The example we've given is for an inactive man to maintain a 190 lb weight.
|1. Estimate daily calorie intake||2100|
|2. Drop the last digit||210|
|3. Divide by 3 = Fat Grams / Day||70|
In this example, the daily fat target is 70 grams. This means that, over several days, fat intake should average 70 grams a day. (i.e. 100 g one day, 60 g the next, 45 g the next).
Once you work out your own fat gram target, you shouldn't have to do it again unless your daily calorie goal changes. The chart below applies the calculations to typical examples of daily calorie levels for men, women and dieters.
|1. Calories / Day||2400||1800||1400|
|2. Drop the last digit||240||180||140|
|3. Divide by 3 = Fat Grams / Day||80||60||47|
