you have a lot of room to add more unsat fats. Why not go up to as high as 25 % of good fat. It is very low right now.

Your protein is too high. I'd cut it down to about 225-250 (250 being extreme high). I agree with doc, I'd increase the percentage of mono and poly-unsaturated fats. What?? I don't see any TUNA!! tuttut

i also agree w/ spidey, too much protein

I don't think you have calculated your carbs correctly. Looking at the food in each meal, your calculations look low.

For instance, 1 serving of oatmeal in water that I put in a little 8oz foam cup has 26g carbs.

I have one can of tuna in there in meal 5. :)

What kind of things are good for unsaturated fats? Vegetable oil?

Can I get some help on meal 6? I eat it around 9.30 PM everynight. Thanks.

Yeah, on Meal 6 eliminate the milk and use water instead. Also a good source of Unsaturated fats is Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Flax Seed Oil, Fish....
Does that help any?

Ya , that helps. But where do you guys/girls find flaxseed oil? I haven't seen it at any local grocery stores.

just get yourself a hunk o salmon, no need for flax then!;)

Why would he want unsat. fats?

05-16-2001, 05:46 AM
He sure as hell wouldn't want SATURATED fats, the body does not require them at all for any physiological processes. Essentially humans don't need saturated fats in their diets and can live without them. Unsaturated fats are required in the body for many processes, so he would want those.
You can find Flax at Health Food Stores. This does NOT mean to go to GNC, b/c they don't carry it. I'd look around online at some shops, or find a healthfood store in your area. Hope this helps some. :cool:

1cup oatmeal = 54g carb.
1cup milk = 12g carb
66g carb all togather..

I think u should count ur carb again.

I eat Instant Quaker Oatmeal. Each package itself contains around 27 - 33g of carbs depending on the flavor. Plus 13 grams of carbs from a serving of skim milk. That what I get my calculations from.

I looked at the packaging. Each package is only 1/2 cup.
