I thought it was interesting that cardio raised your RMR even more than weight lifting.

No--I think the methodology seems sound but most of them are the smaller scale studies that suggest more significant research should be done. There seems to be so many of these with no further follow up but I'm guessing the cost of a full fledge research project would be cost-prohibitive for a lot of these.

Wow. Just calculated my RMR with the Mifflin-St. Jeor equation.... yeah right. Says I need to eat 3000 calories a day to MAINTAIN. Huh-huh. And I have some oceanfront property here in AZ that I'd like to sell you.

Yeah, I don't believe ANY formulas for things like that.
