While carbs are the easiest to turn into fat reserves the body will also convert fat and protein to fat reserves if you are taking in more calories than you are expending. Spacing your carbs throughout the day will help ensure that your body converts the carbs to glycogen to be stored in your muscles and used as energy rather rather than filling your glycogen stores and then converting the rest to fat stores.
