Get more physical activity rather than cutting more calories. I don't see any reason (save medical emergencies) that an adult should go below 1,200 calories per day.

Make sure you're eating ENOUGH calories. It sounds like you're eating too far below your TDEE, which is preventing loss.

In an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, Dave Asprey claimed he ate 4000kcal per day for 2 years and lost weight(nearly 100 pounds). Is this possible?

It's not the equation is false, just that there are plenty of ways to manipulate the variables (e.g. activity, cold exposure). In short, it is entirely possible due to the fact that the traditional equation is a vast oversimplification.

I get what Gary Taubes is saying about calories in & Out and most of the rest. So in Gary's Model, how does one actually lose fat? Would one have to do a temporary lower calorie diet and then eat normal to maintain metabolism??
