    Default Calories in vs Calories Out for Weight Loss

    I often hear Calories In vs Calories Out when referring to weight loss.

    Is this actually true?

    Is it really that simple or do other factors play a role?

    Is it a sustainable realistic long term method to control weight?

    Please qualify your answers with some evidence of why it works or why it does not work.

    Calories in vs Calories out.

    Yes, for most people, in most situations, this is how it works. Are there special cases? Probably.

    The issue for some is the tracking. It can get tedious, and this puts them off massively.

    Interesting, I actually believe quite the opposite. Calories are pretty much irrelevant in most cases, and there may be very few special cases where it MAY play a role.

    Weight loss is 90% hormonal response to the food you eat. Hormones store fat.

    Physics always wins. Excuses are what we use to explain failure.

    Its definately more complicated for some people, but for most people, consume less than you burn...and voila, weight loss will happen.

    What are you attempting to say here??

    You make no sense, weight loss has nothing to do with physics.

    But this is an almost impossible task, as you consume less and less your metabolism adjusts accordingly (your body is designed like that as a survival mechanism), this gets even worse when you are attempting to maintain muscle mass, and even worse when attempting to gain muscle mass.

    If you are consuming less than you burn you put yourself in a catabolic state, not a place you ever want to be as a body builder or weight lifter.

    And how come the same person can either gain/maintain/lose weight on the exact same amount of calories and activity simply by adjusting the types or food you consume or even food intake timing?? That completely throws the calories in vs calories out argument out the window.
