While reviewing an older personal trainer certification book, I was flipping through the bioenergetics section and came upon a chart which showed the affects of exess consumptions of macronutrients. It showed protein, fat, and carbohydrate as all being stored as fat if eating in "excess." This lies contrary to PB, Paleo, etc... Would love to get some opinions on this. I do understand that protein can convert into glucose, which if unused can become fat. However, why would this conversion happen if it wasn't necessary? Also, the book did not mention at which instance, protein, fat, and carb were considered to be excessive. I have read the several calorie articles on this website searching for the answer and am still unclear on the issue.
