Good point.

There were points in my life where I was lifting, running, playing basketball, table tennis, having sex 2.3 times per day, walking across campus 4 times over on a daily basis, etc., and I could eat as much of anything I wanted and still barely gain weight.

I still think I was a couple thousand cals below what some of these folks eat.
