Somewhat more "good fat"
My diet was -- and still is -- roughly 45% fat, 15% protein and 40% carbohydrates. To get the ratio of fat, carbohydrates and protein, I was told to eat the following each day: Seven servings of starch, six servings of protein, four vegetables, four fruits, a half cup milk, and 15 servings of fat. Before you fixate on those numbers, consider serving size. Exchanges are based on those of both the American Dietetic Association and American Diabetes Association. One starch equals 15 grams of carbohydrate which you get from a single piece of bread, a small potato, a half cup of pasta or a third of a cup of rice. A fruit serving is also 15 grams of carbohydrate and can be a small apple, 3/4 cup of berries or a half cup of orange juice. A meat serving is 7 grams of protein -- typically one ounce of meat, chicken, fish or tofu. A vegetable is one cup raw or one half cup cooked, a milk serving is eight ounces and a fat serving is one teaspoon of oil or a tablespoon of prepared salad dressing, an eighth of an avocado, six almonds or two teaspoons of peanut butter. Remember, the number of servings of each exchange depends on the number of calories you need to eat and that is based on your own weight, gender, activity level and other considerations.
