Apparently, a relatively high caloric input  composed only by proteins and
fats does not really makes one to become overweight because the relevant
biochemical triggers are not activated, so it is at worst a waste (Atkins's
or Eades's diets tell you that if you check what you eat you do not really
have to checkl how much you eat).

But I suspect that fats, when they are not ingested together with carbs,
activate self-limiting reactions. Try to eat butter by spoonfuls on an
empty stomach, and you do not go very far. Replace it with bread and
butter, and you end up having not just added the bread, but also eaten a
lot more butter than you would have otherwise.
