    I know that general logic is meals should consist of:

    Protein + carbs
    or
    Protein + Fats

    Is it a big deal if my lunch consists of Proteins + carbs + fats (all three.)
    --usually oatmeal with peanut butter and protein powder.--:drool:

    I notice LOTS of people on here go with both oats and peanut butter in their shakes, which is basically the same thing. So is this going to make much of a difference in the grand scheme of things? Given that its basically the only meal of the day i combine carbs and fats.

    I care more about the totals rather than if I combine them.
    Almonds have some of each macro... Musclemilk does too.
    Now overall for the day I don't really try to consume a high fat and high carb intake.

    You shoot for overall macros of
    50% protein
    and the other 50% from carbs and fats, right? I recall you posting that.

    out of curiosity, how many calories a day do you consume?

    Edit:
    never mind, just checked in on your log. Answers are all right there :big grin:

    Depends. Today for example I went really low on carbs and it was 50% fat/ 42% protein and 7% carbs. I don't really go by percentages though.

    On my low carb days my goal is that my total protein (in grams) is equal to or greater than the sum of my fats and carbs.
