A limited amount of fat is needed by the body. Fat intake should be restricted because of high calorie content and its association with the increased risk of chronic diseases. CAUTION: Recommended fat intake is based on total calories consumed, other physical factors, and individual activity levels. The recommendation is 30% of total calories. Eating foods containing greater than 30 grams of fat per serving daily may contribute to chronic health problems.
