Our expert says:
Any calories that you don't use, will make you fat, whether it is starch, fat or protein. However starches usually contain fat and sugar that can cause weight gain. The weight gain will be over the whole body but tends to be more in the stomach area in some people ( men and post menopausal women), and more on the hips in others (usually females).
