First things first, I want to establish that I KNOW that dietary fat doesn’t make you fat.
In the interest of building a good physique, I would like to dial in my macro ratios. Protein I’ve figured out, that is simple. But in regards to carbs and fats, that’s a little harder to figure out, ESPECIALLY fats, because there’s a lot of different info.
People say that fat is important for hormones, which is true, but also, fat is more easily stored as bodyfat (due to de novo lipogenesis being an inefficient process). Dr. Mike Isratel talked about it.
Furthermore, this T- nation article talks about linoleic acid, “The Fat that Makes You Fat”. Obviously, I would want to avoid this!
So, the main question boils down to, how much fat should I be eating, and where should they be coming from? (my current sources are eggs and nuts)
