You want a scientific study that shows you wont lose weight forever at the same deficit???
No. That is obvious, the less you weigh the less calories you burn.
I want a scientific study that says eating 1500 calories will 'wreck your metabolism'. The fact is it won't. You have to very, very little to wreck your metabolism. 1500 is still plenty of food for your body to work through, regardless of your size.
My point of my rant the other day was that everyone's body is different. Some people have to a ton to put on weight, some don't. My roommate and I have very opposite issues with weight; he's extremely skinny and has a really difficult time putting on weight. The only time he's put on any weight at all was when he was ingesting almost 6000 calories per day, and through that bulk phase he never lost his abs even ingesting that much. I, on the other hand, have to eat very little to put on weight. My point was that it's not a perfect science, no two bodies are quite the same. You've obviously learned how yours works and are doing a fantastic job getting lean and staying fit, and that's commendable and I applaud you for it, but I don't think I agree with everything you say.
Anywho, I'm in the same boat as you bbrou.. way too much partying lately. I need to buckle down.
