I gave a 20 minute talk on my presentation called Hunger Games.
It was a good group of about 55 men.
I am still trying to hone my talk.
Energy gap is a difficult concept to present especially when adding Energy Expenditure curves.
These three slides are critical concepts that I tried to present:
1-The False Premise
"Dieters can wipe the slate clean, our newer slimmer bodies retain no memory of our larger prior body."
The Weight of the Nation by Hoffman & Salerno pg. 168
2-The Set Point
"The research of Dr. Leibel & Dr. Rosenbaum shows that even after ten years of successfully maintaining a significant weight loss, the body doesn't readjust".
3-Calorie is not a calorie
"Fifty year old 3,500 calorie rule equates weight alteration of one pound to 3,500 cal. deficit/increment. It ignores the physiological compensation by the body."
