According to this:
- One pound of muscle can burn 30 to 50 Calories a day
- One pound of fat burns only 3 Calories a day
And of course, factoids like these have been circulated elsewhere, including authors and posters on this site, with varying specific numbers.
Does anyone know where this comes from? A study? Is it true? How can this be verified? I was recently told that this was a myth, with the actual caloric demand of muscle being 6 calories per pound per day.
Does anyone know where I can find out whether this is true?
