I will let Casey Butt speak:

So its basically saying you're going to start to go down hill after about 2 weeks of eating on a surplus?


What about immobility? Thats what I'm confused about.

He said 2 weeks before the body switches to a fat gain state, but how does activity level effect that?


Take me who's been sitting in the house for the last 2 days, ill, and then take someone who worked out for one of those days, and was out walking the following, just being generally active,




Wouldn't I have put on extra fat that he didn't have to because he was burning it as energy? Or is 2 days still not enough time, even if fairly sedentary, for the body to switch to fat gain mode.
