    Soda is a concentrated source of calories for sure, but it is difficult for the body to convert carbohydrate into fat. In addition, the more carbohydrate you eat, the more your metabolism picks up. True, the rise in metabolism is never as high as the calories consumed, but fat contributes none. Overconsuming fat doesn't speed your metabolism up any faster.

    If you sit on your ass and pound soda all day, as long as you're not consuming it alongside a fat source, it isn't going to be efficiently fattening. When you consume it alongside a greasy cheeseburger and fries, NOW you have a recipe for massive fat gain because your adipose tissue will suck up all that dietary fat and you won't burn any because you'll be burning the sugars from the soda preferrentially.

    Eating a diet high in protein and carbohydrate but with no fat isn't an efficiently fattening diet until you throw dietary fat in the mix. It happens to be that fattening foods are high in fat AND carbs - french fries, brownies, cake, cookies, doughnuts and chicken alfredo pasta all contain as much fat as they do carbs, so you burn the carbs and store the fat. It would be very difficult to get fat eating a diet of soda and pixie stix in the absence of all dietary fat. The average male has to consume something like 700g of carbohydrate a day before de novo lipogenesis (conversion of carbs to fat) is significant in the absence of dietary fat.

    But how likely is it you'll consume 20 cans of Coke a day and zero fat?

    Agree. You would probably die before getting fat.

    That's entirely possible.

    Man who drank three litres of coke died a day after drink made his lungs swell to four times the normal weight | Mail Online

    Woman Drank Herself to Death with Coca-Cola : Discovery News

    It's happened before.

    This isn't an endorsement from me to drink Coke. I'm simply stating it isn't an effectively fattening thing unless you throw dietary fat into the mix. There are plenty of extremely unhealthy people out there that aren't very overweight.

    The solution is to cook with another fat and add olive oil before serving. The taste is also better IMO

    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.

    If the taste is better for you, that's cool. But these two links:
    Smoke point - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Cooking Oil Smoke Points

    show that evoo has a very easy smoke point. Once you get away from industrial oils, you're going to have smoke points mostly around 320-380 degrees F. EVOO is at 375.

    I'm not sure where the myth that olive oil has too low of a smoke point for cooking got started, but I'm guessing it's from comparing it the big plastic bottles of industrial oils found in most grocery stores.

    Smoke point isn't what determines when an oil oxidizes or loses flavor. It determines when it...smokes.

    Refined soybean oil's smoke point is far higher than virgin coconut oil's smoke point. I assure you, virgin coconut oil is more stable.

    Discussing carbohydrates as equicaloric is pointless. Gucose Metabolism is not the same as Fructose Metabolism, starting with the receptor. Fructose goes straight to fat unless you have just run a marathon. Sucrose is 1/2 Fructose, we are eating POUNDS and POUNDS more than we used to. Soda is full of corn Fructose, Pixie stix are not, pasta is not, etc.

    Consumption of high-fructose corn syrup in beverages may play a role in the epidemic of obesity

    I really do that for the taste, apart from health issues. Same with butter, far more tasty when not cooked.
