What research is there on overfeeding in ketogenic diets?

Does anyone know of any scientific literature demonstrating whether fat storage decreases or has no change when someone is on a very low carb ketogenic diet as compared to a standard diet and is overfeeding on fat and/or protein?

Absolutely you can gain weight while keto. Go to the Atkins board and see tons of it - The complaints from folks who eat 3 lbs of sausage a day with their daily box of "low carb" cookies. Many complaints that they gain weight on 4,000 cals a day. Who'da thunk?!?!

I'm not aware of any studies, but it's pretty hard to overeat when you are strictly limiting carbs and protein. Oil or cream guzzling is one of the few ways you'd be able to do it...

=Touche. It was an ignorant claim. I don't know of any besides one anectodotal claim by Dr. Bernstein in regards to a patient with type 1 diabetes trying to gain weightt guzzling olive oil but to no avail.

Please don't make ignorant assumptions. The truth is I am trying to use scientific evidence to disprove claims of being unable to gain weight on a ketogenic diet, the problem is I can't find any such evidence. Theoretically it is clearly possible to gain weight on a ketogenic diet but an experiment would be more convincing.

You're simply trying to confirm your bias. I don't, but what if I said I knew of one that said overfeed on a ketogenic diet resulted in increased fat storage? YOu wouldn't want to hear about that one?
