    I really don't know where he learned what, but I think it's safe to say he did not come to accept that calories matter from Paleobird.

    CICO doesn't attempt to explain intricacies. All CICO says is that if you overeat, you'll gain weight and if you undereat, you'll lose weight.

    That's it. It's perfect.

    Anything assumed further than that is brought on back lack of reading comprehension by the individual. People struggle with body composition because they eat poor quality foods and exercise completely incorrectly, and it lends to a flabby, weak physique instead of a strong, lean physique. Having a complete lack of understanding regarding the physiological response that humans have to different types of foods and exercises, then blaming "CICO" for that is ridiculous. That's like blaming getting into a car accident on the current phase of the moon. I guess you COULD do that if you wanted to, but you'd look insane. Somehow, "insane" has become the norm with the diet and exercise movement.

    It's perfect math that isn't relevant to the question of Why there's so much obesity. What you said in the second paragraph is too generalized, isn't specific enough, that it begs questions: What is proper exercise? I've been asking and experimenting with that question (and reading a lot) for dang near 40 years. It depends upon one's goals. What are the optimal macros of carbs, protein, and fats? The answer coming from the so called experts with nutritional degrees and MD behind their name is all over the map...from Atkins, to Ornish, to Paleo, to the Zone.
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    Or if your over-respire....or under-respire....or....

    I think a big variable, as noted by some other posters, is that the CO part of the equation is really hard to get a handle on because it is more than just amount of exercise. There is a lot of hormonal interactions that regulate metabolism and vary depending on what is in the diet and what the physical demands on the body are.

    It is absolutely perfect math. We as a society eat too many calories and don't move around enough.

    What are our dietary staples: grain flour deep fried in seed oil and coated in sugar. Most processed foods can be explained by that simple recipe. The foods are extremely calorie dense, they contain very little nutrition and a lot of irritating lectins that tend to suppress thyroid function, then after eating are massive vitamin-free calorie bolus, we sit on our ass at a desk all day and never get any sun. That's the perfect recipe for the obesity epidemic - we're overweight and nutritionally starving at the same time.

    Seems pretty obvious to me.

    Forget about macro ratios. Eat meat, eggs, fruits and tubers. Skip the seeds and weeds. Since last Sunday, I've eaten 4 16+oz NY strip steaks, 2 dozen eggs, a half gallon of whole milk, 4 quarts of organic yogurt, a 5 lb bag of sweet potatoes, a 5 lb bag of white potatoes, 2 plantains and half a dozen apples, not to mention two bags of carrots, 6 cucumbers, 2 heads of romaine and an 11oz brick of goat cheese. I have 7 lbs of london broil in the crock pot as we speak. I'm going to go home and make baked enchiladas in nixtamalized organic corn tortillas. I weigh 145 lbs. Excuse me, I'm off to benchpress.

    Different foods, exercises and metabolic conditions influence your "calories out." If you want to lose weight most effectively, you should be trying to maximize the hormones that generate the best state for body composition. This is healthy thyroid function, high testosterone, low estrogen and youthful labs for pregnenolone and DHEA, since they are the precursors for all your hormones.

    The best way to do those things: high protein intake, adequate fats AND carbohydrates from quality sources (saturated animal/coconut/dairy fats preferred, fruits and potatoes preferred for carbs) and low levels of toxic or irritating foods (you know what they are). Reduce "added calories" from added fats/oils, added refined sugars, drinking calories, alcohol, etc. Yada, yada.

    Oh yea, and lift heavy weights and sprint 1-2 times a week. Simple.
    Ah well, if that's what you truly believe then I really have no issue with you or your opinions on the matter. It would appear that I may have misjudged you. I'm not too proud to admit that I was wrong, and sorry to the rest of the community that I wasted your time with 15 pages of unnecessary content.
