I have read through all the questions on this topic and I am afraid I am missing something. If I put my breakfast into Fitday it tell me this:
400 calories: total fat 34.6g (75%) saturated 19.8 (42%) polyunsat 5.6 (12%) monounsat 4.8 (10%)
How can I determine what is the o3:6 ratio?
Why does the subtotal of the specific fats total 30.0, what is the other 4.6g?
BTW: the breakfast consisted of .5 cup of full-fat kefir and some raw coconut meat. I also figured in 3 tsp supplement of fish oil as well.
Looks like you are only seeing the macronutrient profile option in fitday. There are other charts available with other breakdowns. One of them lists a breakdown of the vitamins and minerals as well, like magnesium, calcium, etc. Included in that breakdown is omega 6 and omega 3 intake. Like others have said, such a breakdown would not be perfectly accurate, but it can give you an idea. Basically, find the right chart option, and fitday will tell you both 3 and 6 intake. It will not do the ratio for you but you can probably do that math for yourself once you have the 2 totals.
If you go to nutritiondata.com and search for the ingredients that made up your breakfast, you can see how much omega 3 and omega 6 you got. The information is located at the bottom of the page for each particular food (but not for some foods, such as caribou bone marrow).
Not many paleo products are high in omega 6, if they are naturally raised. However, chicken (especially with skin) and pork are high in omega 6, regardless. I generally eat a low omega 6 diet, and rarely eat chicken, pork, or olive oil.
I work around this by simply avoiding as much omega-6 as I can
This has been shown to healthier than high but balanced.
I eat omega 3 rich fish twice a week and no longer supplement O3, since my O6 is so low.
The 3:6 ratio depends on how the products are produced, the soil from where it origin. If the cow's have been raised on natural grass or wheat-pellet etc. Very hard to tell what ratio your breakfast is landing on.
