I don't claim low fat. I just don't claim high fat. If you're asking me which is a better source of energy per calorie - fat or carbs - I'm going to tell you carbs. That doesn't mean I think fat should be very low.

Fruits and starches store as saturated and omega 9 monounsaturated fats in tissues. Generally, paleo promotes a higher fat intake and a lower carb intake. A diet rich in fruits, starches and lean meats will naturally be much lower in PUFA than the classic paleo macronutrient spread because caloric surpluses in the fruits and starches will promote more saturated tissues in general (unless, say, one is doing a high fat diet composed solely of red meat, coconut and full fat dairy while avoiding poultry, pork, nuts and eggs, which is a rarity).
