    How do you feel about FAT

    Primal Fuel
    There has been many posts about carbs, but how do you guys feel about FAT.

    Stuffing yourself with coconut cream and meat fat/bacon.

    VS.

    Getting fat from avocados, fish, olive oil, eating only lean meats.

    Or somewhere in between?

    You want 95% of your fat intake to be saturated fat. Not going to get that from plant sources.

    I feel fine about it, seem to be healthier from increased saturated fat. The key is to get the carbs out............

    I've added some coconut oil to my diet but other than that I haven't added much fat to my diet. I didn't eat low fat before, but I'm not into eating high fat either. I don't like fatty, greasy foods like bacon. Trying to eat chicken skin, or the fat on a steak, grosses me out. I don't limit my fat but I'm not going to force myself to eat fat I don't want, either.

    I'm personally finding that maximising saturated fat and omega 3 is the way to go.
    F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

    I don't really worry about it in any way, honestly.

    I am probably closer to the second in that category. Even so, I manage about 45% calories from fat.

    I don't worry either. Similar intake for me.
