    Fat intake

    Shop Now
    2/3's done the book. Have not come across it or missed it.

    I know suppose to eat roughly 1g protein per lb. Read about the carb intake "sweet spot" for losing weight.

    Have not seen how much fat to consume daily. ??????

    54 year old male, around 200 lbs, 5'8"

    Thanks in advance

    It's in there. You take your total caloric requirements, subtract the protein and carbs, and the rest is fat.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    You should aim for lowish carbs. Protein remains constant at somewhere between 20-30%. Fat makes up the remainder.

    Edit: Beaten to the punch.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Ha-ha. I win the race!

    As an example, Here's what I ate today
    2 avocados
    2 duck eggs
    12 ounces of fatty rib meat
    1 can of oysters
    1 box of coconut milk

    Fat is 185.5grams, 66% of my calories (it is often higher, if I drink the oil in my pan after cooking veggies in it)
    Protein is 151grams, 26% of my calories
    Carbs are 47.5grams, 7% of my calories

    That's a pretty standard day, except I carb cycle sometimes, so those days have less fat.

    This probably won't help you with your numbers, but I just ate for the first time in almost 24 hours (got busy), and on the way home I grabbed a half pint of heavy whipping cream to sip on while I was making food, then finished off the rest of it with a few strawberries for dessert.
