Will eating fat make me overweight?

As with the myth that carbohydrates make you fat, the answer is the same. Calories ingested and absorbed above expenditure contribute to increasing fat stores. However, there is some evidence that would suggest it is easier to get fat when consuming a high-fat diet. It seems the human body has a difficult time regulating food intake on high-fat diets, making it is easier to accidentally eat excess calories. Also, because fat provides a lot of calories for a small volume (nine calories/g vs. four calories/g for protein and carbs) you may have a harder time feeling satisfied with the smaller food volume a high-fat diet would provide.
