Another Scenario is a man who eats call it 15000 calories a week, vs the same man eating 15000 calories while injecting winstrol or some anabolic steroid. CICO fails.
The point is - CICO implies there some level, call it X. above x you gain weight, below you lose weight. The problem with that is - X is a multivariable function with many inputs - calories, types of calories, your age, exercise, type of exercise, BMR, etc....
X is not constant. your macros will change this level. You're trying to apply a level 1 algerbra equation to a Multivariable function. The fact that you cannot understand this, doesn't make it untrue.
The problem with you is not that you believe something that isn't true, the problem is that you are so overconfident and arrogant that you refuse to recognize that you are wrong, and adjust your thesis. You make statements with such authority, and you know nothing. Just because you keep stating something, doesn't it make it correct. And just because you are incapable of understanding something, doesn't mean its wrong.
^ I would love to see those extremes actually. I don't know why we don't see clinical trials of that sort. They always seem to be trials of diets that are quite similar, but have different "tms" so we need trials to prove one over the other. I've seen a couple of trials with zone proportions compared to low carb diets...I mean come on! We're arguing over 20% of macros really! Lets see what happens with with your 70/30/just enough fat soluble vitamins vs. 5/30/65. See we keep the protein the same too.... thats key. Both have to be elimination type diets so it is defacto extreme paleo too. Now if fat/carb macros do play a significant role in body composition and energy expenditure it MUST show up! We probably have to do one trial with 2 meals/ day doing this and another with 6 meals/day too.... just to get a bit of IF'ing info and its effects while we are at it.
I would be willing to do an N=1 experiment and be the 70/30 if anyone wants to do the 5/30/65. Not exactly sure how it could be setup to show anything substantial but it would be interesting.
