  1. 7%
  2. 20%
  3. 65%
  4. 40%

ANSWER: d. 40%

Ray & Terry recommend that 20-40% of your daily calories come from healthy fats, depending on your individually-appropriate percentages of protein and carbs. A clearer understanding of inflammation and the types of fats have contributed to an evolution in thinking. What really matters is the type of fat you eat.
