I believe it to be 70 grams for women daily and 90 grams for men ,calories is 2000 for women and 2500 for men so to lose weight I suppose 1800 is a good amount to stick to you would lose 5 to 6 pounds a month on average the slower the better chance of keeping the weight off too good luck

It depends on how many calories you consume in a day. In general, 20%-35% of your daily calories should come from fat.

If you eat 1800 calories a day, 360-630 calories should come from fat.
Since there are 9 calories in 1 gram of fat, this means you can have 40-70 grams of fat.

That is a good question.  If you don't find the answer here, you may want to ask a dietitian.  Or call your doctors office and ask a nurse, she should be able to tell you.  I am a medical assistant and I don't know the answer to this question.  I would say it depends on your height and weight and diet.  If you call a local gym they some times have people there too that may know who can maybe tell you or even give you your first visit or consultation for free.  I am sorry I am not much help.  That is just my advice.  Good luck.

The amount of fat any person should be eating daily is going to depend on what kind of diet they are on.

There are diets like the atkins diet or CKD diet where you limit your carb intake and have a high amount of fat intake and moderate protein intake.

Then there are diet splits that are 40% protein, 30% carb, 30% fat.

Or.... 33% protein, 33% carb, 33% fat...

There are many variations, so there is no 1 correct answer.

I can tell you that you will want to limit your saturated fat intake, however there is nothing inherently wrong with fat, fat is actually good for you in the unsaturated variety from things such as nuts, avocados, peanut butter, flax seed oil, etc...

Keep in mind when eating your fats they are very calorie dense so it is very easy to overeat them if you're not careful.

It would be a good idea to further educate yourself on what exactly you need to learn to maintain a healthy diet or how to lose weight quickly/easily if you're worried about fat, because its more than just that.

My best friend has been averaging over 1lb per day doing the atkins diet, but she weights a lot more than you do so I'm not sure if the atkins will work that quick for you. If you are just trying to fit into the dress I would suggest a liquid diet or body cleanse will probably gain the weight back afterwards but you will fit into the dress. I suggest you Atkins diet foods through this you get more results about what can you eat on the Atkins diet .

Hi, according to the American Heart Association, in order
for an adult to stay healthy, he/she should consume fewer than 20% of fat and
he/she should eat no more than 35% daily. You can check the following link to
calculate how many fat grams are good for you:
I hope that my answer is helpful to you.

Nobody can give a really definitive answer.

It's known that vegetarians are usually healthier than people who eat meat.  A vegetarian's dietary fat intake is usually about 31% of calories, but many think that's probably near the maximum for optimal health.  The UK Dept. Of health recommends that fat shouldn't comprise more than 33% of one's diet (usually no more than 70g a day).

On the other hand, a diet that is less than 15% fat (about 30g per day for most people) is probably bad for most people.  Fat is in itself a vital organ.  It acts as a store for certain vitamins, it insulates the body, it is an incredibly important sheath and insulator around our nerves, and it is part of the chemistry balance of the entire body.  Fat is necessary for optimal brain function and important for healthy skin.

Use this calculator to get a customised recommendation for your maximum daily fat intake.

Instead of worrying about quantity, you might want to think quality.  Make sure most of your fat intake is unprocessed and mostly vegetarian.

A diet exceeding no more than 30-35% of your total calories per day is normal for a person on a 2000 calorie diet. Keep in mind though that monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are best (olive oil, etc.) Try to limit saturated fats in the diet and avoid trans fat at all costs!
