Eating fat makes you fat.

Fact

There is only one thing that makes a person fat, and that is eating more calories than their body requires. That's it. Nothing else causes weight gain other than eating too many total calories. So, for example, if your body requires 2500 calories per day to maintain your weight, you will gain weight if you eat more than 2500 calories per day on a regular basis. It doesn't matter if those calories come from fat, protein or carbs. Eating too much of anything will cause fat gain.
