I usually stay within the guidelines of both protein and fat. Where I have a problem is sodium, those lunch prepackaged foods or can soups are loaded with the stuff. I can't deal with healthy choice soups no taste there at all. I really need to watch it because of water retention but it's so difficult.

I'm most of the time over on them. Can't seem to get the target right. I'm no expert but here some healthy examples of a fats olive oil 100%, avocado, the health food store has almond butter, or natural peanut butter but get ready to shell out some money they're expensive, almonds are another good example of a good fat these fats are higher in calorie so watch portions.....thats all I know?

It doesn't sound like your protein consumption is a problem... You are very close to the right range. As far as the fat goes, I know you do need some in your diet but I don't know if that will effect your ability to lose weight. Maybe ask this same question on the diet and nutrition forum where the experts can answer...?

i have no idea if it'll help. i'd go nuts at the numbers and have enough of a time just trying to stay in the ranges.

i do know that protein helps muscle development pretty well, and some days i'm barely above minimum fat (and don't even get there), but my protein hasn't ever been too high. i just don't get that many protein rich things around here (had fish today, though, so i've got about half what's in my approved range).

i really am not sure how this works. if i find something, though, i'll certainly let you know.

I'm a nerd out of habit, not out of spite.

Every day I check the little pie chart on my food tracker. I'm always a bit over on the protein and a bit under in fat.

Suggestions?

Would getting this right help me lose?

For example - today . . .

Recommended 15 % Protein . . . I had 19.4%
Recommended 30 % fat . . . . . I had 14.8%
