View Full Version : Curious about fat amounts
09-17-2002, 01:10 PM
I typically get about 30 grams of saturated fat, 32 grams polyunsaturated, 35 grams monounsaturated fats in my diet. 9%, 9%, 11%, respectively, of my total daily kcals.
Was just wondering if the saturated portion is ok where it is or if I should try and lower it further.

Be more weary of partially hydrogenated fats and trans fats than saturated fat.

.... what chicken daddy said is exactly right.
In fact your 9% cal souce from saturated fat is almost exactly ideal for health/growth.

Awesome, thanks guys. I'm pretty conscious about the hydrogenated and trans fats...most of my EFAs tend to come from flax, natty pb (w/o trans and hydrogenated), and veggies, beef...yada yada.
But thanks again, just what I was looking for =).
