4 carbs a day instead of 300. 70 grams of protein instead of 30, and I routinely go up to 120.

What's "moderate" anyway

That's an excellent point and one which escapes most people in that the amount of fat one consumes is relative to what one believes is "normal." Given the low fat craze of the past 40 years or so, we've become conditioned to believe that fat is bad and lower is better. Our normal fat threshold is much lower, so any fat above that amount is considered "high" fat. We need a newer normal and current research and clinical experiences backs that.
