Well, it's more about energy intake in the presence of insulin. There's no such thing as a "calorie" in the body since a "calorie" is a unit of measure for a steam engine and the human body is a chemical engine. Dairy is energy rich and also insulinogenic, so you store more fat when you eat dairy than you would if you ate an equal amount of energy in, say, eggs or lettuce. The reason why Primal works so well is because meat generates less insulin than grain, and you can eat a whole lot more meat before you put on the fat you do when your blood sugar's high. Since oil generates no insulin, I wonder how that works. If you were fasting and just ate oil, would the calories count? If you ate oil with a slice of bread, would the oil count more then since you're making insulin now? I wonder.
