    The predicted weight loss for a 40-year-old, 176 pound sedentary man who does not change his physical activity, but reduces his calorie intake is as follows according to a new model by Kevin D. Hall and Peter N. Jordan from the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, USA:

    Interesting. Did the article say how long it would take for that amount of loss? Also, does it contain info for lower weights than those mentioned? Thanks, as always.

    Caddie,

    No, I don't think they said how long, but I will have to look through the paper again to be sure.

    I will post more predicted weight losses with different weights for both men and women tomorrow.

    I was going to post them all today, but had to leave before I finished.

    Larry, Comparing this article to the recently published NEJM article in which caloric intake was decreased by ?750 calories/day with average weight loss (including exercise) of @ 10 pounds after 2 years suggests how meaningless Kevin Hall's "predicted" weight loss chart is. Another reason why calories in/calories out as the criteria for weight loss is useless from this physicians perspective. Robert Would like to know if there are studies showing actual weight loss associated with "starvation" protests when only water is consumed vs what Hall would predict.

    Robert,

    I agree that there predictions seem unrealistic.

    I don't know if studies with forced starvation have been done.

    When people are starved, they also reduce their movement to almost nothing to preserve energy.
