Article on Fat Loss and Meal Timing
The article in question: http://nymag.com/news/sports/38001/
In response to this article, Teh El Macho posted this:
So, if without changing my current diet, if I run 8 miles instead of the 1-2 miles a day I do (thus increasing my physical activity), I will increase in size?
ps. There is value in that article, but it has some fundamental (pretty fucked up) flaws. We can discuss this in a different thread, though.

If one eats more calories than he burns ("runs a calorie surplus"), he'll get bigger, and vice versa. Two variables: (a) calories in, (b) calories out. One has control over both variables: eat less to lower a; exercise more to raise b. This is not rocket science.
The cited article is devoted to what happens if one raises b, consequently gets hungry, and thus raises a. The answer? Don't do that. In other words, exercise more AND pay attention to what you eat.
