    I second Kathy's comments. Animal based fats are the worst. Fats from veggies the best. Fiber is very important too.
    Great walking!!
    Have a Fantastic Friday!

    You wanted to cut down on fat... I have the same issue! LOL

    Just out of curiosity I looked up the choices you listed here...

    Kirkwood chicken wings about 5 grams fat per wing, 4 wings = 20 grams!
    Butter is 11.5 grams fat per tbsp, so half is still almost 6 grams
    1/8 c of pecans is 10.7 grams of fat.
    sugar free creamers averages 1-2 grams of fat per tbsp
    almond butter averages 8.9 grams of fat per tbsp

    the type of fat makes a difference, but you're right about too much... and where are the vitamins, so everything works right-- and where is the fiber? I know you're trying something new with cycling the carbs, but your digestive system needs about 25-35 grams a day, too, to help prevent colon cancer. 18 grams is NOT enough (voice of experience!) and I honestly can't see how it could be made up the next day without some rather drastic consequences... I don't know how you could possibly eat 50-70 grams from natural sources in one day--that is a LOT of fruits and veggies...

    I can only reach 25 by using a supplement (can't handle the minerals in the fruits and veggies...)

    The only way for me to get things balanced is to plan ahead.

    I don't know if you use the full report at the bottom of the Nutrition tracker, but I've found it very useful lately in doing just that. I added the nutrients I want to track besides the basics, and now I just enter the stuff I want to eat, do a daily feedback to see where I need to tweak, and the full report will tell me which specific foods put me over my goals... I'm learning to make better choices.

    Maybe you can try that with your cycling and come up with a better balance?... just saying...
