comment How do gymnasts and dancers remain so slim, yet so agile and strong?
@DaveLiepmann Looking back at what I wrote, it was a grammatical ambiguity. What I was trying to express was that moves like clean/jerk will build power, and that power will be beneficial to gymnastic moves like flips. I reworded to remove this confusion.

@e1che the comparison was really to illustrate the point that muscle size and strength are not 1:1. Can you be strong as a body builder? Absolutely. I'll concede that I understated the strength of bodybuilders to emphasize the underlying point that strength does not correlate to muscle size.

I will add that 3500 calories per pound lost is an estimate, and should be treated as such. Don't get too caught up trying to measure and map out every single lb., and just focus on eating a healthy and sustainable diet. Falling off the bandwagon and putting back on all the fat you lost happens to upwards of (conservatively) 75% of all dieters. I would be far more concerned with keeping motivation up and adhering to the diet than anything else.
