If a calorie is a calorie, why do we see this?

    Sure wish I Could sleep better. Feel better in morning fasting than after I eat. Usually don't eat breakfast until noon or a bit after.

    Our data show that the time of day of food intake makes a difference in humans’ energy expenditure and metabolic responses to meals.
    ...
    We clearlyshow that DIT is 2.5 times higher after breakfast than after dinner.
    ...
    Overall, the diurnal variations in DIT, independent of the calorie content of the meals, imply that the time of food intake is important not only in the prevention of obesity but also in terms of diets for weight loss.

    I just listened to an article on utube.It said if we lower our calories our bodies start to use less calories and can maintain on 1000 calories.He said the way to get down to a healthy weigh to eat mostly whole food and not much junk food.

    A generic RMR calculator wouldn't even put that as resting maintenance for 70 pound, 4ft tall woman.

    Don't worry. I'm a li'l ol' lady who lost 1/3 of her body weight in less than a year, and maintain at more than twice that. Don't do anything super dumb while losing (like ultra-fast loss, poor nutrition, zero exercise) and you'll be fine. You might even be fine of you do those things, but not doing them improves your odds.

    I also wonder why it seems to be so important. None of this stuff is sufficient to outweigh compliance factors (at best).

    In my experience, people like to complicate things. It makes them feel special...

    Or a felt need to debunk the theory that calories are what matter for weight management, in this case?
