I've scoured the alternative threads for information and have been studying nutrition labels, I'm ready to take the plunge - but have one question for you experts out there. How do you calculate the "30% or less calories from fat" ? Here's a label from a carton of Muscle Milk Lite for example.

Calories 100
Fat 2.6 g
Saturated 0.5g
+Trans 0g
Cholesterol 10 mg
Sodium 270 mg
Potassium 520 mg
Carbohydrate 5 g
Fibre 1 g
Sugars 0 g
Protein 15 g

Based on this - how would you make that calculation?
You need the calories from fat, then just multiply by 3. If it's less than the total calories it's less than 30% calories from fat.

It's an overall guideline...for example IP's wafers and soy nuts are both more than 30% calories from fat.
