  • It generally is figured as a percentage of your daily caloric intake, which varies with your age, sex, and activity level. Additionally, you should pay attention to the type of fat, avoiding saturated fats, and getting your allotment mostly in unsaturated (mostly vegetable) fats and fish oils. The new USDA Food Pyramid is a pretty good and workable guide, unlike the old ones.
  • Assuming you're trying to lose weight, try to shoot for 30-35 grams of fat a day, it may take a few weeks to discipline yourself down to that but it works.
  • The American Heart Association recommends limiting dietary fat to 30% of total calories, however, if you are overweight, need to lower blood cholesterol or have another medical concern, you may need less than the recommended 30%. Ask your health care professional what percentage of fat is right for you.
  • The average person should have about 85- 100 grams of fat per day. If you are on a diet you should have about 60 grams of fat per day.
  • The United States Health Department states the following on their site: A 1,600 calorie per day diet: 18 grams of saturated fat or less, 53 grams of fat or less. A 2,000 calorie per day diet: 20 grams of saturated fat or less, 65 grams of fat or less. A 2,200 calorie per day diet: 24 grams of saturated fat or less, 73 grams of fat or less. A 2,500 calorie per day diet: 25 grams of saturated fat or less, 80 grams of fat or less . A 2,800 calorie per day diet: 31 grams of saturated fat or less, 93 grams of fat or less. Keep in mind that most women should have a diet of no more than 2,000 calories/day, men no more than 2,500/day.) If you are trying to lose weight, 30 grams of fat. If you are a young teenager about 40-65 grams of fat. Consuming more than 65 grams of fat a day is unhealthy, an adult should have 65 grams or a little less simple. Just don't eat too much and eat fats sparingly.

The amount of fat will depend on your goal. This means whether you want to gain weight, lose weight or maintain it.

Once you have the objective in mind, you will have to calculate your calorie intake per day. This can be done with the help of numerous online calculators which are available.

The next step is to break this calorie intake based on your macronutrients. That is how many calories are you planning to get from carbohydrates, fats and proteins. As per dietery guidlines, 50% of your diet should be carbs, 30% fats and 20% proteins. Fats provide 9 cal/gm. Carbs and proteins provide 4 cal/gm. Hence fats are highly calorie dense food.

You can tweak that percentage based on your body. But you should be careful to not do any major changes.

To lose weight just reduce calorie consumption.

To gain, increase calorie consumption.

To maintain, let it remain as is.
