    I didn't see your diet, can you repost it?

    Working from a basic 2,000cal per day, I would be looking at around 400-500 cals of that coming from healthy fats. This works out at 44-55g fat and would comprise around 25% of your total daily calories. I personally wouldn't really go above 80g if you are prone to developing non-alcoholic fatty liver.

    • Also Bill, do you use TRT/AAS or on any medications at all? If so they can often have a big effect on liver values, lipids, BP etc.

      As I mentioned before, get stuck into the coconut oil. Choose a virgin cold pressed type, organic if possible.

          • On your high carb day (800-1,000g) personally I would probably lower that a little, and I would look at bringing the fat down to 80g or less a day. I'd also question the 6,000cal cheat day, just seems to me like your calories will be negating the daily cardio you are doing. Your calories in general seem quite high for an older man whose metabolism is naturally going to be slightly slower, even more so taking into account your slight thyroid issue.

            Other than that keep up the good work, what I have said are merely suggestions Bill. Good luck with your training and goals

              Cod liver oil is actually pretty low in omega 3 content, so it wouldn’t be a suitable option to use as a source omega 3 source. It’s primarily comprised of Vitamin A & D. It’s the DHA and EPA content of omega 3 that you are after, and simply put the cod liver oil does not contain them in any significant amounts.
