Does margarine make you fat and how it affect your weight?

Very hight count of calories in margarine puts this product at the top of hight calorific fats and oils. If you are on diet and you are looking for low-calorific fats and oils, margarine seems to be a bad choice. It is easy to find something better among other fats and oils.

It is hard to find product with higher calories count in fats and oils. Similar energy amount have only such products as lard, linseed oil or argan oil.

You should consider that not only calories are important when you are on a diet. If margarine contains nutrition you need than maybe you should add it to your daily menu anyway?
