I highly recommend that you check out the guy's work. At least if you're not going to check him out, other open-minded people reading this thread will.The insulin hypothesis has definitively not been debunked. Here’s a recent study illustrating the importance of insulin in the ratio of fat to lean mass loss in a caloric deficit.
Stimulated Insulin Secretion Predicts Changes in Body Composition Following Weight Loss in Adults with High BMI
Did you know that elevated insulin isn't just caused by carbs. Take an aspirin for example and watch your blood glucose and insulin drop from a meal. Two people can eat the same food and have completely different effects. One guy can have a small spike and another guy a big spike. So it's not a good idea to say avoid insulinogenic carbs.
The study you posted didn't show that high GI carbs resulted in less fat loss than low GI. It basically said that those who were insulin resistant or at least had elevated insulin lost the least fat. That says nothing about carbs.
