It really depends on your needs. As long as you have your fats taken care of in other foods, go with whatever you crave. Personally, when I eat lean meat I get fat cravings later, and I end up eating too many nuts or just having to slather butter... (more)

I think it's also helpful to try an elimination diet for FODMAPs. And supplementing with magnesium and betaine HCL - doesn't work for everyone but really helps me.
