According to this site, I am supposed to have 1250 Cal a day, but no mention of how many fat grams. Anyone have an idea of how many I should limit myself too? Thanks!
Cholesterol: less than 300mg a day
Fiber: 21-25g (women) and 30-38g (men)
That depends on your percentage for fat, really, not grams.
I try to keep my fat percent around 25%, My protein at 30% or so, and my carbs between 50-60%. It's never perfect, but it works.
