Was just browsing another forum and this guy said that since he eventually wants to be a 190lb athletic male he has to eat the same amount of calories as a 190lb athletic male. He is currently 345lbs.

Thought you guys would like a good laugh.

@Kansas___Boyyyyy ya it was that Jordan guy, but he was just talking about protein. Plus he was talking about bulking too. Like if someone was 180 but wanted to be 200.

Yeah I've hear that before, especially for protein. Do the same rules for losing weight generally apply to someone who is 345lb vs 200lb? Can they get away with a larger deficit, and do the calorie requirements not change linearly as the body fat percentage increases?

@Beans they would lose a chunk of weight but the would run into a huge wall.

The 190 lb athlete might actually have a higher caloric intake than the 345 lb guy in question, so chances are that the 345 lb person will actually put on weight....no way that would be burning as much energy as the 190 lb guy.

This is not only a gross generalization, it's also likely untrue. Metabolic rate is dependent on mass. For the 190 pounder to burn more calories than the 345-er, unless there's already some sort of metabolic down-regulation, if their height and age are the same, the larger guy would need to be completely sedentary and the smaller guy would need to be training hard- really hard- and often twice a day. -3X

Should have been clearer, implied implicitly that the 190 lb athlete would obviously be very active.

I get that, but that doesn't make his metabolism that much faster. There's an old myth that obese people have slow metabolisms, which, in and of itself, is not true. Larger people- whether that's muscle or fat- have a faster metabolic rate. I'm not sure that someone reading your comment would have an clear idea of that. While it's possible that a 345 pound person is sedentary to the point of being immobile, the person here is exercising and attempting to lose weight, so even if the 190 pound guy is an athlete, training at twice a day intensity, he isn't going to burn more calories. -3X

I agree, larger people do indeed have a much higher metabolic rate....Agreed, like I said, I think I should have been clearer.
