I was going to post a very similair question. The fat blocks listed on this site -- they are 1.5 g fat each? Correct? For instance, 3 almonds is 1.5 grams (or is it 3?); 1 macadamia nut is 1.5 (or is it 3?); Thus, if we eat a 'no fat' protein -- like egg whites -- then we need to DOUBLE our fat block and eat 6 almonds instead of 3 ----- Do I have this right? Thanks so much! Also, just curious for my own information. If you're not eating 'no fat' protein, why does one double up on the fat? Again, thanks!
Yes Elaine, you have it right. Also, 3 almonds contains about 1 .5 g fat, as does 1 macadamia nut. Under certain circumstances people benefit from adding more monounsaturated fat to their usual balance, such as being below ideal body fat %, having energy needs beyond those provided by one's protein requirement (athletes have this need), being very carbohydrate sensitive, etc.
