What Effect Does the Serving Size of C60 Have on Your Daily Fat Intake?
Ever look at those serving sizes and wonder, “How much of this stuff should I be taking?”
Well, that’s a great question to be asking. And the short answer, in almost every case, is that smaller doses are better. You may be getting great results from other products, but let’s keep in mind that while you are getting results, you do have to pay attention to your daily fat intake.
So, let’s take a look at C60 and the various oils it comes in and the recommended serving sizes from the various manufacturers and what the dietary experts say is the best daily dose.
Most of the manufacturers of C60 say you should take one or two teaspoons of their product every day. The products come in various oils, including Sunflower, Olive, Avocado and Coconut oil. Some say you should take it all in the morning, some say once in the morning and once at night.
Greska’s Carbon-60 Organic Sunflower Oil is super concentrated because our proprietary process packs in single molecules of C-60 that are not only dissolved in a solution but you get even more Carbon-60 as our formula is also a colloidal suspension. And we do this without using any toxic solvents! So, we recommend a portion size of just 2/3 (two-thirds) ml (2/3 dropperful) or one-eighth (1/8) of a teaspoon which is just a little more than half the pipette that comes with the bottle. And, Greska’s recommends taking the product just once a day in the morning.
Based on a 2,000-calorie diet, you can have up to 45 to 75 total grams of fat, of which is 15 grams (3 teaspoons) of saturated fat per day. Around one-third of the fat in bacon is saturated, which can raise your “bad” cholesterol. Having just one slice of bacon adds a little more than 1 gram of saturated fat to your diet.
Since olive oil is the most common delivery method among most of the manufacturers of C-60, let’s start there.
Many studies have expounded on the health benefits of olive oil. Just Google it and you’ll have enough reading material to cure even the most diehard of insomniacs.
So, it’s a given that olive oil is pretty good for us. But how much should you take daily? That depends on how much fat you want or need in your diet.
Let’s assume you consume a daily 2000 calorie diet. No more than 400 to 700 of those calories should come from fats, even the good ones. So that’s about 44 to 78 grams of fat per day. That equates to about 9 to 15 teaspoons per day. Of those, only 10 percent should come from saturated fats such as butter. This leaves about 200 to 500 calories or 25 to 56 grams from other healthy fats such as mono- and polyunsaturated fats, MUFA and PUFA, respectively.
Just one teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil contains 4.57 grams of fat.
Just one teaspoon of Avocado oil contains 4.5 grams of fat.
Just one teaspoon of Coconut oil contains 4.5 grams of fat.
Just one teaspoon of Sunflower oil contains 4.5 grams of fat.
Most studies indicate you should take no more than two tablespoons of saturated fats daily. According to the <a href=” http://www.heart.org/en/healthy-living/healthy-eating/eat-smart/fats/saturated-fats” target=”new”>American Heart Association</a>, fat consumption more than 35 percent of your caloric intake can significantly increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and heart attack.
So, by taking just one teaspoon of any of these oils, you are using a 10th of your daily recommended intake of saturated fat.
Now you have to think about what else you are eating during the day. Let’s see how other foods and their fat and calorie content affect your day.
A single serving of cheddar cheese (1 ounce) provides 115 calories, 7 grams of protein and 9.6 grams of fat.
A single serving of most snack crisps or chips is about one ounce or 16 chips. A single serving of potato chips provides 151 calories and 9.6 grams of fat. And who among us can eat just 16 chips.
A “pat” of butter—the pre-cut serving size that you find at many restaurants (listed on the label)—may only provide 36 calories and 4 grams of fat. But the more common serving size of butter, one tablespoon, provides 162 calories and 12 grams of fat.
A serving of almonds has 162 calories, and 14.1 grams of fat.
A single serving, or just two tablespoons, of guacamole contains 50 calories, 4.5 grams of fat. Just one half of an avocado has 161 calories and 14.75 grams of fat.
One cup of whole milk provides 149 calories, 8 grams of protein, 12 grams of carbohydrate, 12 grams of sugar, 8 grams of total fat and 5 grams of saturated fat.
One cup of 1 percent milk provides 102 calories, 8 grams of protein, 12 grams of carbohydrate, 13 grams of sugar, 2 grams of saturated fat and 2 grams of fat.
One cup of non-fat milk provides 83 calories and .2 grams of fat.
One cup of half-and-half provides 315 calories, 7 grams of protein, 10 grams of carbohydrate, 10 grams of sugar, 17 grams of saturated fat and 28 grams of total fat. Keep in mind, however, that a single serving of half and half is just one tablespoon which provides only 20 calories
Now, let’s say you want to splurge a little. Treat yourself to some guac and chips, or maybe a ham sandwich and a few Oreo cookies. What does that look like in regards to your daily intake of fat? Let’s have a look.
One slice of a commercially-packaged white or whole-wheat bread has about 1 gram of fat. And you’ll need two of those to make a sandwich.
One slice of ham luncheon meat provides 50 calories and 2.9 grams of fat
Those Oreo cookies? They’ll set you back 160 calories and 7 grams of fat. In just three cookies.
Even two tablespoons of raspberry Vinaigrette dressing has 60 calories and 4 grams of fat.
The guac and chips will ding you significantly in the calorie and fat department. With just 7 to 12 chips and two tablespoons of guacamole, you accrue 190 calories and 11.5 grams of fat. Now, c’mon, are you really going to just eat 12 chips?
Now, let’s go really crazy with our snacking and look at these fat intake numbers.
A single slice of cheese pizza packs a whopping 274 calories and 10 grams of fat.
Those chicken nuggets you get, just four of those have 193 calories and 13 grams of fat.
A tostada with chicken and guacamole has 345 calories and 15.4 grams of fat.
And a single cup of vanilla ice cream has 273 calories and 14.5 grams of fat.
Don’t be discouraged when you look at these nutritional facts about fat intake. We’ve given you the fat content of these foods and oils, so you can make informed, healthy choices. So, you can remember to factor in dosage and fat intake the next time you are making choices about your dietary intake.
Remember, we’re only discussing the fat content of these foods. There are other health benefits to many foods that we did not address in this blog. And darn it! Sometimes having that ice cream is worth every gram of fat! So, we’re not telling you any of these things are bad. On the contrary, we just want you to be aware so that you will be able to make informed choices when it comes to making decisions about your fat intake.
One last note: if you are doubling your dosage or taking mega-doses of C-60, that could have a significant effect on your recommended daily allowances.
