      a calorie is a unit of measurement. 1 calorie of bricks equals 1 calorie of feathers.

      Yes all calories are equal, if you burn more calories than you consume, regardless of what foods you chose to consume, you will lose weight.

      The difference is the nutritional content of those foods though, unhealthy foods will have adverse effects on the body over time, such as affecting your insulin, hormone levels, metabolic rate, essentially the mechanisms responsible for processing energy may become less effective due to a suboptimal diet, so eventually you may not process that 1000 calories with the same efficiency

      on paper, yes
      but in the real world if you eat garbage you will feel like garbage and probably sit on your ass all day burning less calories, but if you somehow manage to factor all that out you would still end up with worse body composition even at the same weight as someone who eats healthier

      i understand now, since i dont want to lose muscle as im already skinny ill buy cheap protein beans and rice and try to cook it in my car. Thank you very much guys!

    no, this is why world hunger is not real. this is why africans living in mud huts are all obese.
    calories are not equal, if its super calories from ramen you will gain weight even if you only eat 300kcal per day

    the only thing that makes calories not equal, the thing that can possibily fuck up CICO, is the glycemic index.
    even if you are getting the exact amount of calories you need to lose the weight, if you are constantly spiking your insulin it is much harder to lose weight.
    which is why fasting works so well. hours and hours without eating you start straight up burning your body fat rather than calories from food.

      Glycemic index is bullshit. People can't count calories. Period. Don't post a study where the data set is self-reported calorie intake.
      CICO is absolute. No exceptions, no fuckery, no tricks, no fat chicks. Even in diabetics, where glycemic index actually matters (but it matters for different reasons). In real humans, glycemic index is unimportant. Fats are not people, but the same goes for them.
      Or if you want to be pedantic, calories absorbed, calories expended is absolute.

        Cico as a concept may be the ultimate truth but only guiding yourself on how many calories you think you are eating vs how many calories you think you are burning is foolish because its just not true.
        And anyone Who has dieted/cut múltiple times in their lifes Will tell you that some cuts you barely eat yet the scale doesnt move while in others you lose weight despite being in an apparent surplus.
        As an extra note I Will say that in those ilogic surplus/maintainance cuts you have way more energy in your daily Life so that may be one of the causes.

          Ay bro, Just because you have a harder time cutting one time over the other doesn't detract from cico. Lots of studies have shown in a cut your metabolism goes down, your NEAT goes down, among other things. One way or another, the O of CICO is decreasing. Thereby making the weight loss slower. It is all explained and accounted for with CICO. The same cannot be said about glycemic index or whatever

    You would lose weight. Back in 2018, I used to OMAD with noodles all the time. However, from experience, I don't recommend it. If you're gonna do OMAD, make sure your meal is highly nutritious and enough to keep you satiated while still being in a caloric deficit.
