My question is in regards to your healthy fat intake in a day. I am 215 lbs at about 9 % bf. I am beginning to cut for a contest in about 6 weeks and i was just curious about some opinions on what amount of fat I should increase my daily amount to. I currently take about 3 tablespoons of flaxseed oil a day (spaced at 7 am, 12pm and 7 pm with post workout shake). I have been adding avocado’s to the diet about 3 times a week to start adding more healthy fats also. I am trying to trouble shoot the fat intake thing cuz last contest i competed in i didn’t get enough fat and I feel as if I could benefit more with a higher intake of fat, but how much is enough? Also, what is the story with intaking fat with a post workout shake? Does that inhibit protein synthesis or slow it down at all? Help me out guys, I would greatly appreciate it.
GO HEAVY OR GO HOME!!!
