Re: Ratios? Several questions...
I think that GOYA'S 55-30-15 is a good recipe for a healthy diet. Getting everything balanced at every meal is a good idea to sell diet books but totally unnecessary and impossibly tedious in the real world. Something that balances out over the course of a day or a week would please ME very much.
Unfortunately, try though I may (God KNOWS) I cannot get my fats that low. I LOVE meat and cheese and thus anything lower than a 30% fat intake I judge a HUGE SUCCESS and pat myself on the back.
Make your own low fat protein shake with the cheapest brand of protein powder, blended with skim milk, pure cocoa, and vanilla extract with ice cubes and xanthan gum for thickening...an egg if you're not afraid to eat one raw (never made me sick.) A packet of diet sweetner rounds out the lovely flavor (cocoa is bitter)
A WHOPPING pile of low fat protein...without the egg it's almost NON-FAT! It's low glycemic as well with the only sugars coming as lactose in the skim milk.
