No, I'm not missing the point. Maybe you need a better understanding of insulin:
This series will correct your misunderstanding :)
I don't have a misunderstanding, and not once did I mention the word 'insulin' in my post.

Also there are some glaring technical flaws in that link. The word 'glycogen' doesn't appear, for example.

Good thread OP.

Where do you live? High-end condo or low-end? Are there a lot of health foods stores around you? Do these old men work or are they retired? What work do they Do? Are there a lot of McDonalds etc in your area?

Answer some of these questions first. Before you can blame the individual you need to look into the environment they live in.

If you conclude that these men are obese due to their own doing then as someone said maybe they just don't care anymore. I see these people everyday at work.

due to severe budget cuts by Trump administration, all SGC 1 members no longer have access to gym or dietitian health plan.
All members no longer have access to free cafeteria food.
SGC-1 sport arena has been sold to Trump hotel to pay off debts. All alien artifacts to be auction off to pay off cost of operations, salaries for members.

Carbs and sugar aren't to blame for obesity, excess calories are.
Carbs and sugar are the main culprit though. A lot of calories.

Exactly. An energy balance that supports fat gain. It's not just carbs and sugar. You don't hear people advocating that we stop eating fruits and veggies (primarily carbs) to avoid becoming obese.

It is the lack of fat in our diets that cause the problem in the first place. Once we started reducing fat intake, we replaced it with more and more carbs and hidden sugars. This is where the obesity problem originated. Once we go back to properly balanced diets everything will be fine.

Not that I'm recommending Mens Journal as a good scientific source or anything, but here is an interesting article on the topic: Why Experts Now Think You Should Eat More Fat

"According to a new study from the National Institutes of Health, a diet that reduces carbohydrates in favor of fat – including the saturated fat in meat and butter – improves nearly every health measurement, from reducing our waistlines to keeping our arteries clear, more than the low-fat diets that have been recommended for generations."

It's not so much about exercise (or lack thereof) as their diet. For all you know those men are killing it at the gym only to undo it by mindless eating the rest of the day.Astonished Face

Was that the 'study' that used self reported data? Not exactly a reliable way of studying cause/effect.

Weight gain/loss always comes down to energy balance. There hasn't ever been a single (proper) study that showed otherwise.

Such an impassioned topic, weight-loss that is. Everyone's certainly got their own opinion on it.

Treating weight-loss like a mathematical equation is great on paper, but not so effective in real world scenarios.
