You are dead wrong. It doesn’t take a lot of calories to get that big. All it takes is a bad diet. You can cut calories down to 1000 a day and still gain a lot of weight. I explained why above.

You can cut all the fat and carbs out of your diet, and still put on fat because your liver turns into a giant sugar factory, the excess insulin your pancreas starts producing turns into fat.

Have you got some kind of reference for this, somewhere on the web?

I’ve taken care of patients that were 600+ pounds, and in the hospital they lost weight on 1800 cal diets. Of course, physical therapy took place twice a day, consisting of activities such as getting up into a chair, rolling over in bed, passive/active movement of legs. Most of the patients hated p.t. with a passion.

To make a statement like, “You are dead wrong” just seems to me to be rather extreme, and I’d like to have some sound theory/research to back that up.
