    Question Bacon not so great?

    Simple question: if bacon has high omega-6 content, why does Mark tout it so much?

    Why do you think bacon is high in O-6? Its O-6/O-3 ratio might be lousy but the absolute levels are not enough to cause concern

    Mark doesn't tout it nearly as much as we do, and he's gone out of his way to exclaim that PB is not permission to live on bacon.

    That said, my steaks were wrapped in bacon last night and my pistachio encrusted zucchinis were fried in bacon fat and their was a lot of bacon in the dinner salad.

    I think of bacon as the Primal food mascot - to me it just epitomizes the anti-CW stance here at MDA and reminds me that fat is not to be feared! It's not something I eat every day.

    Stats as of 3/1/12:
    5'10" female, 38 y/o
    Currently 140 lbs., approx 25% body fat
    WEIGHT GOAL: lose a bit more body fat and tighten up the rear end...basically, I want to look great naked. Everywhere else is looking great, but my ass/hips/thighs are being a bit stubborn. TMI?
    DAILY MACRO TARGETS: Cal: 1,857. Protein: 100g (400cal). Carb: 75g (300cal). Fat: 128g (1156cal).
    EXERCISE GOAL: incorporate 2-3 strength training sessions and 1 sprint session per week.

    Stop resisting and accept bacon as your lord and saviour. It's easy to do and will reward you for a lifetime.

    I've never seen the big deal about bacon. I only like it with burgers.

    if you get qaulity raised uncured bacon... it's no worse than any other meat. if you buy the cheapest precooked ocsar meyer nitrate infused bacon you can find... probably not that great for you.

    I don't know about that, the salt is a bit questionable! But that is the only reason its so dam good, trust me Ive tried bacon without salt and it tastes worse than plain ham!

    I like bacon, but have gone without so much as seeing it for almost a month now. Not by choice but it was definitely out of mind... I shall purchase some soon... it used to literally be in everything I made so I guess I just over did it .
