Gaining fat to build muscle

Gaining fat to build muscle

“This next fact is often one that’s forgotten or excluded when talking about the calorie needs of obesity – Every pound of Adipose Tissue (Body Fat) only burns about 2 Calories per day while at rest (not exercising). It would take roughly 100 EXTRA calories per day to support the maintenance of about 50 pounds of body fat.

(Incidentally this is the reason why overweight people say they don’t eat more than their lean friends – they are typically telling the truth – unless they are actively GAINING fat, it just doesn’t take that many calories to stay overweight).” ~ BRAD PILON
