DGA to remove upper limit of dietary fat?


 NLA Part 2 Lifestyle advice 2015
"Recommended macronutrient ranges for adults are 45-65% of energy from carbohydrate, 10-35% from protein, and 20-35% of energy from fat. 
As of this writing, the 2015 DGA had not yet been released, but the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee’s (DGAC) Scientific Report recommended removal of the upper limit for dietary fat to allow greater flexibility, particularly
with regard to reducing intakes of cholesterol-raising (12-16 carbon saturated and trans-unsaturated) fatty acids and refined grains and sugars.
22
In place of these dietary components,
greater emphasis is placed on increasing consumption of foods containing unsaturated fatty
acids, such as nuts and liquid vegetable oils."

"In fact, the amount of meat, poultry, and eggs that the committee recommends — 
26 ounces per week for a 2,000-calorie diet — remains unchanged from 2010."  As of Sept 28 th from THE VERGE.  

From BMJ Nina Teicholz
"the 2015 committee(DGA) recommended extending the current cap on saturated fats, at 10% of calories, based on
1- a review by the AHA and ACC,8 
2-a 2010 NEL review, and 
3-the 2015 committee’s ad hoc selection of seven review papers (see table A on thebmj.com).9
