I said it already, but eating a high fat diet wont make you fat, eating more calories in a day than you require, no matter what kind they are, will make you gain fat.
I know it's a little off-topic, but there is a difference between eating an equal amount of calories of fat vs. some other composition of calories, main difference being that our bodies don't efficiently break down fat for immediate energy (hence our excellent ability to store energy as fat cells), whereas simple and complex carbs, and even protein, are more-easily broken down for more-immediate energy. Gotta take into account the effect that what someone consumes has on their metabolic rate, and that if something eats 100% fat, it will have a drastic effect on how quickly/efficiently they make use of the calories that they're ingesting. There's a reason why there is an "ideal" composition of carbohydrates, protein, and fats for a healthy diet.

Protein takes more energy to be broken down into energy than fat does, and so it is used last as a source of energy. Carbs first, then fat, finally protien. Our metabolisms are designed so that they can run on fat for fuel, rather than storing it for later use. Eating fat would make your metabolism more adjusted to burn stored fat, making weight loss easier. Please enlighten me as to what my "ideal" diet composition should be. Honestly, it's going to be different for everyone.

My 3 day double-blind trial with L.A Noire this weekend confirms the OP title. And I say it's "double-blind" because neither my friend nor I ever looked away from the screen while reaching for the bags of goodies.

My diet is primarily fat and protein, and I've gotten down to 10% body fat eating this way. Their demise is grains and sugar and processed foods.



Pasta and sauces aren't exactly healthy...



Aside from your seemingly negative comment regarding fat, I agree with you.




Not necessarily, I mean, don't go out and eat a tub of the stuff, but high fat diets can be great for people, and keep you satisfied for quite some time between meals.



I eat very little in the way of carbs, and I'm fine, so please tell me why do I need a good deal of them? Eating carbs tells your body to store fat. So if you eat carbs in excess and eat them with fat, you'll get fat. It wont help anything if you eat excessive amounts of either though.

As for the study, if gamers were eating healthy to begin with they wouldn't need to binge on snacks while they play.
I agree with most of what you're saying. However, if you're eating few enough carbs your body will switch to fat for the primary fuel source. (AKA Keto Diet). If you're dropping bodyfat then yes, fewer carbs will help you lose some wait. Carbs don't tell your body to store fat, that's a common misconception. High amounts of sugar will cause an insulin spike, which temporarily pauses the metabolism of nutrients and causes fat to be stored until the spike is done, then the fat is released from the fat cells.

High carb diets aren't ideal for everyone, but for athletes and people trying to gain muscle, they're great. For a sedentary lifestyle where most your time is spent sitting (I'm guessing that covers a lot of people on this forum due to work/school and some laziness tossed in) a high carb diet isn't needed.

In the end, your body utilizes nutrients the same way, carbs are carbs, fat is fat and protein is protein. Just remember all of them are needed in moderation, but I think you have that down pretty well if you're at 10% bf.

I know, like I said in this post, everything in moderation. You need a balanced diet, but my main point is that your body doesn't care if most of your carbs come from sugar or brown rice. It's not going to be good for your blood sugar levels if you take it all in at once, and I wouldn't advise it but it wont kill you (unless you're a diabetic of course).

I gave an example of one dish and apparently I was recommending everyone eat a high carb diet?

No.

First of all everything is about moderation. So yes pasta is high in carbs, which amazingly are good for you, in moderation. And cheese is high in fats, which amazingly, are good for you, in moderation.

As for the sauces you can buy healthy sauces easily or make your own or not have any. As for meats, if you want a healthy meat just eat chicken. As for veg is very simple.... carrots, mushrooms, peppers, brocolli, potatos etc. You can literally throw what ever you want together and it will work.

Also I don't agree with this "Gamers don't have 40 minutes to make a meal" idea. If you want to live, eat. Making your own meal is not hard at all and there is no reason you can't take 20-40 minutes out of your game time of how ever many hours (lets say 4) to make a something to eat.

Honestly this is going to sound really rude but the people saying I'm wrong are probably just fat idiots who blame their diet on everyone and everything else but themselves. It's fine to eat fast food all your life and have a heart attack at the age of 30, but don't blame your diet on anyone but yourself. It's extremely easy and cheap to eat healthily and it is only laziness that stops people.

Please people, as a whole the human race can do better than this. Videos like this make me wonder about internet censorship, like the fact that I would actually like to see this particular video censored from my internet connection indefinitely.

I am very well aware..

But the point of this study, and it is pretty contextually implicit if you think about it, is not that unsaturated fat acids are healthy for you, or that the increased food intake in teens is a positive thing because of unsaturated levels in generally healthy foods. I mean.. c'mon?

You're just asking me that question as a means to pull the focus away from the real issue at hand, and points for effort but, not really the kind of smart-ass comment that goes hand in hand with the study to which this thread is about.. just saying

Anyways this entire study has way too broad a definition, and to use it as a baseline for the entire "teen" base of people playing video games is just WAY too stereotypical and plain stupid...

And sorry to say this US but.. Trying to put the blame for your increasing obesity issues in younger people on video games as a catalyst, just take a short car ride 10 minutes in any direction and see how many fast food chains you can count.. (classy but not really that farfetched)
