I think this is the right board for a question like this

I see that we are supposed to keep our fat intake to under 25 percent of our diet. My question is how do you figure out the fat percentages in food? Many years ago, I never ate anything that had more than 3 grams of fat per 100 calories. Does this formula still hold true? Or is it more like 2.5 grams per hundred calories to keep under 25 percent? As you can see, I'm really confused I really don't want to just add up the amount of fat I eat in a day, and figure it on that. I want to keep on top of my fat intake all through the day. I'm super-sensitive to fat, but I also realize I need some to be healthy. Anyway, any help in figuring out a simple formula would be much appreciated

Thanks
