Question: If it’s easier to store fat than to convert carbs to fat, why is it easier to lose weight on low-carb?

It's easier to store dietary fat as fat than it is to store dietary carbs. Why is it easier to lose weight on the keto diet than a higher carb diet assuming isocaloric? Well, I think there's an assumption that's not necessarily true there, but the ease with which you store something as fat is not really related to weight loss. So I think that's part of why that is true, or part of why there seems to be a conflict there. So the implication of the fact that it is easier to store dietary fat as fat than it is to store carbs as fat is that when you eat too many calories from carbs, you will have a lot more fat that is stored as fat because the carbs displaced their use for energy.

This Q&A can also be found as part of a much longer episode, here.
