I'd be curious what his theory is. The liver does decide whether to store
food energy as glycogen (which tends to get used) or fat (which tends to hang
around). A big enough meal will overwhelm the liver's ability to store
glycogen and the rest goes straight to fat. There's also a theory, with
conflicting studies, that evening calories are more prone to end up as fat
than morning calories.
