In brief: Calories & arteries
Fat has twice the calories compared to the same weight of sugars.
Some fats (saturated) can lead to lipid (fat) deposits after a single meal! always best to focus on veggies and protein.

Body prefers a 3:1 balance of omega-3 to omega-6 fats (brain is largely omega-3's); American diet is largely omega-6 fats, which are associated with inflammation & fat deposition in arteries. Omega-3's in oily fish, flax seeds, savi seeds, fish oil supplements).
