Nutrition and weight loss is the most scientific...what? I'm sorry but that is nonsense. If it were so easy, there would not be so much research going into obesity. It is plain ignorant to boil weight down to calories. I could go into this in depth, and I have, as I have researched this topic incredibly thoroughly. However I don't feel like typing it all now when the information is quite easy to google by searching for phrases including "obesity", "inflammation", "insulin resistance", "toxicity", "sex hormones", etc. all of which are substantial factors in the weight loss "equation."
Once again, and for the last time, yes, exercise can cause inflammation which can cause weight gain if the body is already very inflamed. I honestly don't care to hear any more about BMR because right now it is simply not a factor. Exercising does not. Lead. To weight loss, for me. The opposite happens. I could pull up several articles describing everything I have said so far, but I really see no point as it would benefit no one. So let this be the end of this sidebar. Thank you to the people who listened and tried to help, I appreciate it. As I said, I probably made a mistake posting in this thread in the first place and I apologize.
