A 3,500 Calorie Deficit to Lose a Pound of What, Exactly?: Cutting Back Calories Carefully to Lose Fat Instead of Muscle

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'.

I thought I was in shape until I found "Total Conditioning" at Lifetime Fitness in Cary

Some of you that know me have heard me rave on and on about this new health club I've been going to, Lifetime Fitness. If you're in the Cary area, and you have not seen this place, it is worth going to - over in Regency Park in Cary. It has everything, sauna, whirlpools, swimming pools, water slides, a climbing wall, basketball, racquetball, extensive group fitness classes, excellent child care, a nice Cafe, and most of all, a _great_ vibe! (And no, I don't work for the club or get anything for saying this)
