    You want to eat every day about the %s I gave. Tuesday you had too much protein and not enough fats. This is a HighFat diet. Wednesday too much protein and not enough carbs.

    Ok, I've had dinner and my numbers are sitting as follows...

    29% protein, 12% carbs, 59% fat

    I had 2 eggs and 3 pieces of bacon, 4 slices of lunch meat, 2 slices of provolone, some mayo and mustard, asst raw veggies at lunch and for dinner I sautéed chicken and asparagus in butter. Oh, and I made guacamole with 1/2 avocado, tomato, onion and lime juice. What else should I be adding to increase fat without adding protein?

    My 2c worth is that you need to be eating more real meat and less processed meat derived foods. Think steak and eggs, or a lox omelet. Skip the bacon and lunchmeat. Also if you stick with red (ruminant) meat and seafood and stay away from the pork and poultry, you will get a better O3/O6 ratio and a higher fat/protein content. How about adding some coconut to your diet? Great MCT fats.

It just seems like there are too many variables for that to be accurate - such as muscle tone and such.
    No, it's complete bunk once you are talking about individuals. Measure body fat % instead.

    Yep. The fatty cuts of meat are very nutritious and more fat than protein. Although good (real) bacon is still pretty awesome.

    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.

    Thanks for the recommendation of coconut. Completely forgot I bought some organic unsweetened flakes. I mixed 4 tbsp with an ounce of cocoa roast almonds for a little snack. Yum! Hard to believe those little coconut flakes have so much (good) fat in them!
