  • WAPF the way they eat journals

    I found the food journals of WAPF very interesting.

    Woah, my first reaction is : Men journals list a LOT of calories

      Heh, my reaction was: WOMEN journals list a LOT of calories!

      I guess that's the disadvantage of being a small woman. Unless it's a very special occasion (Thanksgiving... Christmas... not even my birthday) I very rarely go over 1500 calories a day.

        Yeah I agree but... well, you don't know anything about these women body composition, just what they do for their health, not for cosmetics.
        So I think what you're doing is right

          Are you kidding me? One guy eats over 4,000 calories consistently on a daily basis? God damn, I wonder what his activity levels are that allow him to think that is maintainable formanynextended period without packing weight on.
          "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

            Maybe he's not packing weight on, just maintaining a body composition you CLEARLY don't want to have.
            It's not because he's more healthy with his diet that he doesn't look like the average slightly overweight older person.

              Drumroll, my partner eats 4500 to 6000 calories a day. He works a physical job and is active in his off time, and he is a lean 230 pound man. It is very possible for some people to eat that much.

                  I guess it's my curse for being a naturally skinny and short guy. Would that I were a bit larger and could eat like that on a daily basis and not worry... Must be nice.

                    Lean 230 pounds guy ? Is he a bodybuilder by any chance ?
                    I think it depends on your notion of what is lean. I mean, 230 lbs is quite heavy, I'm pretty sure your partner looks great but I don't think he's that lean.
                    But, considering the pictures of the WAPF journals, I don't think they can be as active as your partner still...

                      Daydreamer, he is generally at 10% fat or less, 6'3", 230 lbs. Yes, he's big, but it's almost entirely muscle.

                      He was a skinny young guy and then did some serious mass gaining training and a bit of bodybuilding stuff to put on muscle. He works a physical job, lifts in his spare time, and runs. It takes a lot of food just for him to maintain mass.

                        Ok then, sounds totally plausible.
                        230 at 10 % bf is kinda "very" big by the way, but good job to him if that's the case

                        For example, it looks like that for a 6'4" dude

                            Yes, we were in New Delhi during the Commonwealth Games and he was swarmed by kids who thought he was one of the athletes. He is one of those interesting examples of using genetic potential if you see him next to his brothers. The lifetime of athletic pursuits shows in comparison with the other two.
