comment How does bicycling compare to other exercises when it comes to fat loss?
I agree "it takes the same amount of energy to carry weight between 2 places, no matter the speed at which it is tranfered" if the process is the same. But running fast and running slow are different processes, in the same way walking and running are different processes (even if the difference is smaller). I don't agree that the differences are nominal; the example I gave above shows a difference of over 8%.

Human running is not a mechanically perfect linear process.

comment How does bicycling compare to other exercises when it comes to fat loss?
This page shows that running 16 km at 8 km/h burns 852 calories, whereas running 16 km at 16 km/h burns 924 calories. Not an insignificant difference. This is besides the fact that people have different styles of running and may become sloppy if running faster or slower, thus wasting more energy.

comment Is Paleo A good marathon training diet?
There is no single "paleo diet", as paleolithic humans ate various things based on location, season, exact time period, culture, etc. Could you provide the exact details of the diet you're following?

-1, "it doesnt matter how fast or slow you run, you will only burn X amount of calories for Y distance run" is entirely wrong.

@Aaron Agreed, I can bike all day at 15 km/h and only for a couple hours at 40 km/h.
