two top weight loss myths not covered: water = zero calories. water causes weight gain at 1/2 lb per cup. #2 3500 calories = 1lb, the correct figure is actualy 700 discovered by me. you may verify eating a double quarter pounder with cheese and weighing yourself before and after, youll gain 1lb per burger. its 70 per .1 on a digital person scale for a total of ten .1's per lb of fat. calorie amounts for "low calorie foods", breads and water foods like popsickles being off.

Thought I'd left this comment before, but it disappeared! The statement "a pound of muscle burns six calories a day at rest, four pounds more per day than fat does" makes absolutely no sense. This is the sort of nonsense that gets written when no one edits the copy.

100 calories/day divided by 22 pounds is roughly 4.5 calories per day per pound, not "less than a quarter of a calorie per day."
