    But I don't LIKE meat fat!

    Um hello? Anyone else out there that doesn't get all slobbery over a chunk of meat fat? Honestly, this is going to sound mean, but DONT take it that way . . . when I see ya'll talking about eating straight fat I get repulsed. NOT because you are eating it and enjoying it, but because I picture myself eating it and I hate the taste and texture of animal fat. I'm talking about the big thick pieces of fat on the side of a steak- not the marbling on the inside of a roast. I tried to eat a piece today and almost yacked. Ugh.

    Yeah, unless it's all crisped up or something, forget it.

    Chicken wing skin = delicious, but wobbly steak or pork fat,
    forget it.

    I'm with you sister.

    Oh thank god. I honestly was starting to think I was ALONE. Woo.

    I do have to say, I put "country rib cut" on my salad today, definitely a fatty cut. Anyway, it tasted VERY good. The last three days I've been finishing up "super lean turkey cutlets" and man the flavor difference of the meats. Whew. On the sad side... I can hardly eat any amounts. I would say the meat was about 6 oz and the spinach/romaine mix maybe a cup or two. Didn't even finish half and I'm full. Damnit.

    No, you're not the only one. A little fat on the edge of a pork chop isn't terrible, but big chunks of beef fat or chicken skin give me the shkeeves. I also like hollandaise and aiole which are basically fat, but not chewy.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    More fat for me.

    I can't honestly say it bothers me personally.

    To each their own though. I can crisp up some good bacon, pork belly, or chicken/goose skin if that's more up your ally though.

    Fat with meat=good. But plain fat is nasty, unless it has been crisped up.

    I'm picky when it comes to my meat fat. It HAS to be grass fed, and only certain cuts appeal to me. For some reason, different cuts seem to have different texture fats hanging on.
    I try to use alternative fats like coconut and grass fed dairy instead.

    The fatty part in the center of a ribeye tastes pretty amazing to me. Or almost anything sauteed (but not swimming) in lard.
    I just can't have extra virgin coconut oil straight on its own. It's somehow too greasy, if that makes any sense.

    I like it but honestly I'd rather get more bang from my nutritional buck elsewhere. I've never really been a fan of bacon and I don't know why people go gaga for it. Roasted pork with skin on >>>> bacon for me any day.
