  • Human fat tissue omega 6 to 3?

    hey guys, i am starting intermittent fasting this week just to see how I feel on it. The other day i had a thought though. Different meats have different omega 6 to 3 ratios in the fat, so just out of curiosity what ratio does human adipose tissue have, if any?

    I was under the impression that stored body fat is saturated, not a PUFA.
    I wish I liked to eat liver.

      So was I, but even grass fed meats contain some PUFA in them so i was wondering if it was the same for human adipose tissue?

          I wonder if google does. This might not have the answer but it's the first thing that came up for me in google.

            Looking to add some..."exotic" meat to your diet?

              Haha , when you intermittent fast your body uses your fat stores for fuel and it is the same using your own fat stores for calories as when you eat fat and burn it for energy, so i was just wondering if human fat that we burn has an omega 3 to 6 ratio :P.

                isn't it the consumption/storage of these omegas that causes issues? not the burning?

                or are you wanting to put the lotion in the basket?
                As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

                  yea that is what i was trying figure out if there is a difference between when we eat fat and our body breaks it down into energy, and when our body uses our fat stores and breaks it down into energy.

                    Avoid grain-fed humans to be on the safe side. Or if that's tricky supplement with cod liver oil.

                      I don't worry about my omega 3's anymore and im a much healthier person. Dr.Greg ellis has a good piece on this.

                        It's supposed to be mostly saturated and monounsaturated. If you want to see how diet and skew how fats are stored, look at a pig. A CAFO pig fed grains has huge amounts of stored polyunsaturated fat. Pigs fed coconut feed have next to none and more more closely resemble ruminant meat. On a diet of red meat, fruits and starches, you'll have very little stored PUFA. On a diet of poultry, fish, nuts, seed/legume oils and grains, you'll have lots of stored PUFA. Guess which is healthier?
                        Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

                          Pig anatomy is really close to human anatomy. Perhaps our fatty acid breakdown is similar to theirs.

                          Is your question along the lines of wondering if we store our own fat in the same forms that it is best for us to consume it?

                            Yes that is exactly what i was wondering, i was thinking surely our own stored fat is the best form of fat for our bodies to break down?

                            and to chocotaco, that is a good point. I was wondering if consuming a paleo diet would change the fatty acids in our adipose tissue just like it does to animals
