Ok, my protein and carbs are right on. My goal is to be very lean all year around! I want to be as cut as possible, while adding muscle as well. I am 6 feet tall, weight 170 pounds right now.

Here are the GOOD fats I take in on a DAILY basis:

Olive Oil (2-3 teaspoons)
Avocado (1 Whole)
Peanut Butter (thick spread over a slice of bread)
Flax Seed Oil (3 capsules)
Fish Oil (3 capsules)

Besides that, I keep my other fats to a very minumum. My diet is very clean, and the only other fats I get is from milk and cottage cheese.

Am I taking in too much good fats if I want to be very cut?

1. I assume you want to clean bulk (staying lean while bulking up a bit)

2. Calculate the actual fat all that has... it actually looks possibly a bit less.... those EFA caps only have like 1gram of fat each... a TABLEspoon of olive oil has like 15grams of fat.. dunno about the advocado and PB has like 8 per TBSP.

I'm cutting and I take in about 45-55grams of EFAs... so yea.

Thanks guys for the replies so far. I am not sure exactly how much carbs I am taking in right now. BUt yes, I am doing a clean bulk.

Now, how do you figure out how much TOTAL fat you need? What is the formula for someone trying to stay very lean?

IMO never go below 20% healthy fat, so there's your minimum amount.

ummm I'm not so sure about the accuracy of that statement. I believe one of the best ways to control insulin levels is by taking healthy fats with carbs. If anything I'd stay away from mixing protein and carbs without healthy fats.

I agree.
I wouldn't follow the timed carb diet... it is based completely on theory and has been proven to not be very effective at what it claims to do.

yah i'm an endomorph and I've recently raised my fats to 27-28% of my daily intake... I'm 190 pounds putting away 3500-3700 calories/day and I can't gain weight, lol... and I ate pasta with a handful of peanuts last night :) Take that food combining theory! That does not look like too much good fat btw. Make sure you get some saturates though... I eat like 3+ egg yolks per day, red meat occasionally, it is all good man.
