    I haven't got a clue of how to count the grams of carbohydrates and fat. Is this explained in PB? I just got my copy in the mail.
    You may find that you don't need to count anything. If you just eat primal foods (meats, fats, veggies as the center of your diet) and don't worry about ratios to start you might do just fine.

    If you decide to count, their are some websites (Dr. B recommended one above) where you enter the amount of a certain food you have eaten and then it will list the amount of fat, calories, carbs, etc in the food and keep a running tally for you over time. I have used fitday.com to spotcheck occasionally just out of curiosity.

    You should try tracking your food intake, and you'll see that it's not hard to consume a lot of fat. I use cronometer, but there are many out there that people like.

    dailyburn.com will give you a nice breakdown of fat, carbs, and protein if you track. I'm pregnant as well and trying not to gain weight. So far I'm ahead of the game (compared to where I was during my first pregnancy), and I've only gained 2 lbs from when I found out I was expecting. I fluctuate between the same 3 numbers.

    I should have added 'for my pregnancy' given that I was at a low weight to start with (5'4, 120 lbs), have a crazy CRAZY high metabolism while nursing (so having some extra cushion of weight to burn is pretty much essential - I gained 40 lbs with my first two pregnancies and it was all burned off within months even though I ate tons of food and did not actively exercise. The rest of their first 18 months was a constant struggle not to become more underweight than I already was - I was a size 0 by the time they were a year old).

    This pregnancy I have not gained as much, but given the above information and the fact that I am in the 3rd trimester where my baby is gaining 1/2 lb a week it seems crazy that I would intentionally limit my carbs so that my body isn't able to gain weight.

    I eat about 4g/kg sometimes even a little more.
    well then

    65 kg. But I eat 5500 calories or so. So 260g of protein is still about 20% of my total calories

    some thought provoking ideas on buying and cooking higher fat (and cheaper) cuts of meat. haven't bought meat since last hunting season but will give the ideas above some thought when i run out of (very low fat) venison. my question is this. since the fat tends to absorb and concentrate the more toxic substances in "super market" meats is increasing fat intake in this way a good plan? don't even suggest grass fed,free range,organic meat options. this is not an economically viable option.

    No, it's a terrible idea to increase your fat by ingesting the grossest, most toxic kind available. If you cannot afford grass-fed meat then you need to get leaner cuts to minimize the bad toxins you eat and get your healthy fats from other sources.

    5500 kcal? What are you? A lumberjack working all day on giant redwoods with only a hacksaw?

    The percentage isn't really relevant here. The point is that 260 g is more -- correction, far more -- than you need for body repair. You're only 140 lbs for goodness' sake, your lean mass probably less than 130.

    Effectively, you're using most of that for fuel. This is like trying to run your car on fiberglass and spray-paint instead of fuel. Well ... not quite, because metabolic flexibility being what it is you can do it. You'd just far better not.

    There are a number of reasons why you'd want to avoid overconsuming protein:
