All the studies, government ideas aside...my issue is, concerning the ideal of cutting calories, as seen in the article above, that when I was training hard, it took a lot for me to maintain just over 125 lb bodyweight on around 3,000+ calories; it's not always about the amount of calories, sometimes it's about what people are doing with them, that's what they are so blatantly overlooking.

They are taking calories, fat, sugar, out of context.
Indeed. You see so many people these days, at a healthy weight mind you, go after 'low calorie' foods and then run on a treadmill for 15 hours a week to 'burn off' all that evil fuel for your body...and then they wonder why they are frail and without energy.

Just like gasoline, some of us are bigger fuel-guzzlers than others.
