Very simply, the body will not accumulate fat unless it has insulin in the bloodstream. When the body releases insulin into the bloodstream it puts all available resources (calories) into creating bodyfat. It doesn't matter if those calories come from protien, fat or carbohydrate.
When the body does not release insulin into the bloodstream it uses calories for energy, rebuilding muscle and to refill glycogen stores. The body does not save calories to fat unless there is insulin present.
Carbs create fat because they promote an insulin response.. Protein and fat do not create fat unless there is an insulin response.
Most of the rest about diet is manure and gunsmoke.
Look into recent (within the last 2 years) studies that specifically look at the effects of sugar on the diet and on the body. It is a poison in excess and damages the body. That is why the body uses insulin to remove it from the bloodstream as quickly as it can.
You can argue all day and hang on to the BS that the food industry brainwashed us with about carbs (sugar) being the most important thing to eat but there is no such thing as an essential carb.
Stick with proteins, fats, green vegetables and whole fruits (sparingly). Stay away from Beer, sweet wines, fruit juices, sugar, starches and yes, even grains. You will lose weight.

Wouldn't it be simpler to have just written about the differences between aerobic and anaerobic exercise? And the various results from them?
The sort of running regimen (like marathon training) when repeated regularly, can condition the body's metabolism, and it adapts.
As another member pointed out, increasing lean mass will have the effect of burning more fat, just to provide energy to keep the meat alive.
...running, jogging....is not designed for lean mass increase

That's pretty awesome. Thanks for sharing.
But I'd like for you to focus more on the types of foods you cut out, rather then the amounts. You'll see that the common thread with your success story and others is the removal of processed carbohydrates from the diet.
