People often ask if eating a certain food, food group or nutrient will make them fat.
Common examples include...
👉 Carbs, sugar, fruit, fat, fructose, gluten, wheat, dairy, unhealthy food, "dirty" food, processed food, fast food, junk food, food that isn't organic, food that cavemen didn't eat, and on and on and on.
Well, regardless of which one of these (or whatever else) you might be asking about, there is only ONE answer and it's ALWAYS the same.▪️
Ready? Here it comes... 👉 🔥 The only thing that will EVER make you fat is the consistent consumption of more calories than your body burns. This is called a caloric surplus, and it is the sole cause of fat gain.🔥
It doesn't matter which foods, food groups or nutrients are providing these surplus calories. Nor does it matter if they are "good" or "bad," "healthy" or "unhealthy," "clean" or "dirty" or whatever other stupid labels you choose to put on your food.▪️
👊What matters in this context is the calories they provide in conjunction with ALL of the other calories contained in ALL of the other things you eat and drink each day.
When that *TOTAL* amount of calories consistently constitutes (say that 5 times fast) being in a surplus, you gain body fat. When it doesn't... you don't.▪️
So, will eating [insert anything here] make you fat?-
👍YES, if it leads to a consistent caloric surplus.-
👎NO, if it doesn't.
