You are generalising;

All vegans carry more weight than non vegans
I'm not a vegan fan, but they're generally thinner then the average person. Then again that's a low bar these days. I'd certainly go with there's a lot of skinny-fat vegan's.

Carbs are more fattening than protein and fats
Carbs obviously aren't really any more or less fattening then protein or fats. I would contend though that carbs are much less satiating for an equivalent amount of calories. Using the old n=1 I've found it's easy to have a big meal that's mostly / all carbs and then an hour later feel like I could eat again. When spring rolls around I LCHF it's rare I'd have a big meal that's no or almost no carbs and then feel like eating again in anything like the same time as the carb heavy meal.

You've put some context around your thoughts, as opposed to blanket statements. I have no problem agreeing on carbs especially refined carbs are easier to over eat than protein and fats.

I keep my weight down by eating cereal for breakfast and supper, and having 2 hot meals during the day, whether it's pasta and low fat sauce, or baked potato and veg with chicken, it works for me. I don't follow diets i prefer to eat sensibly all of the time, i also nibble on nuts and fruit which can make a person feel full.

You didn't follow a diet, but you did the same thing every diet has in common - calorie restriction

I don’t know I could comfortably get back down to 73kg, but at around 80-81kg I’d be on 3000+.
I was on close to 4000 when my body weight plateaued around 87-88kg.

I had a laugh at this rant. It's based on the messages presented by nutrition "experts" who appear on Joe Rogans podcast.

It's funny but IMO Joe Rogan has fantastic guests on his Podcast when it comes to Health, Training, Diet and Nutrition. I listen to most of his Podcasts and he also has plenty of people on who he disagrees with on all manner of subjects.

It's like most things presented on platforms like Podcasts/Forums/Blogs etc, in the end do your own research, experiment if safe to do so and then take out of it what you feel works for you.

I agree with you totally mate, but it makes me suspect that we are still in the dark ages re nutrition.

Or, at the very least, that there is not a "one size fits all" solution on the topic.

Nutrition is very much a new science. That's why platforms like YouTube are filled with unqualified con artists.
Joe Rogans show is ok.
