I can understand gaining weight through eating too much fat. You store the fat you don;t use, right, and store it round your waist and in your arteries. But how about if you don;t eat that much fat, say it's too much carbohydrate (inc sugers)? does your body convert that to fat? I assume it does as beer or wine has no fat, and yet you can still put on weight if you drink too much, right?
So, does it mean if you eat too much, say, dried fruit, you can gain weight because of the high levels of suger?
I find it all rather confusing.
