Jenn and others, I'm seriously happy to answer your thoughtful questions and problems with the AH. But I still would first like an answer to the question I raised (ranted ) last night:
If CICO is the answer, fine. Then just tell me -- because you believe insulin has zero importance with respect to how fat gets stored in fat cells -- HOW does it happen? What's the biochemistry? How do calories become fat?
I would like an answer to the effect of "the biochemistry by which fatty acids become TGs in the adipose tissue is XYZ" wherein XYZ has to do with ACTUAL biochemistry (and not insulin in any way) and not just "it happens."

explain away this picture, which shows pendulous subcutaneous fat deposits caused (per the NEJM authors) by "insulin lipohypertrophy."
Would that person have prevented/lost those pendulous fat masses disappeared had he/she gone a few extra miles on the treadmill??
There's a metaphorical picture of the earth from space. I'm fascinated by how you're going to retain unstinting faith that the earth is still flat.
Fat storage is not bad, m'kay? You're fixated on the wrong arguments.
I'm just saying -- divorced from the rest of the mishegas we're all discussing -- how does it happen? What's the biochemistry? b/c at the end of the day, if we want to fix our broken adipocytes and help others deal with theirs, we need to first understand the biochemistry. It's not magic. So what's the biochem?
It's too deep for you to understand. I could tell you, but then I'd have people in suits knocking on my door ready to take me in. As it is I'm already hiding behind 6 proxies, and they're still watching.
Time is passing so quickly. Right now, I feel like complaining to Einstein. Whether time is slow or fast depends on perception. Relativity theory is so romantic. And so sad.
