*** Roles up sleeves ***

Okay, lets put this in another way. To the question you asked:

F-ES Sitecore wrote:
So let's say I do no exercise and eat 5,000 calories of burgers a day, will I gain more weight than if I drank 5,000 calories of booze instead? Where does the 5,000 calories have to come from in order for me to not gain weight? Or will I gain weight regardless because the "calories in vs calories out" theory is not a myth after all?

Heck yes you/re going to gain weight if you consume 5000 calories without burning it off.

However....

The point I was originally trying to make is that one needs to think about how they consume those calories as they are absorbed at different rates. To many people a calorie is a calorie no matter how they are eaten and that is a mistake. If you eat your calories, they have to be digested which slows their rate absorption giving your body time to process them. Calories delivered by fluid are not digested and absorbed very quickly in comparison. This, in turn, causes the body to start storing those calories into fat to clear the bloodstream of all the extra sugars. The effect that you feel is that quick rush of energy followed by a crash. In reality you get hungry and tired even though your body just got done storing a bunch of excess sugar as fat.

We're not talking about nutrition though, we're talking about calories\energy. I notice you didn't answer any of the questions I asked though, predictably preferring staw-man arguments to backing up the actual claims you actually made.

You asked questions that, scientifically speaking, only have one answer. This is seen as confrontational and argumentative. If you want to get into an argument over minutia, there are plenty of others around here willing to give you the time.
