    I couldn't tell you. But I can say I never worry about eating too much fat. I eat the bacon, sometimes a pack in the morning, sometimes no bacon. I make sure to eat the fat on the meat and stomach it like a warrior.

    It works out, forget grams.

    I haven't really been counting lately. I bet it is at least 1/2 my calories. I don't go out of my way to eat it. I know some folks here eat coconut oil by the spoonful, but I've never been into that.

    I have a splash of cream in my coffee. I'm not shy about adding a little fat to the pan when I'm cooking or putting a little butter on my veggies. Aside from a bit of bacon on the weekends, I don't tend to go for really fatty cuts of meat. Just personal taste. Cheese is an occasional indulgence. Not a daily thing. It doesn't sound like a lot but it adds up.

    By a bit of bacon I mean a couple rashers. My husband and I go through a 1/2 pound pack between the two of us on the weekend.

    ETA: I just looked at our bacon and a pack is 360 cal with 30g of fat. I don't think that's a whole lot. I could eat that much for breakfast if I weren't also eating eggs. Rock on, Dado.

    Yea, like the the 12 pieces or so that come in a regular pack of bacon from the supermarket.

    When I eat the Bosnian bacon from the Bosnian store, I don't know. I eat that in crazy ammounts and it's all raw. Someone said it's smoked. That's all good to me.

    Hey, if you're asking me, throw the whole damn phone out not just the app.

    Feel is a lost art.

    I think given that we get fat also through oils that we cook with and the fact that it's in many things to varying degrees that we think of as protein (meat and eggs) it's hard to accurately track one's absolute fat intake.
