Hell I can eat a whole 2000 calorie pizza and be hungry 3hrs later. One explanation is that the body shaves off 20% FIRST and sends that right to fat (triggered by insulin in the white dough). You don't get a say in the matter. So you have 80% of the calories left to use, but almost no nutrients in any of them. Anyhow after the sugar crash you feel like dog poop and want to eat more for more cheap energy...also you want to eat more because you never got your nutrients and your body is confused how it got full yet is still starving, and so on and so forth.
Thus "calories in / calories out" isn't very useful in explaining the "pizza/cake endless chow-down" scenario.
It isn't very useful in explaining a lot of scenarios.
This thread is embarrassing.
Plus he has some cool slides, in this one if you invert the change in the American diet since the 1960s, it becomes primal. Again proving my theory "do exactly opposite of what the Americans are doing".
This cool CICO acronym you guys are using only shows outcome, not WHY. The lazy brains are assuming "move more eat less" forces CICO to decrease fat. But it doesn't. As we've seen with all the crazed Americans running themselves senseless, half-starving, and not getting anywhere. There are other causes at work here.
Hence why I said in post #1 it would be nice if people stopped saying CICO trying to act smart.
Because it isn't smart.

Sorry for my catch-up posts, I'm in a different time zone than most of you. But I'm proud to say I made it thru all 25pgs. It was painful but there were actually a few moments of intelligent discussion.
I'd like to point out to the CICO fanatics who keep saying "if you starve yourself you will lose weight", that you are kinda wrong. There was that one study with some obese rats (poor guys always get screwed) who they starved, and the rats died FAT! Link anyone? There are 6mo old babies now who are obese! Are you going to say the starving rat is still eating too much? Are you going to say the obese baby needs to work out more?
Friday night, peace out.
