to my understanding your body just burns a certain amount of cal and it doesnt change. it will always burn X amount of cal in one day unless you do sports, weights, etc. the only way to burn more cal is to get more muscles is my understanding. so heres my question.
im currently 155 pounds and about 15% body fat. lets say i dropped to 140 pounds and became 7% body fat. i have the same amount of muscle. would i burn the same amount of calories?
the reason i ask is because i heard the fatter you are the more cals you burn. now of course if youre fatter youre lifting more weight when you move around so you burn more cal. but i heard theres more to it than that. is this true???
i know this question is confusing so if you dont understand something please ask. ive been meaning to ask this for a long time but i was too lazy because of the complicating subject matter. thx.
