    Does eating too much fat affect how many cal's to eat?

    This is a pretty basic question, and I'm pretty sure the answer is no. However, I just wanted to check.

    I eat really healthy usually, but I ate a bratwurst, and a piece of fried chicken before dinner today. Now I'm supposed to eat a lot more calories, but I'm far more full than usual. It's obviously because I've eaten about 50% more fat than usual today already, and I'm supposed to keep eating. Should I still eat as many calories as I would of if I had eaten healthy?

    You're full, don't you think you'd be uncomfortable eating even more. This is only one day.

    Im not even going to get into that you think bratwurst and fried chicken is unhealthy vs healthy.

    But to answer the question, fat has the highest calories of the macros so it would affect someone's calories if it takes them over their set calories for the day etc

    Thanks for the reply. I truly mean that. But

    You're not even going to get into whether I think Bratwursts and fried chicken are healthy vs. unhealthy? I could see you saying that it's irrelevant in the context of stimulating hypertrophy or losing fat. Bratwursts and fried chicken are not healthy foods. If you think otherwise then ask a doctor. I guess it's much more important in the context of someone trying to increase the odds of a longer life span though. Especially, if that person is not young anymore, but young people should eat healthy too.

    Also, who cares what's comfortable? If you can't eat then don't lift.

    Again, thanks for the answer.

    I'm definitely going to look at the studies being used to support that article more tomorrow. It's gonna take some time. However, I did notice from a quick (or not so quick, wow) look that the studies supporting red meat both involved LEAN red meat, no one ate that much red meat, and one said that HDL was significantly higher with the people eating fish vs. poultry or red meat. So, I have a feeling that if you were to look at all of those studies, you would find out that it's more complicated than that article makes it seem.

    However, it's hard to argue with the point that everything is fine as long as you don't over do it.

    I mean, what's your goal exactly? To put on weight? Then yeah of course. If you're just trying to "eat healthier" with no goal of weight gain, loss, strength gain, fat loss, etc. Then no, just eat to hunger and make "healthy" decisions.

    If you are trying to gain weight and would rather be hungrier when eating rather than eating despite your lack of appetite, save fats for later in the day and opt for more carbs during the day.

    Carbs have a way of stimulating your appetite in most people, especially compared to protein and fat. The reason I say save fats for later in the evening is because is slows digestion down a good bit. While it's not exactly as filling as other macro nutrients, it indirectly is by delaying digestion of your other filling macronutrients, given that you are currently eating mixed meals with a good bit of fat in them.

    This ^ is good info. I'm on a cut and actually doing the opposite, fairly low carb and hitting the majority of my fat macros in the morning. Majority of carbs at last meal. Protein throughout the day because it's my highest macro to hit.

    Yep. I'm gaining now and leaning heavily on carbs vs fat during the day with protein pretty constant. Wasn't really using that technique for a good majority of the start of my bulk and found myself, not exactly having to force feed, but not enjoying food as much as I'd like during the later part of the day to hit my target. Not only will it help you reach a calorie goal that you're struggling with, I'm pretty sure everyone wants to enjoy eating lol
