Background: I was a strict vegetarian for the last 10 years. Recently added meat back in. My family has a history of heart disease/attacks. Dad has had 3. I have an extremely hard time losing weight and so I'm trying Primal to hopefully start dropping the pounds. I know what I've read, but my brain has a hard time processing that I should eat more fat. I didn't eat butter for those 1o years, but now I switched back to butter and don't eat margarine at all. I eat olive oil, avocados and nuts, but I'm talking coconut oil, fats on meats, bacon grease etc, because I've been told for so long that causes heart attacks. Did any of you have problems with that? Have any of you found that adding more fat in honestly makes you lose weight? On a typical day, what kind of fats do you eat? (specific examples and amounts if possible).
