Looking for scientific studies on calorie counting
I may be about to get into an argument with someone over whether what you're eating matters more than how many calories you're eating. I'm arguing that only amount of calories matter, he's arguing that you have to avoid carbs, starch and sugar as they make you store fat. I'm trying to compile a list of studies that show…
Fitbit Activity Intensity
How does Fitbit decide whether an activity was light, moderate or intense? I assumed it was number of steps done in each period, but got a few graphs where I've got more steps in moderate periods than intense periods.

Is exercising and eating more better than just eating less?
So MFP says to eat back your exercise calories, but I'm struggling to find where I can (healthily) eat that many calories. Yesterday I was 230 calories less than my goal, but couldn't possibly eat any more that day. So is there any point in me exercising if I'm eating less calories than I should be anyway? Ignoring things…
