all due respect to the laws of thermal dynamics here is a great quote from Rob Wolf of the PM that I have personally come to believe from personal experiance

"Whether we are in a caloric deficit or excess the main determinant of body composition is hormonal status. If the case of the paleo eater vs. a high carber, in general the balanced, low glycemic load paleo eater is going to show better hormonal control and consequently better body composition. A caloric excess may be frittered away by uncoupling proteins in the mitochondria. Food is converted to waste heat, however this will only work to a point."
