 04 Sep 2010 06:20 PM Hi everybody!! For a normal block is 1CB 1PB(with 1.5gr of fat) and 1FB(1.5gr)right? The thing is i need to double my fat so, for one block it would be 1CB 1PB (with 1.5 of fat) and 2FB(4.5 gr)? or do the 2FB have to contain 3gr?? do you understand what I mean?

 04 Sep 2010 07:40 PM 1 F block is 1.5 grams because most Low-Fat Protein sources contain some fat. A FULL serving of fat is 3 grams, which you use with fat-Free protein sources.

 04 Sep 2010 08:08 PM hi john no, is not clear i wanted to say you that if i want to double fat, do i need to add 3gr more or only 1.5gr, because the protein only has 1.5gr and for normal block we eat 1F(1.5) so in total 3gr and if i want to double fat do i only add 1.5 or 3gr of fat?

 05 Sep 2010 07:21 AM Ahhh, got it. If you are doubling Fat then add 3 more grams per block of Protein.SO, 1P, 1C, 2F = 7gramsP, 9gramsC, 6gramsF Total.OR since your Protein contains some F, add 4,5gramsF. ~john --> Happily married 26 years --> 07 Feb 1986 <>< <>< <>< <>< PTL Col 3:23-24 ><> ><> ><> ><> Live the healthiest life you can enjoy, not the healthiest life you can tolerate.

 05 Sep 2010 07:49 PM 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!

 06 Sep 2010 08:15 AM Yes 3 almonds = 1.5 grams Fat = 1 fat block with a low-fat Protein. 6 almonds = 3 grams Fat = 2 fat blocks with a no-fat protein. Easier to think of a serving of Fat as 3 grams.A serving of protein is 7 grams, and a serving of Carbs is 9 grams. ~john --> Happily married 26 years --> 07 Feb 1986 <>< <>< <>< <>< PTL Col 3:23-24 ><> ><> ><> ><> Live the healthiest life you can enjoy, not the healthiest life you can tolerate.

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.______________________________________ sue Lost 100 lbs 15 yrs ago, off BP meds, thanks to the Zone diet and Zone fish oil.
