  • approx. how much fat do you take in a day?

    I'm just curious how much fat you guys normally consume in a day (approximately)? I was looking over my mom's food log that I made her write and she gets about 15-20g a day in fat (she has numerous minor health problems).

    I don't personally set a limit, just try to get a good amount of it in

    I use a food log on my Android called Mynetdiary. It is very simple and helps me keep track.

    This last week I have been averaging:

    156g Fat
    4g Trans Fat
    48g Sat. Fat

      Most of the days that I actually tracked show about 90-100g a day. I don't have a breakdown but my fats come from meat, eggs, butter, dairy, & avocados.

        Easily 80-100. Easily half is saturated.

        As for health, its only greatly improved since doing this from Jan 2011.

            Where are you getting that transfat? That's worrisome.

              I'm not sure- probably around 100g, I think it ends up working to about 65% of my calories.

                I average anywhere from 70 to 120grams. Usually about 65% of my calories.
                Start of PB weight Aug/2011: 217
                Start of Leptin Reset end of Aug/2011: 202.4
                current weight: 199.6

                Follow me and see what my kids are eating for lunch.

                    When I eat out (rarely), I try to account for the worst possible choices. So, for example, if I have In-n-Out burgers, I assume that the cheese they use is the nastiest most artificial cheese out there.

                    Thus, the cheese I typically account for has Trans. Fat.
                    Also, I slipped up and ate a few "All-Beef" franks that I didn't notice had Trans. Fat until they had been consumed.

                        What's truly worrisome is that US labeling regulations allow "trans fat free" claims on any product that has less than 0.5g of trans fats per 14g serving, or on oil/fat products where trans fats make up less than either 3% or 5-6% of volume. (varies depending on which resources you look at)

                          this is a fantastic guide on how to figure out how much to shoot for.

                          I average about 80 to 100g around 50% or so of my total intake.

                              Gotcha. 4g/day just seemed really high.
