Roadskater posed the
question briefly during one of our recent Silver Comet Trail skates: "What's that
calorie-per-pound number again?". I believed I knew the subject well until
I started to try to talk about it, whereby I realized the 3,500 number pertains
only to fat loss. So I made a note to revisit an article I had read by Tom
Venuto, on fitwatch.com.
Venuto refers to a study
by Dr. Kevin Hall (an 'investigator' at the National Institute of Health in
Bethesda, MD) published in the International Journal of Obesity sometime in
2008, researching the 'mechanisms regulating human body weight'.
