Are superfluous carbohydrates converted into fat in the body?

Answer:

Whether surplus carbohydrates can be converted into fat is a controversial issue. The current belief is that it can. Whether this is the case or not, it is best to be restrictive with carbohydrates if you wish to reduce weight. The body uses carbohydrates first and then there is no need to get energy from the fat layers. Carbohydrates also make you hungry, thus inducing you to eat too much.
