Lots of fat in eggs too! That was a surprise for me. I could definitely eat 100% fat in a day if all I ate was Macadamia Nuts.

I think what you need to do is ask your MD or dietician what percentages they know will be best for you.

I try to keep them all balance (like Kathy) and hope for lower fat than the others.

Your body will let you know what you need. Takes practice to listen; I am still working on it.

Good Luck, Carren
