Sorry Shaun, you are mistaken.
Oxidation, or burning, of fat calories is even more significant to weight gain than caloric intake. When the body receives only occasional meals high in fat calories, it stores those fat calories immediately. The body only begins to oxidize fat calories aggressively when it receives a steady, rich supply of those calories: according to Dr. Blundell, it takes three to seven days of high-fat eating to increase fat oxidation.
