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)

    It's a brilliant presentation and agrees with some of his statement. However saying that to lose weigh all you need to do is to eat less and move more is questionable. I have lost 8 stone in 3 years by actually eating more foods and off course moving more. I train 5 to 6 days a week and eat 6 to 7 meals a day but this is healthy food. He should be more specific and add that eating less processed food, food high in sugar or fast foods and moving more result in losing weight.

    This talk is just brilliant! I really enjoyed it, but feel obliged to notice that advice 'to eat less' is not fair. To be true it should go – 'eat more fiber and protein, less sugar and move more' and that would be enough, anybody needs to know about dieting.

    I disagree. Whether it's "old" or "new", CO2 is CO2, the molecule is identical. If people and all animals could hold their breath, or more sunlight grew a greater number of plants, or we stopped burning fuel, any of these things would change the amount of CO2. So it comes down to practicability–which of these things could actually be done? Well, I for one am not holding my breath for an answer.
