If I ate 3000 calories on day 1 and 1200 on day 2. Is that the same as if I ate 2100 calories each day?

    It's probably a little different. I've heard of people doing something like this on a cut where they'll eat more on workout days and less on off days. Maybe the other way around? I forgot.

      carb cycling. basically go low carb, maybe even slightly lower cal on your rest days. then on workout days more carbs/more calories so your workout isn't so shit

      No. Calories are just a measure of the energy value of macronutrients in a bomb calorimeter multiplied by how many of each a food contains. The way you eat can affect the actual energetic value you get. For example, alcoholics adapt to get little caloric value from alcohol, but heavy weekend drinkers will get fat. Also, protein is not readily converted to fat so eating a lot of excess protein will cause a lot of it to just be excreted.

      That’s not for weight loss purposes though. It’s to offset the drawbacks of diets.

      no, you gained weight both days
      day 1 you gained weight because you ate over your tdee
      day 2 you gained weight because you put your body into starvation mode so it held onto all the fat

      I’m assuming you two are just shitposting but the fact that the sticky STILL says that starvation mode means your body burns muscle to try to hold on to fat is gotta be, honestly, top 3 most moronic things I’ve ever heard or read.

        Except your body DOES burn muscle before fat in a survival situation

          Not eating for 12 hours or eating slightly marginally less than your tdee is boy a survival situation.

          If you were starving in the desert for 3 days and ran out of food supply then yes your body might burn excess muscle to live on.

          No, you’re a fricking moron. Even just conceptually you should quickly realize how fricking stupid this is. So you think your body is going to metabolize tissue who’s main value is functional or structural (and is both difficult to metabolize and low in energy content even if you do) in order to conserve tissue WHO’S SOLE FRICKING PURPOSE IS STORING ENERGY. Please explain to me how this could make sense to anyone not clinically moronic.
          But just to be thorough look up starvation response metabolism. Even more generally, gluconeogenesis exclusively decreases after the first day of starvation while ketogenesis exclusively rises.
          God this level of stupidity is fricking infuriating

            Nah bro you body burns muscle over fat, why would it tap into fat when fat is literally the last resort energy storage?

              Essential fats are your last fat reserves. Your body will burn excess muscle and non essential fats first. But your body won't burn your natural muscle and essential fats unless it really has to.

                Can you clarify the difference between essential fats and nonessential fats?

              There’s no such thing as excess muscle. You have it because your body detected a need for it. It’s not sentient, it doesn’t know you built them just to make up for your social deficiencies. “Natural muscle” is nonsense. What it will differentiate from is organ tissue.
              Regardless, it’s completely irrelevant. It’s never burning to conserve fat, it does it because ketones cannot be the sole source of energy. But again, gluconeogenesis never increases.

                You can totally have excess muscle. Look at roiders that deflate 70% of their size on off cycles. That's an extreme example but pushing your body to build muscle with excess protein is another example

                I don’t think you understood what I said. Being sentient, you can reason that you could want muscle for reasons other than survival. Your body isn’t sentient. You build muscle by tricking your body into thinking there’s a need for it. You can eat all the protein you want, it’ll just get wasted if there’s no need for it. Why do you think there’s discussions on optimal protein intake and no one just takes as much as is humanly possible.

      no, you lost weight both days
      day 1 you overate your tdee but your body couldnt process 100% of the excess calories in time so some was shit out
      day 2 you went significantly below your tdee and lost extra weight

      You actually lost weight the first day and gained weight the second day
      Day 1 you overate but this “kickstarted” your metabolism causing you to lose weight
      Day 2 you went into starvation mode and gained the weight back

    Theoretically yes but not on that time scale. Better to average over a weekly basis
