    what do you think about this latest article at fitnessblackbook? I always thought Rusty to be a smart guy and mostly on point but this makes me really doubt it. Basicly he tells us to eat BMR-400-500kcal to lose weight... i mean id have to eat 800 kcal + work out to lose weight. id probably die.

    I dont know how to set up a link... but here should be the article

    I do think that he has a point though... most people way overestimate the calories they burn when exercising, so his recommendation is a valid one


    this also goes in hand with the times article that stated that people have a tendency to overeat after exercise


    I think as always this has to be taken with a grain of salt, but these articles are written for the general public who of course don't know all the inside outs of how calorie expenditure works etc, so a highly educated community like this site might not get the most out of these articles

    Also the general public does not exercise efficient enough to really make it count against weight loss/fat loss (think chronic cardio)

    In general his articles are very well written, and give a very good starting point for the general public into healthy living and training


    I do have to strongly agree with him about the bit that most people think the rules do not apply to them, that they are the exception! people like to think they are special (I certainly do :-))

    i just have a hard time reading anything that takes a calorie-is-a-calorie-is-a-calorie stance and excludes the hormonal base of our metabolism... also quantity of food over quality gets me ticked every time.
