Sorry, But Muscle Doesn’t Burn Nearly as Many Calories as You Want It to

Another thing I'm calling bullsh*t on is the oft-repeated claim that a pound of muscle burns 50 calories per day, even at rest. In the past two days I've not only seen two fitness pros (who should know better) parroting this, but I did a quick search and found this figure in articles all over the internet. Truth be told, I've probably been guilty of saying it at some point in the past. Probably even followed that up with a quote about waiting an hour before going for a swim.
