    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.
    The remainder is an unjustifiable, egotistical power struggle
    At the expense of the American dream, American dream

    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.
    The remainder is an unjustifiable, egotistical power struggle

    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.
