If I had an unbalanced meal of only oatmaeal and the DIT was 10%.... would it still be 10% if you had oats and tuna? Or 20%? And what if you also had a Tbsp of flax oil? Is the percentage always 10% no matter what you eat?

NO!

I was giving typical percentages for your entire diet. I.E. if you metabolize 3000 calories in a day, typically, 10% of that will come from DIT. However, this can greatly vary depending on the type of foods you eat.

As stated, proteins and carbs have much higher DITs than fats. The situation gets even more complicated, when considering that certain fats have higher DITs than others. So this is what I am trying to investigate. What foods optimize DIT.
