its basically saying, too much sugar causes you to store fat, because it will cause you to get tolerant to insulin and most of the sugar/processed carbs you eat will become fat...

First part is right, as too much of anything by the definition of the phrase implies that it is an amount that will cause a negative impact... as such too much sugar = too many calories in the form of carbs, which if eaten in amounts beyond what you need for fuel and to replenish muscle glycogen, will be shuttled into adipose tissue and be converted into new fatty acids... whereas if you ate too much fat the surplus calories from it would be stored directly as fat from blood triglycerides without need for a conversion process. The end result is the same regarding surplus calories, hypertrophy of your fat cells.

In this case too much would be defined by: more than you burn.

His later point isn't correct for healthy individuals who exercise and lead active lives... and is just a nice way of saying "fatties eat too much and don't exercise and get fatter, nom sayin dawg?", can you dig it?

"Once inside your cells, sugar is used for energy, with any excess amount being converted to fat tissue."

Too bad that "excess" is a completely unrealistic amount lololol

High sugar intake can have effects on dopamine/serotonin surge which can get addictive. That's why it's so hard to beat the sweet tooth = Want to eat more = mood enhancer = more intake of calories.
