I have a difficult time defining "too many fats". What are too many? what's your macros set for - i.e., what is your target? I can't get mine as *high* as I'd like them!

I'd be more alert to eating too many peanut products. The coconut oil is good - EVOO is fine for cold use, but if you're cooking with olive oil, it should be the regular version, not so much the EVOO.

It depends on your plan, how much of what macro you're getting. We have great tools in the Tracker here. Make use of that and remember to enter everything you put in your mouth!

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!
