Fiction-carbohydrates do not cause weight gain unless they contribute to excess calorie intake. the same holds true for protein and fat. findings from the national weight control registry show that people who successfully maintain weight loss tend to eat diets that are higher in carbohydrates and lower in fat, in addition to watching their total calorie intake. however, some people who eat a diet that is extremely high in carbohydrates and low in protein and fat get hungry sooner, which may trigger overeating.
