Let me re-iterate myself and actually correct myself.
I do not literally mean the whole idea is bullsh!t, I was just kind of annoyed because I see this topic pop up time and time again across MULTIPLE sites.
I also do know that I really should not be giving advice and was and still am very hesitant in saying stuff regarding nutrition. I try to make sure I do not give advice or post anything because it is quite hypocritical which I realize.
I have read the articles, 3x to be exact, and every other article published on this site.
What has been posted in following articles about macro separation is to separate carbs and fat so that there is no more than 5g fat in PC meal and no more than 10g carbs in PF meal (forget which article listed this vague number to go by, but it is in here somewhere)
Anyways, like I was saying with my examples, they will not get you fat. Now separating them to avoid large doses of both is what I too believe in, but then again, if you eat healthy, it's kind of hard to mix these macros to the point of which we are talking about.
Again, another "extreme" example is a cup of oatmeal and 1/4 cup walnuts...Again, almost 23g of fat, 16g protein, 60g carbs. For breakfast? It's a fine meal. You have omega 3's, omega 6's slow carbs and protein (although extremely low).
What I was trying to say is you shouldn't try to separate the two macros to which they have been limited to (the 5g and 10g suggestions posted in later articles, possibly Metabolism Repair Plan article discussion, I think?)
In my opinion keep fat below 13-15g in PC meal (meaning don't add a fat source like olive oil) and keep carbs below 15-20 (meaning again don't add in a starch).
That's what I truly meant and should have explained myself more thoroughly.
To make sure I don't get anybody wrong - I think Dr. Berardi is the greatest mind to come into nutrition, so don't take this as me bashing his methods for meals and what not because I am not suggesting you ignore his methods.
Thanks and sorry.
