"Notice that I said "on the scales." The reduced-food-intake group in this study unfortunately lost a greater percentage of muscle mass than did the increased-exercise group. That is an ineffective way to lose weight. If the scales show you're lighter, but you have less muscle to create power, the trade-off isn't a good one."

See, I like eating.
I'd rather workout like a madwoman and eat more than be a lazy ass (or workout too much) and thrive off of minimal calories.
