How I gained fat without eating carbs

Carbs make us fat. This is a true statement, but not a complete one.

Over-consumption of fuel makes us fat. Carbs are the most abundant and easily available fuel available. So they are a leading cause of obesity.

Guess what else is fuel.....fat. It's possible to gain body fat by over-consuming fat.

That's what I did this week. 🤯

My carb intake was less than 5g per day yet I gained about 2 pounds of fat this week. You'll see why when you look at my macros.

Remember, fuel is either used or stored. Calories don't matter, "Fuel calories" matter a lot.

Last week I averaged 2578 cals per day and I lost some body fat. This week I averaged 2515 cals per day and I gained fat... How does that happen?

2 things changed.

  1. I lowered my protein intake so my overall calorie intake went down.
  2. I increased my fat intake to find how much I could have before I gained body fat.

I'm going to say it again for the folks in the back.

TOTAL CALORIES IN TOTAL CALORIES OUT DOESN'T MEAN 💩
