Person came in with an honest question, sparkers answered by giving non-asked for advice and opinions.
I too, would like to know how much oil is used when deep frying. I don't do it often (heck, I don't even own a deep fryer) but on the occasions it is done whether out of a socail event or just because you really want that crispy taste and texture which there is nothing wrong with indulging in as long as it isn't overly often, it would be nice to know how much fat is actually in the meal to log it accurately in the tracker.
And also, I have the lowest set of calories Spark lets a male have (1500-1750) I NEED a minimum of 35g fat a day for a healthy body process. I actually struggle to get there when I'm eating chicken with meals.
Say I have one of my favorite breakfasts of Greek yogurt with oatmeal and fruit, then chicken breast, veggies, and sweet potato for lunch, then an apple and jerky as an afternoon snack. I've got all sorts of calories left and am feeling plenty full with 30g of fat still needed. Why not deep fry some fish? The fish is so lean, I'm sure the oil won't be over 40g fat so I'm perfect for the day. Why are you condemning someone for frying some food when it can be done responsibly? All they (and I) want to know is a best guesstimate for how much oil is actually consumed.
