Calories

So here's my question...

A calorie, for better or worse, is a measurement of heat, and burning calories, is basically warming up past a certain temperature....

So, do all individuals burn calories at a set rate, or are their variables to that?

Don't worry, I don't think I understand this question either since I'm about 10 drinks deep...

Basically, if me and Joe hit the bike for 30 minutes at the same pace and same intensity, do we both burn the same amount of calories?

I ask this because, while I've completely adjusted my eating habits (and drinking habits, despite what this post tells you), I see very minimal results. Yeah, I can go a notch further on my belt comfortably, but the mirror doesn't really seem to say the same...

LOL!

No, you and Joe won't burn the same amount of calories. You both have different metabolisms.

Yep. Also, intensity and the type of exercise play a role as well. In the same vein you and I could have identical 4000 calorie diets, train together for 3 months, and we will both gain weight differently. With a higher metabolism and untrained body you would likely add more size and strenght than body fat, and I'd be the other way around.


Alcohol will wreak havoc on progress either way....

so if you burn 1200 calories.....your intake is 1700, do you have to eat that much back in calories to replace what youve burned off??
