    I like fatty cuts of meat such as steak flank slow cooked or crispy bacon, but I'm the same I wouldn't eat a mouthful of steak or pork fat either - unless its pork crackling from a roast

    I thought we were supposed to eat lean meats. The fat parts I used for cooking, braising, etc. On the other hand, I love fatty and oily fish. There's pleanty of good fats to be had. I feel like the lady in the old song with the line "and the greese ran down her chin, oh". And I feel great.

    No, not unless they are not grass fed.

    Depends on how well it's been cooked. If it's soft and unctuous in the middle, it's fine as. If it's chewy in any way, I don't find it palatable at all.

    Were you stamping your feet when you typed that?
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    Was I stamping my feet? Maybe a little. I love bacon. I make it in the oven so there are no "fatty ends" left uncooked. I will eat the little strips of fat from the side of a pork chop. I do no have access to grass fed meats until my own beef on the hoof becomes old enough (this december, I may actually welcome the cold. this year cold=my own farm raised beef) So I guess it's a good thing that I don't mow down the fat.

    Today I took a "shot" of melted coconut oil trying to boost my fat intake. Um... hm... no taste really, WEIRD feeling and hit my stomach like a damn brick. Probably won't do that again.

    Can't stand my bacon too wobbly either.

    Nope, don't like bacon. Cut the big side chunks of fat off of a steak. Can not eat fat straight, but give me nuts or an avocado and I'm good. Years of having fat=butt volcano (undiagnosed celiac and food allergies made my digestive system sensitive to fats and spices) have made me not like it.

    Fat on meat is my favorite part, for me the protein portion on a cut of meat really only exists to weight down the fat and gristle so it doesn't slide all over the plate when I try to cut it.

    I've also always eschewed white meat poultry because there's no fat. Been like this my entire life, so when I went Primal a bit over a year ago, it was like a choir of angels started singing and a bright light shone down on my beaming visage. "I'm home!".

    I also don't fret overmuch about PUFAs or CAFO or any other "non-wholesome" acronym. Sure, it's probably important to minimize to a degree, but I think it's a bit over-blown in these parts. Just like most everything else.

    This ain't a religion (but I still hear the angels when I chaw on a fatty pork chop).
