How much MCT oil do you take? I've been doing 2 tbs in bulletproof coffee every morning. Now I've started adding another tbs straight later in the day.

I do know. I don't usually track or count anything so that was just a one day spot check. A lot of days my carbs are closer to 100g so yesterday was a low carb day for me. My diet has probably been closer to 40% protein, 30% carb and 30% fat since going paleo so I'm experimenting with upping fat now to try to loose body fat and see how I feel mentally

"I'm trying to do 50% fat for macros"...that is a percentage of energy (calories) i presume, which is the default for listing macronutrient ratios.

if you didn't know already, your macro percentages based on the numbers you give above, is f:66% p:25.5% c:8.5% (total energy 2210 calories)

I'm going by Dave Asprey's recipe. He says build up to 2 tbs MCT and 2 tbs butter and I have built up to that. I'm trying to do 50% fat for macros. I don't usually count but I did track everything yesterday which was a typical day of eating and by the end I was at 162 g fat (mct, kerrygold, evoo, evco, egg, grassfed beef) , 141 g protein, 47 g carb

Why would you consume so much? I use around a tablespoon at most when I have a bulletproof coffee.
