The main effect, of course, being that fat contains far more energy than any other type of food, and so provides more calories than one may burn effectively.
My question is, are there any other effects beyond this? I ask because it’s occured to me lately that perhaps my diet and exercise regimen aren’t making up for all the fast food I eat. And that’s a lot of grease, of course, but I’ve always rationalised that since I exercise so much, and apparntly burn it all off as fast as I take it in, I’m not suffering any ill effects.
So, could I be? What other effects, if any, does consuming too much fat have on the body? Any answers or ideas would be appreciated; don’t be afraid to get specific, as I like to believe I have a fairly good grasp of physiology.
