    Bah, not much. She says that me use amino acids as fuel source only when in starvation but I recall reading a scientific article where it said that it could amount up to 10-15% of the energy we use during exercise.

    she's dead wrong here: "Clearly, even though you’re in a greater fat-burning state, no one ever lost weight by sitting!"
    kids in Somalia sit around all day and those motherfuckers are SO cut.

    Well it could be right on the mark if you take into account that she's talking about weight loss but not fat loss.

    I think she doesn't know what she's talking about.

    my big issue is with the person asking the question "I’ve reshaped my body but I can’t seem to lose weight or inches." How have you reshaped your body but not changed weight or inches (size)? I mean, other than that i guess i agree with her, certainly someone doing more cardio than the person next to him will lose more weight, if scale weight is the sole goal.
