comment Suggested Protein/Fat/Carb Ratio?
-1 for totally ignorant and misleading advice. 1:1:1 is not how people naturally eat, is not consistent with any good diet, is not the way athletes eat. Having enough of the essential nutrients in your diet is what a 'balanced diet' means.

comment Muscle gain: six-meals-a-day-diet foods?
Yeah probably, but you should not do it on purpose. The more you put on, the more you will need to get off later (thus losing more muscle in the process too).

comment How many calories would a programmer (or somebody who is mostly at a desk) burn on a daily basis?
You can lose weight without exercise, just by dieting. You may have hard time losing any weight by just doing exercise (your food intake naturally increase with exercise, if not controlled).

Of course, I am not claiming exercise is irrelevant for health. The topic though is weight loss. Diet is way more effective for that. The problem is people trying to ignore diet.

Quite enough, actually, if they restrict what they eat. You can out-eat any amount of exercise.

comment What is a reasonable rate of weight loss to work towards?
The book 'Body By Science' is one source. Another one is ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8210578 (talks about athletes).

@IvoFlipse I have read it in numerous places (science based) that intensive jogging (or similar exercises) performed for a prolonged time (like 10 years) lead to joint wear and other problems.

comment Trying to lose weight, two questions
'Why We Get Fat: And What To Do About It' mentions often when and why the official advice differs from the scientific findings.

That is why I recommend a really good book, based on science. You should not follow a random guy's advice on the internet ;)

-1. While doing sports for the health benefits is a good idea, doing them for losing weight is seriously sub-optimal solution. Running every other day: wastes lots of time; and makes you hungrier, diminishing the benefits; doing it regularly whole life puts too much strain on joints.
