I guess i need to be more specific, in that when i'm talking about weight loss, it is in reference to FAT loss. I guess you can pat eachother on the back after advising someone who'd like to lose weight, to have a limb amputated, a lobotomy, or a breast reduction
Your body does not store fat based on a surplus of calories, so it is silly to assume that causing a deficiency in caloric intake will result in FAT loss. Fat storage is regulated by hormones (insulin), via the pancreas secreting insulin as a feedback response to the liver flooding the body with glucagon.
I understand that you were instructed to think otherwise, but (wether or not this was intentional misinformation) it is misinformation. Obese people (in general) suffer from insulin sensitivity, where the feedback system breaks down from consuming complex carbs/sugars over time, and the body turns to storing more and more fat. To reverse this breakdown of our human bodys system, the solution is to disregard how many calories one takes in, and rather focus on something tangible that actually effects fat storage, and that is carbohydrates/sugar
Glucagon comes from the Pancreas, not the Liver.
