Soc: whats to get? excess protein calories dont make you fat. seemed straight forward enough Jul 9, 2014 21:27:19 GMT
Metaled: So if I eat at maintainance (lets say that's 2000cals), I then eat 800 extra cals of protein to put me in a 800 cal surplus (2800) and I don't get fat? Law of thermodynamics is beaten? Jul 10, 2014 4:17:12 GMT *
Metaled: Where does the extra energy go? Is it all gone through the thermo effect? I don't know.. it just doesn't make sense to me. Jul 10, 2014 4:27:09 GMT *
Metaled: Update: Turns out Will Brink is an idiot, the study he is referring to in that vid has been critiqued by quite a few people, the best example here http://www.lookgreatnaked.com/blog/new-study-on-protein-overfeeding-a-critical-analysis/ Jul 22, 2014 21:22:13 GMT
