At my Advanced Mediterranean Diet website a few years ago I asked visitors to answer a poll question. 2,367 responded thusly:
What single food category makes you gain the most fat weight?
Fatty foods like bacon, butter, oils, nuts:
Protein-rich foods: meat, eggs, fish:
Sugary sweet items:
Starches: bread, potatoes, peas, corn:
Pastries, cake, pie, cookies:
Total Votes: 2367
Yes, I know it’s not a scientific poll, but it’s something. I’m not surprised at the results. I’m wishing I’d offered nuts as a choice since there are at least a few folks who gain weight on nuts, perhaps not realizing that nut calories are mostly from fat.

Overeating any type of food causes weight gain.
Even iceberg lettuce?

No normal human eats only lettuce 24/7?
