no they fucking can't you could work out arms 8 hours a day and you wouldn't use up fucking 6k calories
Name one fat chess player
which is perplexing because he's vegan or vegetarian
ben is not fat, he's strong, chunky and gorgeous. there's a big different
potato chips and soda are both vegan
Vegan ice cream is a thing.
Vegan pizza exists.
Both inferior in taste to the real thing but edible enough.
Can't out-diet that fat gnomish phenotype.
kek. ben is a cool guy IRL (i'm involved with georgia chess), but he really is the most stereotypical garden gnome archetype when it comes to body type, sound of voice, politics, and sometimes it just makes me laugh. I will say though that he is not stingy with money as far as I know (he's done a ton for georgia chess and the community, and even for donating time and space without benefiting financially).
>which is perplexing because he's vegan or vegetarian
Lol, its not perplexing at all. Every vegan is either a stick or obese.
I believe it, but the author is focused on the wrong things. The brain uses more energy than any other part of the body and participating in an all day chess tournament would be the mental equivalent of sprinting an ironman.
>At the chess club
That's a shitty meme. It's really more like another 50 calories an hour
No this isn't true at all, it's all rubbish. The idea that thinking hard could make you thin was actually prevalent in the middle ages when they noticed that intellectuals were usually a lot thinner, done away with with modern science.
A disgrace that chess is coming up with pseudoscience after pseudoscience to try to push their pointless board game that is probably just a waste of time for everyone.
The brain is responsible for the vast majority of your BMR. It's probably still not 6k calories, probably half that though.
So I had a look to see who came up with the 6k number or how anything like that was gotten and well, well, well, Robert Sapolsky Stanford University. I was warning people about how this guy was an unreliable unscientific kook since around ten years ago but even I didn't think he would stoop this low, I thought it would have been some group pushing to get chess publicity and funding though I'm sure he probably received some backhanders for his """work""".
How do you explain fit morons then?
What annoys me is that you could be good at chess and be ripped at the same time. working out could help you even more with the braim oxygen and stuff
you won't be ripped from this, the exact opposite. Athletes bodies aren't exactly healthy. You don't build muscle in a hypercatabolic state
>working out could help you even more with the braim oxygen and stuff
I think it does
I play better after working out
Or maybe it's just placebo, who knows?
Maybe, if they are playing like pic rel
>mfw i only consume 5900 cals today
>mfw i drop to 100 elo
I participated in a 3 day video game tournament where I placed very high, and the constant stress leading up to all the matches and the focus needed during matches in front of hundreds of people combined with not being able to eat or sleep properly due to the stress fucked me up really good. I don't think I burned 6000 calories a day though and I think the stress is more manageable for top players who do this kind of thing all the time (I only did it a few times and only placed really high in 1)
that explains why there are alot sticks in esports
If people are truly so retarded believe this, then there is no hope.
In today's episode of spot the garden gnomery. We have the SCIENCE:
>Chess players show stress responses (Cortisol, HR, Breathing rates) on par with athlete rower after 30mins intense exercise
>Chess players burn as many calories in a 6hr game as an athlete rower rowing for 6hrs
I hate them so much bros.
I guess Nepo is a powerlifter then.
Kek Hikaru also plays Chess 8 hours a day and is still a fat fuck.
Not true. Maybe if you were an amateur overthinking everything but expert and grandmaster chess players burn very little calories. They are more calm, don't panic and have better more streamlined thought processes because of experience.
>blessed with an IQ of 130+
>use all of your time and energy to get good at a single very specific board game
>get praised for it
Chess is gay and retarded
It's fucking based honestly. It's a much more respectable version of being a pro gamer. Imagine wanting to be a run of the mill wagie when you could make a living playing a board game with your friends and spending your life traveling and fucking eastern European prostitutes.
Respected by who? Do you think mathematicians and scientists, even ones with significantly lower IQ will look at a guy who is very very good at remembering chess openings and say "damn I wish I was him"?
magnus carlsen is worth $50 million
There is no money in chess. The tenth richest chess player only has a net worth of $2 million.
If you watched a little more Andrew Tate, you would have known this.
Yeah and Judas was 30 pieces of silver richer than Jesus but who do people worship fucktard?
Maybe he'll give you some of his money if you keep sucking his dick
>mathematicians and scientists
lmao youre a loser
>guy who is good at board game: respectable
>guy who does something difficult that everyone else hates doing, benefitting everyone: not respectable
Did you get molested by your math teacher or something fuckboy?
>he doesn't work out in the live action battle chess club
What is a day of playing chess? 8 hours? 12 hours? 24 hours?
I'm sure if you read or walked that much you would burn as much calories.
Then what is your excuse?
A fucking chess tournament lasts like a week
I fucking knew it! Every time I played a challenging match my heart rate would rise by so much even though I'm just sitting there.
Although I don't think I was burning that much more.
