I'm asking in general, but I know Koffee can help, and rather than call I thought I'd ask here since others could benefit.
Tell me about fat and why it matter what your percentage of calories come from fat.
I understand that fat isn't carrying nutrition, but if you are needing a certain number of calories, what difference does it make whether the calories come from fat or other sources? I'm not defending fat, just trying to understand what the difference is in how we process it, or it's value, when it comes to looking at it from a strictly caloric perspective. Or am I missing the big picture in that if you get the right nutrition, you pretty much have to have the calories from non-fat sources to balance things out?
For what it's worth, I'm down to a hair over 190 from 205 in about a month and a half. Counting calories in and out, trying to maintain about 1000 calories per day deficit.
