no you are correct! however the there's one thing that nazis may not have been aware of and thats the glycemic index. where diet would affect weight loss for example, say you fed one group oatmeal for breakfast while group 11 were steak eggs at the same # of calories as the first. group one would obviously lose weight quicker since their diet would digest faster this is what I believed they missed.

Question Quick Question Guys!

First, let me say hello to everyone on this great forum, I was just reading this post and I would like to add my 2 cents and ask what happened to 1 calorie in 1 calorie out system? Pretty simple no? Of course you want to keep as much muscle as possible and eating 100 calories of cake rather than 100 calories of salmon and working out everyday and such and etc...but, no matter what you eat doesn't it come down to calories point blank.

Au Contraire 1 pound of fat = 450 grams
What is a calorie? A unit of energy defined as that amount of energy required to raise the temperature of one gram of water by one degree Celsius .
but sugar is going to raise insulin levels that will be stored as fat, including foods that contain empty vitamins and minerals. so the real question is how many grams of fat were in the calories.

It isn't. Unless you are losing weight for a fight. Even then its not healthy but its gotta be done. Diets never work. Only for very few who get lucky. Just eat good get a lot of fluids and exercise every day for a little. You won't be in bad shape.

you guys are right losing that much weight is dangerous. By losing 20 pounds your risk of gallstones goes up as much as 50% I merely wrote the post for fighters needing to lose weight.
On another note the average American consumes a 160 grams of fat a day equivalent to 2.5 pounds of fat a week.
foods with 10 grams of fat:
2 cups of milk
1 double hamburger
2/3 serving of a mac and cheese
1 cup vanilla ice cream
2 cups of frozen yogurt
2 cups of plain yogurt
***2 slices of cheese
this why extreme athletes temporally cut out the dairy while trying to strip themselves of fat.

I love how he ignores davidm724's entire post and only acknowledges his last seven words..

I agree, it's gotta be about the lifestyle, not the 'diet' you're currently on. You make changes to your diet, but you don't really go "on a diet." I'd have to say that not only is this a dangerous diet to go on, it's extremely dangerous for a fighter or any other elite athlete to compete after starving the body, especially as long as thirty days.

Yea Ive had to cut a few pounds for wrestling, but the most being six, and I did it over a week over and just ate healthy and exercised a lot, and loads of cardio, but a pound a day over an extended amount of time seems like your body would just give out, like shock your system or something. Like I said I'm not educated on this like it seems most of yall are, but the idea of it alone just doesnt seem very healthy

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

Lifestyle is the key word!

Make it your lifestyle! Like Floyd Mayweather Jr in boxing, its his lifestyle, thats why he's on top of his game, he always is around his fight weight, always in the gym and doing what needs to be done and never has to go on a dangerous diet.

fighters often walk around 20-25 pounds heavier than their weigh in weight. who could could be 6'3 and walk around at their fighting weight of 168, as I said dieting is not the best; however it is done in sports. besides who ever said that calorie in is the same as calorie must examine the glycemic index. my nutritionist never allotted me anything that which was not easily digested by the body.before a fight.
