam- weight loss.

      You’re already burning a certain amount every day just by existing, this is known as your basic metabolic rate which you can use an online BMR calculator to get an estimate of that. Add to that calories you’re burning through exercise and that’s the total calories you’re burning each day. So, just eat less calories than you’re burning.

  6. PhD biochemist here, eating less is good but you’ll also feel hungry when ur stomach is empty. So I think rather than changing the volume its more effective to change the content we eat. Instead of eating high energy food like sugar, u just eat more veges that cannot be absorbed and get pooped out. Veges are also good for your bowls so double win

    1. @Kathy Allen you’d also think he’d know that hunger is triggered by hormones, not weather or not your stomach is empty.

    2. Until oxalates/oxalic acid builds up and starts wreaking havoc on you. Not fun. But overall agreed is best method, sugar is poison to the body.

  7. “So you are breathing it all out”
    Me – Looks at my gut… starts breathing fast
    Literally the next thing he sais – “You can’t just breath faster”

    1. hyperventilation can lead to respiratory alkalosis, that’s why he said it’s not gonna help 😉

    2. I would disagree w that, when I was 20 something n I made love 3 times a day all that breathing made me very toned, i was in the best shape of my life, love like that only comes around i guess when u seek it. I was going to say once in a lifetime but I have changed lol 😆

    3. Him:
      Me: You sonuva biscuit head!!! I’m going full Darth Vader here and NOW YOU TELL ME??

  8. does anyone else feel like this simultaneously the most interesting and useless bit of information regarding losing weight?

    1. I lost 5 kg in 6 weeks and holding my new weight for a further month now, feeling great, just by remembering exactly this video, its been to me the most valuable speech on the topic, cant discover any uselessness. I just think of those C atoms and I immediately dont want to consume too many of them.

    2. @freydenker Indeed. The problem truly is a complex one, but what Ruben says is the “conditio sine qua non”. I weighed a little over 125 kg in 2012 and am closing in on 65 kg now. My weight has varied enormously in the time between and there are reasons for that, but Ruben’s fundamental truth has never been violated, nor could it be. “Eat less, move more” may be old-fashioned, boring and inconvenient for many, but that doesn’t make it untrue. The only thing I would do is add a comment to “eat less, move more”, namely that “less” means “less than you need to stay alive”. Otherwise, people who are in the process of gaining weight, and most are, may think the principle does not work, even though it does, i.e. it works 100% of the time, there are no exceptions, not a single one, nor will there ever be one.

  9. Just a guy that’s 6’2 and is so significantly under weight people call me Skully comin through 😂👍🏻
