comment What is a good body muscle %?
You are absolutely right. I made some shortcuts to make a simplified argument. The real answer is, if you want to know the actual muscle mass DEXA or autopsy is the only reliable ways to go. I think a decent assumption is that bone mass is relative to muscle mass and organ weight will fluctuate around a "real" value. So by doing a set of samples with some statistical analysis will give a fairly good trend or mean value.

comment What is considered a healthy weight loss and body fat decrease?
5lbs/week as a prolonged diet? ... please. That is a near ~2000kcal deficit or even more depending on fat mass. Please include something to support that claim.

comment How many calories should I intake and how much should I “spend” daily?
@Robin Ashe: So you are saying that you make a broad statement, and I have to prove you wrong? That is not really how it works. Do your sources have any links to any scientific sources? I don't expect you to cruise around pubmed all day, but something other then hearsay and some links to any real science would be nice.

ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/… . This pretty much is everything I was talking about, someone have later made a simplified model into what I showed above (which I haven't found yet).

I would guess that most derive it from this equation as a form of total potential energy of the fat storage. In that way this calculation is obviously correct. So my equations above should be viewed as potential weight loss, not ACTUAL weight loss.

No. I would accept a scientific journal of some sort. You know, more then just your word, which is the only thing you have given. I am not saying that you are wrong, I just need more information.

This statement REALLY need to be backed up by something. If you make this argument you really have to have at least something to prove it.

The kcal/kg fat I calculated as adipose tissue consist of 80% fat (wikipedia). Free fatty acids is metabolised as 9kcal/g . 1kg [fat tissue] * 80% * 9 kcal/g [energy density of fat] = 7200 kcal per kg adipose tissue. This is of course just the pure hydrolysis to free fatty acids, I don't think that it would be much loss in that process. So the actual number would be at least in that ball park. I can look it up though.
