Question A question about nutrition...

Ok, I counted calories for 4-26-2005 and it added up to 1192 calories. I consumed 59 grams of fat yesterday. what the appropriate amount of fat to consume on a 1200 calorie diet??

They say its healthy to keep your fat calories to count for 30%. On 1200 calories thats about 40g of fat or less. On 2000 calories thats about 65g.

Hope that helps. By the by, thats going off of the FDA's regulations for the past few years.

I agree with the fat information but you probably shouldn't go under 1200 calories. It puts your body in starvation mode. Your body thinks its starving and will hold on to each and every calorie to make sure it has enough for later.

Good luck!

Try mypyramid.gov. It will tell you if you are eating enough fat/protien/carbs and nutrients. Also, Amber is right, you shouldn't go below 1200 calories. But you were close, and as long as you eat enough the next day (like 1300), you should be OK.
