All my fat is mostly from healthy sources (usually less then a 1/3 is saturated, the rest unsaturated) but I have trouble determining how much. I hear .5 per lb of lmb, but is this a minimum? A required minimum or a recommended one? Or is there a healthy range .5-.75 or something.

Also, is fat ok before bed. (like a scoop of Peanut butter? yum)

Fat is important..as long as you get your protein and whatever # you have alocated for carbs - I fill up the rest with good fats.

If really low-fat diets tend to make your body hold onto more fat - I'd like to think the opposite is true for higher fat diets.

Mo fats mo bettah, IMO .:indian:

Now, how much is too much fat? Lets say you hit what you want, and have extra calories or something, would 1g per lb of lbm of fat be too much?

There is no set-in-stone #.

Too much fat is the amount that pushes you over what your aiming for.

1 gm = 9 cals
