I disagree with your statement that fats go to fat fast.
Lipase is the key enzyme in digesting fats, and it can't survive in the high acid environment of the stomach. Digestion of fats has to wait until food passes from the stomach into the lower intestine.
Commonly accepted timeframes for the digestion of foods are:
* simple carbs - as little as 20 minutes
* complex carbs - 2 hours
* fat - 5 hours
* protein - 7 hours
Ultimately, if you eat too many calories of anything - carbs, fat or protein, and don't burn it off, then it will get turned to fat.
A pound of fat represents 3500 calories. A single meal that is high in fats may not be healthy, but it is not going to lead to a noticeable or measureable change in the scale then next day.
However, many greasy and fatty foods are also high in salt, and this can lead to water retention. And that water weight definitely can show up on the scale the next day. But let's be clear about this - it is the salt, not the fat that is causing this.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
