    Counting calories does get tricky more so as one gets older.

    Yeah The In versus out can be a bit vague and the balance between what and how much you eat versus an aging body and the balance of activities we use to kill fat will change over time.

    if ones really serious about losing or killing fat them calories should be counted with adjustments made here and there and doing a safe hard workout to build and or maintain muscle.

    Having said all that shit, muscle is key to everything, and as you get older muscle maintenance gets harder “less is more” has never been more true.


    Actions verify priorities

    A calorie is a unit of measure, there's nothing complicated about it.

    Where it does get shady is that everyone processes that calorie differently, It could be easily tested by feeding coma patients the same calorific diet and measuring individual weightloss because activity is completely removed from the equation but the fact remains that when energy output > energy input over a period of time, weight loss occurs.

    That's physics and irrefutable.

    Agreed, but also consider where the calories come from affects the way they get processed.

    Won't work, metabolic rate differs from person to person.

    Over time may be if the calories are low enough and you are starving the person. Not really optimal for someone trying to gain muscle.

    But you have completely disregarded why food turns too fat.

    Eat 3000 calories and you will most likely not gain weight

    Eat 3000 calories and add insulin and you are likely to gain weight.
