How many grams of saturated fat can you consume in a day and not exceed 10 percent of calories from saturated fat?

Well, enough so that the number of calories from saturated fat is less than or equal to 10 percent of your total calories consumed. How many calories are you consuming in day? Take 10 percent of that. That's the high end of the number of calories from saturated fat that you can consume in a day. Divide by the number of calories in a gram of fat (9), and you'll have the number of grams of saturated fat you can consume without exceeding 10 percent. Assuming you are on an 1800 calorie diet, you could consume up to 180 calories from saturated fat. Dividing this by 9, you would get 20 grams of saturated fat. However, it is probably more healthful to consume no more than 7% of calories as saturated fat, which is what is allowed on the American Heart Association's Step II diet. This would be 126 calories, or 14 grams of saturated fat a day.
