    I've been doing this for over a year and I'm beginning to wonder if they high omega-6 PUFA content of bacon fat is what's holding my total and LDL cholesterol high. I get some decent quality bacon from a southeastern whole/organic food chain (Earthfare, if you're in the area), but I don't know if the two rather thick slices a day I'm eating with the eggs should be replaced with something like beef or fish. I just started taking fish oil so I'm hoping that helps.

    Mmmmm. Love bacon. I get mine from an Amish farmer or Wellness Meats (no nitrates or sugar). Don't eat it every day and not necessarily for breakfast.

    Eggs every day, usually as a vegetable omelette. Never get tired of them. Sometimes add bacon or cheese as well.

    I don't do breakfast, so I have my eggs for lunch. I love them. I usually have some sort of omelet.

    Bacon disgusts me. Eggs I could eat every day though. And probably do.

    I have my own chickens as well. I cannot stand the taste of store/ restaurant eggs. Bacon... Pufas. Dunno. I will have my own bacon this fall and intend to have it processed without nitrates, etc.
    The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

    I like it because it tastes good. That said, I recall seeing a shirt that said, "Bacon is meat candy" and that is how I treat it. I know it is not optimal so I eat it as a treat. I get it from a specialty shop and it is basically just smoked pork belly (smoked on site) which they then slice to order. I say 'basically' because they have different varieties which are spiced differently. Yesterday I had 3 slices of jalapeno bacon - pork belly, rubbed with pureed jalapenos before/after being smoked.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    At the risk of agreeing with Derpy, I'm agreeing with Derpy. I don't eat bacon at all or any other pork.

    I also think high bacon consumption is holding a lot of PBers back from reaching their weight loss goals.

    This is a sensible attitude. Bacon is not and is never going to be a health food. I think there is a lot of self deception about that around here.

    Bacon made from pastured pork belly really is just fine IMO. I gotta admit that all the scientific reasoning in the world that we should concentrate on ruminants for our meat can't convince me that eating pig and fowl is inherently suboptimal. I love good BBQ and for me pork will always be king of the meats for the smoker.

    All that said I still only get around to cooking up bacon about once a week. So yeah, usually I'm in the eggs and eggs club. I'm far more likely to throw a whole pork shoulder on the smoker and eat pulled pork for days on end

    Damn, I wasn't expecting all this bacon negativity!

    My weightloss has been going fine, my LDL was a tad high after two months paleo (however, it was during the holidays when my diet wasn't exactly clean, ate quite a few bad carbs for about 3 week prior to it), could bacon be the cause? if so, why? I guess I could substitute it with sausage or chorizo and only have it two or three times a week.
