Eating too many carbs show up as fat in the stomach and eating too much fat shows up on my thighs. True or false?

False. Someone must have made that up by contorting science to package and sell something. When you eat too many total calories of ANY kind, the excess is stored wherever your body puts it based on your genetic predisposition. Women tend to store fat below the waist while males tend to store it in the gut area; but again, everyone is slightly different and there is no such thing as spot reducing or spot storing.
