Fat Checkup

Fat Guidelines

According to Nutrition and Athletic Performance, the Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution range for fat is 20 to 35% of energy intake and athletes can follow this general recommendation.

So based on my calorie checkup, that's 20-35% of 2337 calories or 467-818 calories from fat or 52-91 grams of fat.

TOTAL DAILY FAT GUIDLINES: 52-91
