I think you would have to be a professional athlete to do that because normal folks would not be able to exercise intensely enough to burn off all the fat you take in.
I am not an expert her but judging from the many articles I have read on the connections between diet and health, it mainly depends on what sort of fat it is:
If it is mainly saturated fat then the exercise, although no doubt would be very beneficial to your health, could only ever partly compensate for the high fat diet.
If it is mainly polyunsaturated fat then it may not even damage your health with no exercise unless the quality you consume makes you overweight.
And, if it is mainly monounsaturated fat then its hard to say -the jury is still out on this one.
