Body Weight and Body Mass Size

Body Weight & Body Mass Size
Whereas there is no theoretical upper limit to body weight in humans, there is probably a limit to lean body mass size, as there is for stature, that may be indicated as 100 kg for men and 70 kg for women. The more the weight increases and the lean body mass approaches that limit the smaller is its increase in proportion to body weight increase, and thus the composition of weight gain or loss varies according to the starting body weight. Consequently, the weight gained or lost by a heavier individual, containing less lean body mass, consumes less and costs or yields more in comparison with the same weight gained or lost by a lighter individual.

Weight Loss & Gain
Therefore, a heavier person, for the same energy intake variation, gains or loses more weight and in a longer time than a lighter person. To give an example, one kilogram of weight gained or lost by a very lean person, composed of 50 percent lean body mass, consumes about 22.5 Cal/day and costs or yields about 6,000 or 4,000 Calories, whereas one kilogram gained or lost by a person so heavy that the percentage of lean body mass in his/her weight variation can be considered negligible consumes about 5 Cal/day and costs or yields about 10,000 or 7,500 Calories, respectively. A permanent change in energy intake of 100 Cal/day would cause the first person to gain or lose 4.5 kilograms in about 2.5 or 1.8 years, while the second person would gain or lose as much as 20 kilograms, even if in about 19 or 14 years, respectively.
