A negligible amount Matt and if you're in ketosis, that's not even a concern. If you're in glycolysis it's not much concern either.

yeah, sadly this isn't correct. glucose is absolutely used in your body as a structural nutrient, but that's not even the point. fats and proteins and anything else will make you fat if you consume too much of it. we store extra energy as fat. you eat more than you need to rebuild or fuel, and you store it as fat. which is good, that's the design. but stop with the 'fat won't make you fat' BS.

Alvaro, what do you mean by 'enter carbohydrates'

Consumed fat does indeed end up in adipose.

If you are fat, is because you consume an excess of easily absorbable calories, enter carbohydrates. If you are interested in the Primal/Paleo lifestyle, you should read about the chemistry of the digestive system and how nutrients are metabolized and stored in the body. Sorry I don't have a link, but I will look for one for you.

PROTEIN = Structural Nutrient

Amino Acids = Structural Nutrients

Fat/Oil = Structural Nutrient

Fatty Acids = Structural Nutrient

Carbohydrate = Exogenous Energy Nutrient

Glycogen = Endogenous Energy Nutrient

Ketone = Endogenous Energy Nutrient

Cholesterol = Structural Nutrient

Alcohol = Potential Exogenous Energy Nutrient (partial conversion of alcohol to Ketones)

*The reason fats and fatty acids (same thing essentially) don't make you fat is the same reason that protein doesn't make you fat.

Because your body uses it for structure and to rebuild your mucosa, soft tissue and cell walls. Your body doesn't use fat for adipose (body) fat.*

you are taking in too many calories. cut down and see if you lose weight. it's not like you can eat a limitless amount of food with no consequences.

"fat does not make you fat" is only if you follow a high fat diet that does not excede your daily calorie expenditures

As science understands it today: excess energy (in the form of protein , carbs or fat) is necessary for weight (fat) gain. Fat in itself doesn't cause obesity, but dietary fats end up in your fatty tissue, if surplus energy is available. In extreme cases dietary carbohydrates can be turned into body fat (under normal circumstances, on a mixed diet, this does happen on a fairly small scale like less than 10 g/day). The amount of fat needed to replace other structures in the body is negligibly compared to the amount used at energy and/or storage. Insulin is also needed to gain weight but even a low carb diet will elicit enough insulin to facilitate weight gain, if surplus energy is consumed. In the real world however, some people experience dramatic weight loss on a low carb diet, even though they don't limit energy in a conscious way. This can also happen on high carb diets, that are restricted in other ways (like potato diet etc).

Fat doesn't make you fat. Insulin makes you fat.

Fat will make you fat if you consume it in excess along with excessive carbohydrates. When you eat a high real natural fat, moderate protein based upon your lean body mass and low carb (<50 net carbs a day), you should have no problem losing weight. Fat is used in the body first and foremost for structure, to make hormones, burned directly as fuel and if consumed in excess it converts to glucose and is either burned (if you are not eating alot of carbs) or its stored directly as body fat in the form of a triglyceride. When following this type of eating plan calories in do not equal calories out.
