Where do they list fat/protein ratios?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 08, 2011 at 2:45 AM

I often often see people here saying things like, "my diet is 70% fat, 30% protein". Or I guess the recommended ideal is 80/20? Anyway, where do you find those numbers, for instance on your average chucksteak, you average soup bone, etc.? Is there a chart online? Tell me where, before protein poisoning kills me!!!

Thanks

"protein poisoning" is a slightly misleading term since it's more about "protein consuming in the absence of fat" that makes a person sick. just remember to keep daily calories from protein under around 40%-ish

No, I have no symptoms. Just leery of it. I didn't know you had to limit fat to get in the danger zone. I guess I'm safe, because I've been buying the fattiest cuts I find for quite some time now.

I'll bite: "How much beta carotene does the average American tomato have?" - 0% RDI?

Just a caveat, do not let these sites consume your soul! Do you want to know off hand how much beta carotene the average American tomato has? You can ask me!
