I think this is an excellent point, and I think one of the things that people are missing is just how HARD it is for your average chubby guy who's overweight and into video games and porn to lose weight and start banging girls. Think about what's involved:

1.) Breaking multiple addictions. Guy's probably addicted to sweet and fatty foods, and porn, and probably video games too. That's three addictions, all of which need to be dealt with. Conquering ONE addiction is difficult: look at how many people struggle and fail to quit smoking their whole lives. He's gotta deal with THREE.
2.) Real, actual pain. Lifting weights HURTS. You're sometimes sore for days after you do it, even if you do it right, and injuries can be awful. Dieting is hard. Hunger pangs will keep you up at night, particularly if you're intermittent fasting. I remember when I was dieting I would sometimes lick salt just to have something to fill my stomach with. Not fun.
3.) Repeated rejection. Remember, the body treats rejection like physical pain. The same brain chemstry takes place when you're turned down by a girl as when you're hit by a brick. When they say rejection feels "Like a punch in the gut", to the brain it literally does. And getting past all those initial "NOs", particularly if you're starting off socially awkward, is gonna take a lot of gut punches.
4.) Abandoning your social circle and friends. If you're getting in shape, hitting the gym, and starting to go out with chicks, your friends aren't going to like that because you're making them look bad. You're going to drift apart from them, either for that reason or simply a lack of shared interests.

Now, these are easy sacrifices to make when the result is this:

Or even hedonistic one night stands with this:

But if all that waits for you at the end of the rainbow is this:

Is it any wonder that barely anybody wants to do it?

I respect all your points, but item 3 in a bit untenable in my mind. Any man who is decent with women has faced rejection. The higher your standard the more likely you will get rejected. Rejection is part of the game. In my estimation the men you speak of haven't tried. Getting rejected or stood up by 2-3 girls is child's play. They need to grow a pair and stop refusing to adapt to the market place. That is, if they give a shit
