this guiy is purposely gaining weight, and then losing it. how do you think his 'before diet' will compare to what he needs to do in his 'obese' diet?

i am guessing how he maintained before and how he will lose will be vastly different, carbohydrates being key. his 'mt dew addicition' and captncrunch eating have to of caused some leptin resistance, but is it reversible? i think itll be interesting to follow.

i alwaysd wonder about those overfeeding studies where certain people cant lose weight, i am of the opinion though theres A LOT MOE to it than leptin problem/brain problem...

It should be obvious that it would be exceedingly difficult to actually store significant fat without any added to the system, meaning that du novo lipogenesis rate likely has a low upper limit. The point is that simply eating "a lot" of fat won't make you obese. Don't drop the context.

cliff I attracted a personal record for downvotes by asserting that the calorie-dense mixture of fat and carbs was the biggest cause of obesity. Fructose, sugar and grains are enablers, but it's the fat that delivers the pounds to the midsection.

Agreed, carbohydrates are the last thing anyone should be worried about!

I wish him well but I hope he doesn't find as so many have that he's become addicted and losing won't be as easy as he hopes. Our bodies are very sophisticated chemical processing plants and he's monkeying with the controls.
