    Eating lamb everyday

    Primal Fuel
    I just cooked some grass fed lamb and it was very oily. When I cook grass fed beef, it's not even oily (strip steak).

    So is lamb OK 4-5 times a week?

    Also, when I cooked it...it took a very long time to cook (a thick cut of leg of lamb)...about half an hour. I also cooked it so the outside formed a crust.

    Your question is - what, exactly? Is it ok to eat a lot of lamb fat? Um, yes. We consider that to be health food. Have you read the book?
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    I don't understand your question. There is nothing wrong with eating lamb everyday. I eat it at least 5 times a week (love you fatty NZ lamb arm/loin chops!). I love fatty lamb!

    Well, I have a couple of questions.

    1) Compare to beef, I mean lamb is really really fatty. Is it ok to eat at least 5 times a week?
    2) Cooking lamb takes a long time (pan fry) to get the crust to form (first time cooking it, took 30mins for crust to form). Maybe I should have cut it into thin slices. I can eat beef rare, not sure if lamb can be eaten medium rare (although it taste more delicious when the crust has formed)?

    1) Yes you can. You can eat everyday if you want.
    2) Not sure what cut you are talking about, but I get a nice crust on my chops within 3 minutes, per side. I did one time a Lamb shank and it got a nice crust on all sides within 10 minutes. And yes, you can consume lamb medium rare (unless the cut of lamb requires a long cooking time). I prefer my lamb arm/loin/rib chops more on the rare side though.

    RARE lamb is a must and more nutritious.

    1. Fat is not bad for you. Fat is good for you. As long as its pastured lamb eat as much as you want.
    2. Lamb can be eaten medium rare.

    Look at what Loren Cordain says though:
    In animal studies, including primates, these confounding dietary factors can be completely controlled and atherosclerosis is routinely induced by solely feeding high amounts of saturated fats.

    Eating saturated fat under normal energy conditions promoted higher LDL concentrations. When blood levels of LDL cholesterol molecules rise, LDL molecules tend to become “stuck” in the intima where they undergo oxidation and glycation to become “modified LDL.”

    After that he goes on to say Canola oil is good:
    Numerous animal experiments show that the previous health effects identified with high concentration of erucic acid do not occur at this concentration, and in fact canola oil prevents potentially fatal heart arrhythmias in animal models. There is no credible scientific evidence showing that canola oil is harmful to humans.

    And let say that Cordain is the Pope in the PB/Paleo community, he also believes that Saturated Fat is not a problem in a context of a diet excluding grains, etc (less inflammation). A more scientific answer can be found in Gary Taubes' Good Calories, Bad Calories.
