maybe i'm wrong, on my creatine bottle it says one teaspoon == 5 grams/1 serving of creatine.

yup.. thats right..

But creatine might be a less dense food than mayo, especially with creatine being a powder right?

Am I being really thick or does that make sense?

my tub says per 15 grams = 4.5 grams of fat... so I am thinking 2 table spoons = 9 grams of fat.. what ya think?

If thats right I was doing it wrong before :(

DAMN I am one stupid mofo.

I am thining how the hell can 15 g's be 4.5 grams of fat????

Then I looked on the tub and the one my mum has is light!!!! d'oh..

The real stuff that I buy is 80 g's fat per 100

So i tablespoon at 15 g's is 12 grams.. thats cool

isn't 5 grams, 5 grams no matter what the substance?

yea but a fluffy powder will take more volume than oil

Yup :nod:

Also some substances are a high % of water so 5 grams may only have 2 grams of nutrients.

I think grams can differ. My creatine says 1 tsp = 5g and my protein powder scoop says it's 28g. But 6 tsp fill up about half of my protein scoop...?

actually a gram is a gram no matter what

the problem is that you are trying to equate x grams = x volume
say 5 g = 1 tsp
this is not always the case
whey is fluffy and will take more volume than creatine
take some non micronized creatine and it will not be the same.

mayo isn't unhealthy unless you eat tons of it. ;)

Hm.. maybe,but most people go overboard with mayo and consume big amounts of it=big amounts of omega 6's=crap. :)

I've seen mayo on the market now that is omega 3 enriched. It was in the Natural Foods section of the grocery store.

I thought omega-6 helped stimulate your precious GH release? :)

GH is normally stimulated by exercise,sleep and hypoglycaemia and suppressed by hyperglycaemia.

15 grams will give a thin coverage of mayo over the bread.
10 grams with start to leave gaps in the spread. thats a guide for mayo levels.

I eat some kind of mayo every day now. though have various mayos from 3% fat up to 80% fat and different falvours as well.

Wait, Mayo is high in 6's. **** me, I'm doin keto and eating a lot of mayo. I was trying to keep my 6's low and my 3's high. What about olive oil?

depends on what the mayo is made with.....if you are using a canola mayo, it's actually high in 3s.

don't sweat it so much as your fat to protein ratio though.....
