I am asking this because I read a post jokingly titled, "Why fat people will hurt you."
It mentioned there that, because heavier or obese people tend to eat more, they tend to store more energy. With more energy stored they have "reserved" capabilities to unleash bigger bolts of strength, even without exercise.
I, myself, used to be quite obese, about 100 lbs. overweight. I never weight trained but felt random bolts of energy, and I ate anywhere from 2,500 to 5,000+ calories a day. I ate junk mostly, drank soda, etc. I basically never did any weight training or the related such.
I did notice peaks in energy and strength just from the excess of calories, and I slight urge to release the energy sometimes (run a little, climb up stuff, etc.).
Basically, is it true that heightened caloric intake stores more energy ... and this energy can be attributed to more strength in some heavier people (or anyone who just eats a lot), regardless of training?
If not, what can explain the "caloric surplus controversy" over eating more and having more strength/energy?
