I like to eat a lot. I also like to exercise. I also would like to not gain body fat. What sport or exercise would be good for me to get into?
I have heard that weight lifting requires a lot of calories. Anything else?
Specific and science-based answers encouraged, for example: something specific like, "Swimming for 1 hour a day, for the average-build person, uses roughly x-calories, so you could probably eat y amount more per day without gaining weight, according to Z study."
BTW, I have no concerns about the quality of my diet: I'm a pescetarian, I don't eat fast food or drink soda at all, I eat little packaged food and moderate quantities of desserts once or twice a week. I love whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables. I'm basically just talking about sheer calories here: I love cooking and eating and want to be able to have an enjoyable experience eating a lot of food without gaining weight.
(Anon because I find it pretty dumb and embarrassing that I'm asking this question.)
