    A high fat diet is bad because of the hedonic pleasure of eating fat. Our puritan heritage dictates you should suffer. And losing weight should be difficult and not pleasurable.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Fat is fine.

    Mark shows an example of how he eats here: Low Carb Sample Menu | Mark's Daily Apple

    His intake of fat is about 55% of his total calories and his total calories are 2538. He's in his late fifties, already at a good weight, and healthily active.

    While I don't eat added fats (oil, butter, etc.), and I eat lean cuts of meat (generally, with salmon being about my fattiest protein source) I've tracked my personal eating plan, and I easily get 40-55% of my calories from fat. I do eat an avocado almost every day, so that definitely helps. I eat about half the calories Mark does, but I'm female, currently trying to cut weight, and not healthily active.

    So, yes fat is good. In context. Gender, physical ability, physical activity, age, whether trying to gain or lose or maintain weight, body composition are all factors.

    And just as an aside, a tablespoon of Kerrygold butter has 11 gm fat, 0 protein, and 0 carbs. It has 10% of the vitamin A you need based on a 2000 cal/day diet. I'd really rather get my fats from good old nutritive food. But if I wanted if I wanted to gain weight, I guess a big old slab of that on something would be fine.

    Info on the butter from here: Calories in Kerrygold - Butter, Pure Irish | Nutrition Facts and Information

    A shitload of proteins ?
    Be there, done that, it's not a good idea.
    Fat is your new fuel, period.

    I tried it when i had nothing else to eat once Has a hard consistence so you can nibble on it. I actually liked it... but I would prefer a creamy icecream in the summer hehe.
    What on earth?! Take a walk on the wild side.
