(Newser)   Since former Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones joined the US bobsled team, she's been on a very different training regime: downing 9,000 calories a day to build up the bulk required to push her 400-pound sled   (newser.com ) divider line

It's hard to get worked up about her knowing she's such a prude.

I'm not sure I see how this is about her at all...but I appreciate your latitude on the matter.

I remember when I was recovering from my aneurysm. I'd been on an IV for fluids and nutrients for about two weeks, and I'd dropped down to about 120, from 165, and since I was in the cardiac unit, my roomie was in for a pre-heart attack situation. I especially liked the moment when the nutritionist came in to discuss diet.

For him, she was cutting him off a LOT of fat and salt. The man had made a habit of double cheese burgers three times a day, and washing them down with milk and a box of crackers and jar of peanut butter at night. He was aghast at the whole thing. Then she turned to me, and since I was finally on solid food after weeks of basically just trying to heal my ribs up, and my body to accept the new Daycron tube where my aorta used to be, and the shiny new heart valve that spins--YES IT SPINS!--and she looked me in the eye, and told me that I needed a lot of calories, I needed them now, I needed a lot of calcium, fat, and protein in droves, so she wanted me to try to get in six meals a day, four of these damn protein shakes if I could choke them down.

My neighbor just goggled. I was jacked up, out of surgery, with tubes and whatnot, and here he was being told to cut it out, and I was, I guess in his eyes, being rewarded. Never mind that I was biking 60-80 miles a week, never mind that I had a pre-existing disposition for this sort of thing. My neighbor was aghast that HE was being told NO, and I was just being handed MOAR.

It worked. I put on the weight again, away from skin and bones, and the ribs healed relatively fast thanks to lot of extra material introduced to the system, and slowly doing yard work built up muscle as the ribs healed up, and then I got back to biking a bit, and then back to sparring, and by that time, I was back to eating normally again.

You eat for your goals. If you want to slim down to size 4, there's your goal. If you're looking to enter the ring, it's an entirely different matter. If you're looking to marathon, it's a whole different game. You tailor your diet to your needs.

So much this.

Some people claim that you can't just diet for weight loss, but physics is physics. Take in fewer calories than you burn, and something's gotta give.

I've checked the numbers and he is correct.  There is no chance of him ever getting close to her.

and then there's me... a physical anomaly.

i eat thousands of calories a day, and i will be losing weight (to a low point about 20 lbs below average weight for my height, which i guess is my natural size, because it seems to be my default, if i do eat i want when i want, this is what i weigh) unless I'm active, then i can keep a decent weight...

for the couple months before and after i took the bar exam.  I gained over 40 lbs while i was almost not eating anything (just coffee and cigarettes, very little booze, which normally means i lose weight).  bar results came in, i started eating again, and started losing weight like crazy (lost more than 40 lbs).  now, i work out and i've finally reached an almost normal human size for my weight.  but, it requires daily exercise and a high calorie diet to maintain an average weight for me.  (i also try to have high fat, protein, and carbs in my diet.  but, no fried foods, no fake fats (all animal or vegetable oils), no corn syrups, little sugar and little salt in general...

so, my point in this rambling, is that there are many more variables than people seem attend to.  obviously stress, sleep levels, balance of diet, mixing up of foods, staples, processed foods, activity... magic, alignment of the stars, luck, incalculable ephemera rising from the fact that this world might not have a logical requirement, etc.  there are probably as many variables that are overlooked as there are variables dieticians consider.

When your caloric intake drops below a certain amount your metabolism slows down.  There's a sweet spot between 'too much' and 'too little' where your metabolism still functions normally but you burn more than you eat.

Exercising also raises your metabolism, muscle weighs more than fat, and muscle tissue burns calories faster than fat tissue, so if you build up your muscle mass and exercise regularly you'll burn more calories even when you're not exercising.

You can also vary the amount you eat.  That's the idea behind cheat days. Gorge yourself to speed up metabolism then drastically reduce the next day.
