paulgfoster Posted April 28, 2015 Report Share Posted April 28, 2015 I have been managing very well to adhere to my allocated calories of late but must admit to total confusion over macro nutrient ratios..........The more i read the more i am not sure, I read Ornish Pritikin and it sounds plausible.....i was on Pritikin for years and scored zero on the coronary calcium scan,.......... Then i ate sad and moved towards metabolic syndrome..........cr has fixed this , but how should i eat now........ There is a huge movement towards high fat and olive oil, and it all makes sense...........I dont feel happy with a Paleo approach as i dont eat meat anyway.............ON a strict low fat regime like Pritikin i will have low cholesterol and ldl but also very low Hdl............some say this is risky , Pritikin says it isnt and higher fat diets which in my case would lead to better hdl levels, lead to more arterial plaque. Whatever is thought about recent changes in attitudes to fat if Ancel Keys practiced what he preached he did live to a 100. At the moment i have increased my fat intake to 50% of calories, and although mostly healthy fats my sat fats go up to nearly 20g a day along with them. I dont eat refined carbs at all or sugar, no bread, rice pasta or potatoes. Part of me says go back Ornish ?pritikin and the other part just doesnt know, and the more i read the more it seems the scientific community doesnt know either.(conclusively) What sort of macro nutrient ratios do most others follow on here?
