    Hi, there!I need to know how to say: ´´fijar las grasas´´ in English. By this I mean when you eat unhealthily and do not work out. Also when you eat or drink sth something that produces this effect (such as alcoholic drinks). I thought it was ´´to fix fat´´ but this does not sound English at all, does it?

    No, I'm afraid that it doesn't, and especially not in the plural: to fix fats. :D

    I would say:

    to put on fat
    to get fat
    to put on weight
    to gain weight

    The last two are more polite.

    I think this is more along the lines of "watching/paying attention to (one's) fat intake" rather than "fixing fat".

    Right. I think that Fobits´answer is the most appropriate one. It is exactly what I wanted to say.
