    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?

    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
