When someone is eating 4 fat blocks to every 1 protein block, the 1.5g fat blocks just don't really work anymore.
This isnt even discussed in the book. That makes sense though, I forgot that 1.5g fat was assumed from protein. But, thats probably cause most are using it to lose weight and are not athletes.

Thanks for seemingly always being on top of it.
