This was posted on another forum and I thought it was interesting. What are your thoughts on this?
What's the difference between these two scenarios and how does it effect your body fat % and physique?
Eating 800 calories over maintenance level and burning that extra 800 calories to be back at your maintenance level by the end of the day.
Eating 400 calories over maintenance level and burning that extra 400 calories to be back at your maintenance level by the end of the day.
Does it matter how much you eat as long as you burn the calories you eat? I would assume burning 800 calories vs 400 calories would put you in better shape even if you're consuming enough just to maintain your current weight?
