That's a myth that consuming fat makes you fat. In fact consuming more fat helps to mobilize fat which is the reason why low fat diets cause people to gain obscure fat (ab fat, cellulite). In fact if you cut carbs completely and eat absurd high amounts of fat you become ketogenic and rely on fat as a primary source of fuel

Stress is actually the number 1 contributor to fat. Fight of flight response system cause the body to retain fat. If you're always stressed you're body continues to build fat and pack it on
