Shifting Away from "Burning Calories"

'BURNING CALORIES/FAT' IS NOT AN ACCURATE PURPOSE OF TRAINING. SHIFT YOUR TRAINING MINDSET ELSE TO BETTER FAT LOSS

Fundamentally fat loss or weight maintenance is a game of energy consumed through food and drink versus the energy expended through living, lifestyle, and activity. 

Training with weights has it's benefits, purpose and plays an integral part of fat loss for health, human function and muscle retention with a strong argument, and reasoning behind why it should be prioritized over cardio style training...

But you won't burn a whole lot more Calories doing it...

Therefore there is a strong argument that weight training to 'burn fat or Calories' is not an efficient approach, as the amount of extra energy you'll expend isn't anything requiring great attention at least ahead of diet and general activity levels. [1] 

If you had to unblock a river, it would make sense to worry about removing the big boulders before the little pebbles right. If we apply this mindset towards fat loss, it's not the say weight training deserves less thought and that it's effects aren't worthwhile or vitally important. It's just to say that diet and general activity deserve more emphasis, and the why behind training for a fat loss goal should be shifted away from 'burning Calories', and focused towards muscle retention, health, and function. With food and general activity being the primary factors of Calorie/energy balance focus and magnitude of impact.
