Though most doctors now take CFS more seriously than in the past (even CDC now recognizes it as a valid diagnosis), there is not any evidence or consensus for a link to fat in the diet. It is probably a bad idea to spread that rumor, as it may encourage someone to increase their fat intake and risk heart disease. It's probably not as bad, though, as recommending latest snake oil peddled by the local drug pusher (i.e. "health food store"). A good place for up-to-date, understandable and responsible medical advice is <>.
