Re: Help me determine caloric intake.

Sure it isn't as simple as balance, but it is pretty close. Thyroid and other hormonrs play a part to help maintain balance. I am not sure anyone would disagree with that.

Re: Help me determine caloric intake.

at your weight , The Zone 20 blocs and you will loose 2lbs of pure fat per week , you wont loose your energy...

remember that you are in caloric deficit , so dont try to beat your PR in the major lift ..

slow and steady will get you there and when you are at your desired weight and you up your calories you will have energy like never b4 !!!

have fun on your journey my friend , i was there and did it , you can too !

Re: Help me determine caloric intake.

For the record, you will never lose "pure" fat. There is always some muscle, water etc.

of course there;s a ratio of 4/1 if your natural , and 8/1 if you juice , but 2 lbs of fat per week is very doable !

so 2lbs of pure fat is what i meant !!

Now figure in the margin of error for calories out. It simply can't be done accurately.

There's no way the human metabolism is as simple as calories in/calories out. It's mathematically impossible - if that were the case we'd be seeing enormous weight fluctuations across the board. People would be ping-ponging from anorexia to blowing up like whales and back again, oversteering their metabolism like drunk driver on ice.

The whole calories in/calories out paradigm is something that Pepsi-Cola wants you to believe so that they can blame the consumer for being fat instead of blaming the quality of their food.
The problem with your statement is that your body doesn't wait until the end of the year to calculate the calories in/calories out. I think you are reading too far into my statement. Maybe I should have said 'make sure your estimating your calories correctly'. Some people forget to add entire meals or things like mayonnaise. Counting calories is great for people that have just started and for anyone interested in tracking specific trends in the foods that they eat. What would you suggest that is better?
