    Someone said this on the fitness reddit and I hadn't heard it, so I asked for some links and was provided for:

    Seems silly really. I appreciate the effort of putting it in mathematical terms of caloric load, but the reality is that resistance training and protein are the predominate ways to retain muscle while losing fat.

Any plan of action that does not adequately address protein needs and training is doomed to fail when it comes to body comp... no matter how much caloric arithmetic you do.

        You'd think the word 'butter' would have been a clue.

        Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

          Yuck! Why?

          Your linked website seems oddly anti-fat, pro whole wheat. Are you sure you're in the right place?

            In the right place to spam that website. All this person's posts are pushing a conventional diet.

                I tend to take most information like this as guidelines, and focus more on keeping intake low carb and making sure I get enough protein.

                  No way, the log rollers back in the day were said to require 10,000 calories per day to maintain their weight.
