There are good fats and bad fats. The fats you ingest are going to also slow blood flow through capillaries, reduce available blood sugar and oxygen delivery to your cells. Not ideal....There is no point in adding weight in fats that you will have problems with later. It is a myth that this weight will transform into muscle later. IT WONT.

You can increase your caloric intake but do try to keep to a general rule of thumb. 60% carbs/20 protien/20% fats. IF your trying to add weight or lifting weights increase protiens slightly to build with. Keep your fats at or below 20% of your daily caloric intake.

Aerobic conditioning will be what you will want to target for teh short term. You cant make great strides in just a week but it cant hurt. Over indulge in fats and you will tank! dont sabatoge yourself.....
