"Eating fat doesn't make you fat. Storing fat makes you fat. Carbohydrates play a major role in storing fat. So the level of dietary carbohydrate is really the most important factor to control because it dictates what happens to fat. Carbohydrates are dominant and fat is passive. When carbohydrates are low, fat tends to be burned, and when carbohydrates are high dietary fat tends to be stored."

Wise words form Dr. Jeff Volek.

Let them ruminate in your mind. (And by the way, only ruminants need to eat carbohydrate.)
