    Thanks for that. Have had a quick read through. Have left it open so I can go through it more thoroughly.

    True, no one eats just a single piece of bread, but on average people are advised to have a 'balanced diet' which often has calories coming from the different macronutrients in a more or less equal ration i.e 40% protein, 30% carbs and 30% fats (this obviously depends on different individual metabolic types, but the ratio of proteins to carbs is not that high).

    Another thing you can look at is typical meals in which you have way more rice in a plate than meat/sauce, or a pizza which has way more dough than topping, or a sandwich which has more bread than filling. With these quantity ratios, it is possible that the calories taken in from carbs and protein are not that far apart.

    any thoughts on plant based proteins such as tofu/beancurds vs. animal based proteins?

    Foods don't really burn fat.

    The best you can do is eat foods that promote higher body temperature which conveniently means how well you metabolize.

    Carby, salty, sugary, fatty foods are best for raising body temps... :)

    I lost 20 lbs in about 2 months by changing this to my diet:

    1. No red meat during the week.
    2. No soda
    3. No snacking
    4. Abstain from buying food I LOVE as the tendency to overeat is much higher.

    Didn't even workout really.

    That most of it is derived from corn fed animals for one.

    That's great, but also irrelevant, as the person I quoted made no mention of grass vs corn-fed beef.

    You're also implying that replacing corn-fed beef with grass-fed will have some effect on fat loss.
