I would definitely not assume this and it also doesn't really matter? If someone's on the hood of your car, you need to stop. Even if they don't get off, that doesn't give you the right to just be like "oh whatever I guess I'll just murder this guy."

I honestly don't understand why I need to explain this but I guess americans are already psychopaths and then they're doubly psycopaths when they get behind the wheel of cars?

It is very significant if you keep maintaining the muscle mass. It adds up.
If you spent all the time for weight lifting to build and maintain the muscle mass on intense cardio you would burn insanely more total calories.

Like I'm not saying lifting weights isn't good it's just that burning extra calories is not really a good a good reason.

It isn't a myth since it's real, but the effect just isn't significant enough to be worth thinking about.

no Iím saying youíre a moron and lifting weights will burn calories and help you achieve a calorie deficit without having to starve yourself
This seems to be a fairly common idea, but ignoring the actual number of additional calories people are really going to be burning every day from normal amounts of weight lifting, it really only makes sense if the caloric level at which you "starve yourself" (or feel like you're "starving yourself") is independent of your BMR (including the calories you burn from the muscle), and I don't know if it actually works like that anyway?

Fundamentally if you're a person who tends to eat a caloric surplus, regardless of your activity level, you're probably going to have to eat at a level that leaves you feeling slightly hungry if you want to lose weight.

This is incredibly clear. All of akadajet's statements on the subject today are correct.
It's true that you increase your BMR a tiny bit from additional muscle. It's also true that that's not a significant reason for lifting weights because you would burn much more from cardio and you even burn much more (even though it's not as much as cardio) from the actual weightlifting.

I'm not sure there is actual evidence to support the idea that having additional muscle mass helps you maintain a caloric deficit without "starving yourself". First of all, the idea of "starving yourself" is something that is almost always completely misrepresented when normal people talk about dieting, including the idea of "starvation mode" at moderate caloric deficits which is basically 100% fictional.

If by "starving yourself" you're just talking about feeling slightly hungry, appetite is something that is incredibly complicated and affected by various hormones, and it is not necessarily the case that you can continue to eat the same amount and not feel hungry if you increase your caloric expenditure from exercise. The exact relationship between all these factors and how they relate to actionable advice for weight loss is not even really understood by current science.

I guess the reason we are still discussing this in 2022 is that basically everything people say about diet on the internet is just bro science, and even actual nutritional research tends to be dubious and not replicate.

I don't know why I'm even bothering to discuss this since everyone just "knows" that muscle burns tons of calories and isn't going to listen anyway.

Is what you're saying here "I don't know much, and neither does anyone else, and that's why I can make authoritative statements about how lifting doesn't really help burn calories"?
An additional pound of muscle burns 6 calories per day. Unless you're insanely muscular, this isn't going to be significant.

There are also the actual calories burned from the weight lifting, and a short term increase in metabolic rate for 24-48 hours after weight lifting because the body is repairing the muscles, but when you're comparing weight lifting to cardio these amounts tend to be pretty low.

None of these things changes the fact that there are tons of other reasons to lift weights even if you aren't putting on lots of muscle (which most people aren't going to be doing).

Do tell me how large you think the average calorie surplus is.
If you are lifting weights enough to put on pounds of muscle, the increase in BMR is going to be insignificant compared to 1) the calories you burn from weight lifting directly and 2) any increases or decreases in food consumption and/or other activity resulting from weight lifting.

The muscle mass you put on from weight lifting also depends on how much you eat. It is hard to put on significant amounts of muscle mass without eating a caloric surplus and also gaining fat, which is why body builders do cycles where they build mass and then cut.

All together this means the idea that you should just lift weights because the increase in BMR will make you lose fat is extremely overly simplistic.

If you want to lose fat you should reduce how much you're eating and also lift weights to preserve muscle mass but you will not put on a significant amount of muscle at a caloric deficit and therefore not increase your BMR (also, fat also consumes calories, albeit at a lower rate than muscle, so by losing weight you will actually slightly decrease your BMR).

On the subject of health and weight loss, today I baked a cheesecake that contains among other things (including the topping and crust):
5 eggs and 2 egg yolks
4 packs of cream cheese
1.5 sticks butter
1.5 boxes of graham crackers
8 ounces of goat cheese
at least 1 cup of sugar

RokosCockatrice posted:

yeah the things that affect hormones being so effective make me put more weight on the hormonal theory of obesity. eat sugar or carbs, insulin spikes, your body reads insulin in your system as 'time of plenty dont touch the reserves' and you never actually burn fat. in like 30 years we're going to look back on fat america with 20-20 vision and know why the entire nation was obese, but today they're still figuring out how it's not another case of american exceptionalism.
the idea that carbs are responsibility for current obesity levels was already thoroughly debunked decades ago, way before Gary Taubes wrote his lovely book that popularized it

It's pretty clear that people just tend to eat too much given unlimited access to tasty food

bob dobbs is dead is right that drugs that affect appetite are the only reliable means of weight loss but this stuff has gotten way too wrapped up various moralistic ideas and the naturalistic fallacy
