As a vegetarian, my protein comes from nuts, dairy, tofu, and added protein powder. I buy everything low-fat and low-sodium, but I have gone over my fat macro every single day in the two months since I've been on transition and then maintenance, because these sources are all rather high in fat even in the reduced version.
I have not gone over my calorie ceiling and I have not gained weight and I do drink plenty of water, so I'm asking here more about general health than weight loss/maintenance: It seems to me that too much fat is bad for you. I know we need some fat or our skin and hair quickly show the lack (that happened to me during the weight reduction phase, when I was diligent about limiting fat, but now I'm trying to get enough protein every day). But too much fat seems like an unhealthy way to get something to burn as we exert ourselves physically. It seems that our preferred fuels would be carbs and protein.
I know I could reset my macros, but that seems a bit like gaming the system. What do you all think about having excessive fat on a daily basis if everything else (including water, exercise, and weight itself) is in balance?
