In the end, it doesnt matter what I say or any other nutrition expert.

What matters is that we have to meet our nutrition requirements one way or another. So, focusing too much on macro nutrient ratios (protein, fat, carb) only, is not a good idea. We have to focus on the total picture, which includes not only macro nutrients, but also micro nutrients (vitamins, minerals, etc). And we have to not exceed recommendations of items that are known to be harmful (sat fat, cholesterol, sodium, etc).

So, as I have said on this forum many times...

Take your diet, enter it in the CRON o Meter, or other similar nutrition analysis program, and see how well your total nutrient intake is. Then if necessary, make adjustments to it so you optimize your intake.

My ongoing longterm challenge stands, and that is that it is virtually impossible to do this with a diet that is over 20% fat.

If you can do it, let me know and please post the results for us all to see.
