    doesn't matter brah. you're building muscle, and muscle burns calories more efficiently than fat does... you're giving yourself long term benefits.
    you're less than a drop in all the oceans, and god is laughing at your problems.

    doesnt matter, adjust your independent variables, ie, the calories you eat.
    what you burn can vary too much and is really a huge guess,
    atleast only adjusting food intake gives you a better estimate of calories in/out.
    We all come from humble beginnings.

    Studies everywhere tell you everything, listen to your body instead and you'll succeed.

    +1. People tend to way overestimate weight training caloric expenditure.

    Yeah, muscle burns about 3 calories more per lbs than fat. So if you have 20lbs muscle vs. 20 lbs fat you're up a whopping 60 calories a day! Not even worth mentioning.
