I've got a book in the library (it's on libgen too), "Burn" by Herman Pontzer.

I've read few good reviews of this book, so going to give it a go. The author (a biologist) compares Hadza people (hunter-gatherer lifestyle) with sedentary western societies and explains why they both have same daily calorie expenditure despite completely different life styles.

In short, it's about metabolic adaptation and why doing more exercises doesn't mean more energy burnt.
