    so, the diet back then was
    150g fat = 1200 cals
    150g pro = 600 cals
    300g carbs = 1200 cals

    i would say, around 40-60gm of saturated fat then.

    150g fat is actually 1350kcal (9kcal/g).

    Replacing protein (as opposed to carbohydrate) intake with fat intake is a questionable proposition for two main reasons:
    -fat metabolism is more efficient than protein metabolism (the 4kcal/g for protein usually winds up being closer to 3kcal/g)
    -from what I've been reading lately, high fat and high carb at the same time for prolonged periods of time is probably not a good idea. Of course, a lot depends on the timing of your meals relative to exercise.

    my bad, forgot it was 9 not 8

    that means i was consuming a bit less carbs

    well at this point in time ive replaced my fat intake (about 90g worth) with pro intake and a bit more carb and reduced my sat intake to about 20g

    Thanks for the replies guys, guess it's going to have to be a case of trial and error. I'll probably keep a diary of how things are going and maybe write up how things went after 2 months, so the next person looking for some insight has someone's experience to go off.
