    Holy crap! I was just playing around entering some cuts of pork into cronometer and pork belly is crazy high in calories! I usually eat 200g meat portions so I entered that in of pork belly to compare and it has 1036 calories!! Add some butter to cook it and that would just about be my entire daily intake as per usual.
    I regularly take two or three days a week and eat almost nothing but bacon and eggs. One pound of bacon and then four eggs. All I need for the day.

But I've just rediscovered lamb, so I'm inspired to experiment with some pork cuts too. Looking at the website of a local grocery store I see that pork loin chops, pork belly, pork cutlets, pork spare ribs and shoulder chops are all available and reasonably priced, and they're free range.
    You can buy it now nitrate & nitrite free, it's so good.

    I love this post. The pig has obviously always been revered by people. I recently did an experiment where I took pork and beef out of my diet for a beef which was all I had eat for a couple months. I switched to salmon and chicken. I wouldn't say I felt like shit, but I definitely feel much better with pork and beef in my diet. I realize this is a personal experiment so there isn't any factual information to offer. Someone close to me just advertised pastured pigs for sale at a great price, I would really love to order half of one if I can get some money put back. The only drawback is they advertise that the pigs have access to "high quality corn" daily. Although the pigs looked very healthy and forage through the woods all day long. Its gotta be much better than the stuff I get at Wal-Mart lol

    I've been eating a LOT of ground pork recently and feeling pretty good. I can get pasture-raised ground pork cheaper than I can the equivilent amount of grass-fed ground beef. That's certainly helped me make up my mind that pork is ok to include.

    Also, can't go wrong with a wonderful pasture-raised pork loin chop cooked to perfection in coconut oil, letting the chops soak up that coconut flavor, topped over a delicious veggie-filled omlete. Now I'm drooling.

    Also, for an interesting way to get your pork AND your beef in one sitting...

    Blend four or five uncooked slices of bacon in blender. Add resultant mush to one pound of ground beef. Cook and fill entire residence with delicious smoked smell that seems to permeate even deeper than cooking bacon on it's own does.

    I've eaten boar. You can't lump it together with pork. Much better. Almost nutty.

    First time I saw a break-down of human adipose. Does that suggest we should be consuming about the same mix of fats? Eg, if our bodies are smart enough to store 18% PUFA, 55% MUFA and only 27% SFA, shouldn't we consume in about that same percentage?

    Pork is my favourite meat. I only make ruminants the cornerstone of my diet as I have been informed that the O3 ratio is superior.

    Pork belly = heaven.

    Oh,yeah. Yummy stuff. They have wild boar meat at my local Sprouts store so I eat that sometimes and make sausage out of it. But I do pretty much give other pork a pass due to their diet.

    I have a naturally raised pork source. I still prefer the boar though. I'll actually be heading to the market at the start of next month to pick up an entire trunkfull of pork, beef and any exotic meats that catch my eye.
