    Eating carbs does not cause you to gain fat – eating excess calories does. You can gain fat from eating any macronutrient if it is putting you over your caloric expenditure. Your body burns calories just keeping you alive. Even if you were to lay in bed all day you would still burn calories. This is called your basal metabolic rate. So to tell people that if they are sitting around and they eat carbs it will all turn to fat is so scientifically incorrect. You don't have to "work" to burn off everything you eat. In fact most people gain weight slowly by eating only a small amount more than they burn off and it adds up over time, but the majority of the calories we take in are utilized for energy. I will say however that at rest fat IS a better source of fuel as it is more of a "slow burn" type of fuel. Carbs can be converted to energy quicker and are a more efficient fuel source when you are at the gym training, but that still doesn't mean that if you are sitting on the couch watching tv and you have a few cookies or an apple it's going to turn into bodyfat.
