  • This is probably one of the best write-ups I've ever read on weight loss, and I'm a pharmacist, I'm surrounded by allied healthcare individuals every day. Kudos to you!!

    Really good post Robin. Likewise from a purely thermo-chemical standpoint. the ignition of 1 pound of fat would indeed yield the energy (approximately) required to raise 3500 Kilos of water 1 degree Celsius at one standard atmospheric pressure (air pressure at sea level)

    What? lol :noway:

    I heard a lot of people might be converging on this old thread soon, so thought I'd stake out a spot now.

    This explains a great deal of the weird, uneven weight-loss patterns I have experienced. I wish I had found this a couple of months ago. Thank you.
