Default Fat Intake for Muscle Building

I received an email this morning telling me my fat intake recommendations are outdated, and that fat should only be based on body weight. A liter should never eat more than their bodyweight dictates.

I believe my recommendation was to an 18 year old with a fast metabolism. I told him to eat 30-35% of his daily calories from fats.

This is a good example of science meeting reality, and reality winning.

Here we have an 18 year old kid who needs 4000 calories to grow. he has a hard enough time getting in his calories to begin with. So what are guys telling him to do? Limit protein and fats because of some study.

The result is that he is forced to rely very heavy on carbs. This is not only an unbalanced approach, and I don't care for such things, but it also makes it harder for this kid to get in his calories.

So that's my opinion.

What say you?
