It cannot be simply excreted like excess protein. Eliminating grain products will take you far, but getting those last few bits of flab out requires modest portions too.
In theory sure, but chances are if you are eating as much as you want you won't be able to eat enough fat (the good fats is what I was referencing) to have an excess of calories.
I ate HUGE yesterday...was stuffed and I still only ate 1800 cals.
If you eat this way, it is REALLY hard to eat to the point where your calories are so high that you start storing.
