Can you let me know how many grams of fat, carbs and protein would you recommend I have in a 2400 calorie diet?

Ratio of foods: Ahhh, the classic answer is 40/30/30. That is 40% carbs, 30% fat, 30% protein. But I disagree.

This way there is no counting, measuring or weighing and weight control is a snap. Just don't be in denial of what you're eating. ...Read more

What negative health complication could arise when doing protein shake diet, high protein, zero carb and zero fat, for a short period (10 days)?

So not having that for 10 days seems rather severe. Also, there is thought that a no fat diet tends to make people have less satiety and feel hungry more. What type of protein, vegetable or meat? It's not a balanced approach. Low carb is better. ...Read more
