I am not an expert by any means, but what I try to do is get a certain percentage of nutrients from fats, carbs, and protein. I try for 20% of my calories coming from fats, 50% from carbs and 30% from protein. My recommendation for you would be to "track" a typical day of eating for you. This would show you how much of your calories are coming from fat and whether that fits into your eating program.

I just finished reading Tosca Reno's book (Clean Eating Stripped)....and I'm a little confused about healthy fats....

If I eat:
2 tbsp hummus
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp healthy oil

Is that too much?? Do I need to have just 1 tbsp pb if I am eating hummus that day?? I tend to eat my hummus until it's gone, peanut butter for breakfast every day and I will usually incorporate some EVOO or coconut oil into my dinner meal. Just want to make sure I'm not overdoing my "healthy" fats....oh, and does that mean I shouldn't have nuts on this day??? I don't even want to eat nuts, but I bought some to have as a portable snack since I'm trying to cut out all meal bars (protein bars).
See? Too many fats right?

I would like to be able to not log my food, but stuff like this starts freaking me out. Aaaaahhhhh!!!


Don't stop when you're tired...stop when you're done!
