Is calories the only reason why people get fat?

Does calories the only reason why people get fat?

To make a long story short yes. Calories are defined as the energy required to heat a mL of water one degree celsius. Your body can take calories from fat, protein or from carbohydrates. If you take in more calories then your body needs it will store it away for use later, in the form of fat. A great way to avoid getting fat is to increase your caloric intake such as exercising.

Well calories sort of explain weight gain. It's what the calories are made up of that usually do the trick. However, in theory, if one ate only extremely low fat, low carb, healthy food but ate too many calories of those foods, they could still gain weight!

Too much food, too little exercise.

Personally, I can put on weight just walking past an Asian takeaway. I INHALE the calories.

Love the "takeaway", much better term than Fast Food, especially since most "Fast" food not so Fast at all... At least the few times I've tried it..
Must admit being used to "Street Foods" growing up which much more just Home Cooked good food.. Not a big frequenter of American Fast Foods.. They're really pretty horrible!:-(.
So is most Asian "Takeaway" here and Mainland, very NOT true Asian..
Disappointing as I also Love good Asian food!! And No1, Indonesian!!yum-yum!
Getting very hungry thinking about all that nice food.. Was looking for on of your 'Bed-Time' stories.. Got a quick one? If not, will just think of good food, thank you! Good night Dodgy.
