Keep in mind that calories & body weight, gain/loss, are based on associations observed/promoted by various individuals. However, only associations, Not Direct Causation. Thus counting calories is inherently not reliably related in any reliable way to weight gain/loss. If animals are more physically active, this activity tends to be associated with ↑ed loss of atoms (mass), but many variables.
