Continuing the discussion from My Torontonian Formula: 100% Complete @ $4.55 / Day:
One of the problems I’ve been having with my formula (Google Drive Link) that I want to nail down is the fact that at present, I am obtaining 47% of my calories from an oil ingredient, the Saporito Vegetable Oil (3000ml). I’m doing this because:
- I want to keep the cost of my mixture down to under $5.00 / Day.
- I want to keep the mixture simple, and ensure there are as few ingredients as possible.
However, I’ve been told that obtaining that many calories from fat isn’t optimal, and my spreadsheet does show that with 91g of fat from the Vegetable Oil, I’m consuming 167.5% of my recommended fat intake for the day.
With that said, other suggestions such as Maltodextrin don’t really work for me; while a suitable replacement for the calories, my Mutant Mass being present in the mixture ensures that I’ll go way over on Carbs, as well as add more than $1.00 / Day to the total Cost Per Day. Even after that, I’ll still need to use the Vegetable Oil to obtain my fat content from.
Are there any other alternatives that can provide only fat and calories but provide a larger number of calories with a smaller amount of fat? If that’s at all possible, that would potentially seal the issue at hand here.
The other issue is that I’m unsure of the Omega 6 : Omega 3 ratio of Vegetable Oil and whether or not it is optimal. There seems to be plenty of good research around this at the moment; if anyone can comment on a solution that both delivers a higher calorie, lower fat option that is better balanced in the Omega department, that would make this much easier.
In addition to this, I’m open to solutions that solve this issue that aren’t oil: anything at this point that gives me the configuration I’m looking for would be helpful.
Thanks in advance guys, you’re all so wonderful and I love the little family of nutritional geeks we are here.
