Whn trying to gain mass to what degree does fat play a role in putting on the lbs? Browsing online I see so many websites that say to eat clean and in turn substitute for reduced fat options. Well over the past year or two I usually consume around 40g (to a point of 800 calories)of fat in the mornings, most coming from coconut milk and avocados. I havent been doing this for a while, just to save a bit of cash, in the meantime ive noticed no change in weight from the drop in calories. I originally started doing this to give me a headstart in calories at the start of the day to prevent a deficit since it can sometimes be a taunting task to get over 3000 calories a day as a vegetarian without breaking the bank or being chained tot he kitchen. This leads me to wonder if the fat in vegetables and fruit is stored in the body or if its readily converted into energy.
