Subject:         Dr. G; Do I get enough fatty acids?

Using your chart in 80/10/10 diet, a typical day for me looks like this in
perspective of ALA:

16 oz strawberries = 0.3 g
50 oz bananas= 0.375 g

50 oz oranges= 0.125 g
45 oz tomatoes= 0.06 g

Sum: 0.86 grams of ALA.

The meal plan is 2500 calories and 0.5% of them is 12.5 which equals about 1.5
grams of ALA needed according to WHO, page 122 in your book. So my
calculation is that I at least need 0.5 grams more.

What do you think of this? Should I start with overt fats? Should I change the
constitution? I think I can eat about 300 more calories from fruit or veggies
without feeling I've ate too much, but that small amount won't make that much

Shall I go ahead without overt fats, which I like and just watch out for symptoms?
I'm not so fancy about risks. But if I would start with for example walnuts, how
can I be absolutely sure that they're raw? Because wouldn't the value of the fat be
completely lost if it wasn't?
