    yes!

      Exactly...!

      Is your diet mainly PLANTS and ANIMALS? Or are you using things that are healthy in moderation or used as supplements as dietary staples?

Grok didn't eat oil. Humanity didn't evolve with oils. Oils are a recent creation, and you're not supposed to just douse real food with empty, isolated fat. All oil is processed food. Don't worry about your macronutrients and start eating real food. You're better off eating chicken breast and sweet potatoes than ribeye steak slathered in a giant pool of butter.

        No, you would be better off eating that. You don't speak for everyone. I don't know why you have so much trouble understanding this.

                Chicken + sweet potatoes = 2 real foods.
                Steak + butter = 1 real food, 1 processed food.

                Yes, I am speaking for just about everyone. You can cover your steak in butter if you want, but realize butter is processed food and it's similar to sprinkling sugar on top of your food. It's the same in the sense that it's empty calories with little nutrition. Is grassfed butter better than sugar? Yea, probably, but it's still not ideal as it's not a real, whole food. And if you have fat to lose, it's counterproductive. The human body wasn't designed to eat 500+ calories of butter a day just like it wasn't designed to ingest 50% of its calories from grains and sugars. Just because butter is far better for you than grain and sugar doesn't mean it's good for you versus real, whole foods.
                Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

                  Fats aren't very micronutrient-dense. They're often essentially empty calories just as processed starches are.

                    My mitochondria don't understand that math, professor. Yours don't either. But you can eat the way you eat because your mitochondria are better at creating energy from carbs than mine.

                      I know two good reasons to eat really low carb/high fat:
                      1. As a temporary measure to fix metabolic issues
                      2. As a long-term treatment for epilepsy/nerve damage (ketogenic diet).

                      Otherwise, I tend to agree with Choco and others that more carbs/protein is probably better.

                        Is this the Stupid Corner or something?

                        Micronutrients are not the only reason to eat any particular food and in any case fat-soluble vitamins are just as important for the body as any other vitamin. Modern industrialized societies where people like you have been brainwashed into low-fat dogma have shedloads of women who are actually unable to conceive because their vitamin A status is so low.

                        Actual primitive cultures studied by Weston Price in the 30s, which even then they were on the cusp of modernity, ate anything from 40% to 80% of calories as fat. No-one need eat at the high end, but I doubt anyone should be below the low end of that -- not optimally. Anyone who was would either be eating an excessive amount of carbohydrate or more protein than was good for them -- which, among other things causes further depletion of vitamin A, since it's needed to metabolize it.

                        Yes, animal fats are good for you:

                            Almonds.
                            I wonder why anyone would want to eat a low protein food though? Why not just eat butter or olive oil on vegetables?
