Because of this, my pie chart shows fat as being the biggest percentage of my days. Its all unsaturated fat so it should be fine, right? Also, Healthy cholesterol/BP levels and I'm 24 and active (when I am not sitting at my desk at work). Please HELP!
I tried this diet for a while (years back as a veggie) - I did the Atkins diet, but replaced meats with eggs and vegan protein. I got my fats from healthy oils, dressings and full-fat cheeses. I got my carbs (mostly) from leafy greens and other raw veggies. Boring diet - but it works! (I currently am back on the diet, but have gone back to eating meats and fish)
70% fats, 25% protein, 5% carbs was the ratio I aimed for (this diet did not include nuts, soy, any sort of grains or seeds etc)
I never had any negative health repurcussions and was able to transition back to regular eating eventually!
