The ratio of P/C/F is 44/22/34.

It's cals/pro/carb/fat
5 egg whites- 86 / 18 / 1 / 0
.5 tbs canola oil 60 / 0 / 0 / 7
1 sl. FF cheese 30 / 5 / 3 / 0
.5 cup FF CC 80 / 14 / 7 / 0
1 Tbs NPB 105 / 4 / 3 / 8
.5 c fiber one 60 / 2 / 25 / 1
1 oz chicken 33 / 7 / 0 / 1

------------------------------
totals- 454 / 50 / 39 / 17


MY question is this, I know that the carbs are fairly low and many feel it is important for carbs in the morning. Is there anything wrong with them being so low? also, is there a problem with having fat in the morning? I know it slows digestion and is that something i would want to avoid since my body has been in a fasting state durring sleep? Also is it bad to NOT change my breakfast?

Cut fat, add carbs???

Any changes?

Canola oil can get the axe and use olive oil instead. I've replaced almost all of my oil usage (well, scratch that... all of my oil usage) with Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) and I haven't looked back.

Dont cook with the olive oil though.

Also what are your goals?

Why not canola?

Not sure about this one but some canola oil is more processed than EVOO.

Why not?
Low smoking point and can hydrogenate if it is heated too high. Or so I've heard/read.

That sucks. I love canola because of its low sat fat. I went to this medicine conference and this cardiologist couldn't stop raving about how canola is the best and EVOO is overrated. I think I'll stick with canola.

I thought the same before, but SobaAddict had a good link about how it's basically a myth that you can't cook with olive oil. Can't seem to find the thread, though.

olive oil elitists. :)

I'd say go with some more carbs and save the fats for late in the day.
