  • What does burning calories have to do with building lean body mass? Both are just side effects of exercise. The only really useful thing about measuring workout calories it to make a game of it. However, it can also be harmful because that can encourage people to over train or to do the wrong kind of training too. It…
  • There are many forms of exercise and the exercise that builds muscle does it by breaking down the muscle fibers under stress. Then the body rebuilds those fibers. It is all controlled by hormones at that point and has little to do with energy as long as there is enough. The body doesn't have to break down proteins for…
  • There could be a lot of difference based on how fasted your body is. Some people might eat late and maybe it is less than 8 hours when they start their cardio. I think there is a big difference between 8 hours of fasting and over 12 hours of fasting, at least for myself. That probably varies greatly from person to person…
  • Hmmm ... more reductionism. It isn't that simple. * You can't know from day to day if you have a calorie surplus or not. * Weight from exercise can be a simple as your muscles holding on to more glycogen which is 75% water. * No one can really tell for sure how many calories the body consumes in exercise. The estimates…
  • Day 28 ... 272s, I just couldn't hold on to 300 today. Just a 270 & 300 day to go.
  • @Joanna2012B no harm in taking off an extra day if you need it. You'll still be ahead of me! However you have one more day to go!!! What's a little pain? :cold_sweat:
  • No, but that is a part of it. Again calories out isn't independent of calories in. That doesn't mean one can't force their weight up and if done for long enough probably set their body to a much higher weight. Forcing the weight down is normally much more difficult than forcing it up. The amount of calories is consumed is…
  • I've never seen you or others accept anyone logs. You aren't looking for proof you are just looking for more reason to attack. I'm not going to play that stupid game.
  • Sigh ... 2500 kc is where I'm comfortable at. My body fat is about 20% maybe slightly lower, so I'm not so overweight as you imply. The reasons why I don't share my log are as follows: * Logs are never accepted at face value, so it is pointless. * Many of my foods are Japanese foods that most people outside of Japan…
  • I find for running fasted cardio makes a huge difference for me. While it took a few weeks before it was completely comfortable I soon found it easier to run in the fasted state. My slow morning runs are as fast as my fast mid-day runs and I am able to put in more distance in the morning. A big part of the difference is it…
  • That is one messed up article, it constantly points out that there are differences while trying to say there are not differences. For example: "And, yes, different macronutrients can have different effects here, that’s not what I’m talking about." and "The research, however, is very clear: not everybody has it as easy as…
  • @gw186 it is important to let injuries heal. While I'm planking now I had to back off a lot of things because of elbow pain. It has been 9 months since I injured my elbows and while I'm getting better, tendons heal slowly. Anyway the challenge will still be there when you are ready. I'm shocked I made it to the 300s level.…
  • Day 27 done (240s) ... I did 305s. A bit painful but I'm rather surprised I was able to hold on.
  • I've been eating 2500 kc /day and above. I've seen countless thread were people attack logs. Besides most people here don't have a clue about a lot of Japanese foods. The calorie counting mindset here is simply insane and I'm not going to play that game. Proof is simple, removed added refined sugar from your diet and see…
  • Again another person that claims they know what I'm doing what I did more than I do. You are simply incorrect. I spent two years torturing myself tying to make calorie deficit and exercise work after it quite working for me. While I could move my weight, it wouldn't stick. Then I started changing what foods I ate and that…
  • Some of the facts are: 1) No one can actually accurately count calories in. Weight of food isn't enough because the makeup of food also varies and the base values are just estimates. The variations over geographic regions can be large. There are also variations in food based on what the weather was, the soil conditions and…

  • That has to do with how fat storage works. I was replying to the post about the research.
  • Calorie restriction diets typically do work short term, there isn't any dispute of that. However people are using thermodynamics mumbo jumbo that they don't understand to justify a reductionism that is absurd. For the most part people just parrot it without any understanding of it. For most people diets fail and within a…
  • 5 day diet studies, wow ... that refutes nothing. It is possible to find various studies that show conflicting information. One needs to look a little deeper. For people that are reversing type 2 diabetes, they are often fasting for weeks to get the great results. Insulin resistance isn't something that is modify on a few…
  • I just picked that one for her. There have been many studies showing that fructose consumption leads to metabolic issues. I'm shocked at how lazy people are here. You have to be hand held for everything it seems. Lean to do a little legwork yourself. A few random articles…
  • Day 25 (210s) I overshot and did 260s in one painful plank. I will probably take a rest day tomorrow, my gut is feeling a bit sore and the last 4 days look brutal.
  • If you care to dig in they reference many studies. However here is one for you; http://www.whilesciencesleeps.com/pdf/647.pdf
  • "Oh crap half a million steps is pretty crazy." @mdonsbach - it is crazy awesome. It is amazing the body can do it and do it month after month!
  • I'm shooting for 300k in Oct. I have to get my leg back in good working order.

  • Do you even have a clue what thermodynamics is even about. I spent a hellish year in college with thermodynamics, although that was easier than some of the requirements. Humans aren't closed systems and no "laws" are broken, there are just far more inputs and outputs than you account for.…
  • There is a wealth of research showing you are wrong. I used to believe the same, I was wrong and ended torturing myself for years because of it. Fructose is a serious problem in the quantities it is consumed in our modern diets. It isn't the only issue but for me it was a driving issue.…
  • I used the food diary for a few months but frankly after a couple weeks it was pretty useless. All it did was tell me in six weeks I would weigh x more kg. The main use of it was trying to see how the food broke down, but many of the foods I eat weren't even in the database or weren't even close to correct. For example…
