      So if you just avoid sugar, stay active all day and walk places there is no need to “count calories” or “go to the gym”. Is that what you’re saying here, right?

        When he said "stay active" he meant heavy labour, not taking the stairs on your way to the metro station. If going to the gym is too much work, just settle on being skinny

        No because centuries of dysgenics have made building muscle an absolute pain in the ass for modern 1st world humans.

        That's why 3rd world africans who have never seen the inside of a gym and tigers that laze about all day still end up jacked.

        Counting calories is absolutely necessary to be fit, but not to lose weight

          No it's not, if you've counted calories and you know how much shit is approximately you can eyeball it.

          you know your plates being full of rice means around 500 calories, You know a flat chicken breast the size of your hand will net you around 250 calories etc...
          If you stick to basic meals with shit you already it' extremely easy to eyeball 2000 calories if you've gone through periods of coutning before

          i have the weakest jaw you can imagine and a simple fix for that was a thick beard. imagine how foolish i felt for shaving all these years.
          no joke. i changed completely in my life dynamic since i grew a beard - stopped being an incel, got married+kids, started being more competent and much more social.

                Hair cut is like this but 25% shorter on the sides.
                Wikipedia calls it Wings (haircut), Mod haircut, Mop top, flippies, flow, Justin Bieber haircut, or skater hair.

      Greeks were ripped. They invented the Olympics and made statues of ripped people. It was also easier for them to be fit because they ate real food instead of goyslop and were physically active (in their work, daily life like walking and to maintain fitness)

    That depends on what time period you’re talking about. The Greeks had an adoration for exercise and physique, but very few other cultures did. The average medieval peasant would have been so small and malnourished you could kill then with a single punch

    The constant low intensity movement with brief periods of high intensity training made them fit and capable to the level of modern Olympic athletes but without the injuries. Their tendon strength was incredible as we can tell by the markings on their bones where their muscle attachments were.
    Their tendon maxxing meant they had whatever their peak strength was well into their 60s.
    Spartans Macedonians and Romans fielding armies of 65 year olds and those men were capable of not only keeping up with younger men but of defeating them.
    Such as the fight between the Diadochi of Macedon and the Silver Shields of the seleucids.

    food today has worse nutritional value.
    Hybridization and now gmo have been a disaster for food quality because they only maximize yield while ignoring nutritional values. And these parasites dont stop at shilling their garbage feed, they also managed to outlaw old sorts that grow slow but retain the old quality. Fringe farmers need to operate illegally just to save original old sorts.

    What a stupid thing to say. It's crazy that you would even make the comparison between a people that were physically active all day for most of their lives, much more than even modern NFL players. You can afford to eat whatever you want. You will burn it all off if you live in the ancient world, but you won't burn those calories sitting on your ass working excel sheets. Simple as, so now you have to make sure you eat only what you burn off, which is significantly lesser than what they burned off, and add in "30 minute inclines" as you said because you don't have to walk hours per day like the ancients did. 30 minutes is the least you could do.

    As an example, forget even the ancients, Farmers in the US in just 1938, who did much less strenous work than the ancients, consumed more than 3.5k calories a day (picrel). Because the phsycial work that they did, they could eat that much and still be fit. If you, a man that gets out of his bed every 3 days, eats that much, you will be sure to gain a tremendous amount of weight because you don't live THAT lifestyle and don't burn off as many calories as a 1938 US farmer. Idk why this question even needs to be asked tbh. CICO. Common sense.
