comment How does exhaustion impact calorie expenditure?
You are assuming that all things remain equal. Yes, you may be recruiting other muscles, but that is because the intended muscles are not working to capacity. They are working less, while others are working more. There may be a negligible difference, but it's probably not a meaningful variance.

While I applaud your answer, the question itself is off topic for the site.

comment Why I am not losing weight?
There is quite a bit of debate on the 3500 calories recently, but I agree that the OP needs more time and attention to diet.

comment Can one calculate the energy expenditure of specific lifts?
I have a degree in exercise science, I am not aware of any specific formulae for individual lifts (That's not to say they don't possibly exist, just that I haven't found any). You could measure it if you have access to a lab with direct gas analysis to measure oxygen consumed, but that's about the only way that I'm aware of to get that specific. There are commonly accepted values for weightlifting per hour by body weight, however.

Try it and see how you feel. Nobody can tell you yes or no, since every person reacts differently to things.

I would recommend reading up on the Galloway run/walk program.

comment How much proteins during rest day?
@IvanIvković - I think you mean .75 to 1g per kilogram, not pound. For the OP, 1-2 g/kg should be plenty as a daily intake. 2.5 g/kg is overkill, it likely won't do any harm but you probably aren't getting anything more out of the extra intake.

comment Increase in Belly size after workout
Sorry, but that's not true. I was a programmer, and now manage a programming group. I sit for 8+ hours a day in front of a computer, and my waistline doesn't grow. If that were true, your waist would also grow while you slept, because that's 8 hours of not moving around either.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about shopping recommendations.

comment Running speed - treadmill vs outdoor
Your feet move forward in the air, not on the ground. Your feet move backward (in the same direction as the belt) to propel you forward. I don't have physics and never understood the argument, I just read it (Wish I could remember where).

comment Running speed - treadmill vs outdoor
Because the belt theoretically "pulls" the foot back faster, which makes it easier to maintain a higher speed. All of that was basically disproven, running on a treadmill is only very marginally different than running outside.

comment Running speed - treadmill vs outdoor
Your most likely culprit is heat. A lot of people run slower due to heat buildup, because you don't have the breeze of running to cool you off. I don't run slower, but I find that I can't run as long on a treadmill (or on a bike trainer for that matter) for that reason.

comment Running speed - treadmill vs outdoor
No, you aren't running faster to counteract the belt. I forget where I saw it, but there were a bunch of physicists debating it and that was debunked. (If anything, the belt would make it easier, not harder).

comment Research that says exercise counteracts bad diet
There are a few studies around that show exercise mitigates bad eating. The ones I found were centered around holiday type binging and alcohol consumption, but all were published studies. colorado.edu/news/releases/2013/04/16/… and opus.bath.ac.uk/20817

comment Because of alcohol consuming, cheeks are getting bigger. Is there a way to reduce it?
Voted to close as being off topic for general health advice. But, you could always stop consuming alcohol.

comment Chocolate and coconut
+1 for a clear and concise answer. Just as an addendum, it's the flavonoids that are the benefit in dark chocolate. Cocoa may have some of the same benefits.
