Haven't read it yet - will at some point.
Angre Agassi et. al: (Because I need hard numbers to start from )
1 - Based on those numbers have I actually been starving myself by keeping a sub 2500 calorie diet?
2 - Plus, that 2828 calorie figure I calculated above is actually for an off day (since I hope I'd never sit in front of a computer for 17 horus a day). On a day where I would actually be cycling that number will certainly top 4000 (2800 + 600 cycling burned * 2)?
3 - Given both of those are right, how does that fit into the paradigm of 3500 calories = 1 pound of fat, so a deficit of 3500 calories per week should be 1 pound of fat lost per week? If I take any calories off that 2828 I'm then in starvation mode, right?
[The oatmeal sounds like a great snack - I'll try that soon!]
Thanks guys - sorry if it seems like I'm beating a horse here but these numbers are really high and they scare me!
