Doesnt eating fat mean Ill get fatter

That's the current party line but, again, it's not even remotely true. The high fat/high protein/low carb diet will actually make you thinner. It increases fat breakdown and decreases fat buildup. While in the fat burning mode, you use your own bodyfat for energy.

Insulin is the real culprit here, and it's insulin that plays such a large role in the high carb diet. After a high carb meal, glucose floods the bloodstream. The pancreas releases insulin, and plenty of it, to process the glucose. As much of the extra glucose as possible is stored as muscle and liver glycogen to be converted back to glucose when the body needs it for energy. What can't be stored or used in the liver and muscle is converted to triglyceride or bodyfat. If you're eating a lot of carbs, you're going to have a lot of that glucose being stored on your body.

If you're looking for something to blame those bulges and rolls on, you might be wiser to look at your carb intake than putting the responsibility on society's whipping boy, fat.
