update edit:still stuck on this a bit - if anyone wants to be my consultant on this you guys can get at me email email@example.com or aim: moongbean99
sorta just want to bounce some ideas of someone with some knowledge about this - like theory and whatnot.
This was a question I was posed to answer by my nutrition professor. His question is a pretty interesting one, and since I am facisinated by nutrition and the like (I am in college right now) I was wondering how you guys here would respond to the challenge. Personally, I went from 220lbs to 165lbs by virtue of eating a lot more protein and a lot less carbs - maybe not as strict as Atkins, but still pretty good and a lot of excersise (lifting mainly, lacrosse and basketball for cardio).
Why does an individual eating above Caloric needs in which those
Calories are primarily derived from protein sources still lose weight? In other
words, not all Calories are the same, or are they? And where do the Calories "go".
He doesnt want anecdotal data, albeit important, not epidemiological data, albeit a little more important, but the "why" behind all this....if it's known. There are the Laws of Thermodynamics, three in all....the first in question here.
