That's the standard paleo line. AA is to omega-6s as DHA/EPA are to omega-3s. Though to claim that paleos are eating too much omega-6s/AA is a little funny, many paleos are borderline deficient in omega-6s. He's a fan of Ray Peat, so he's... (more)

If I had to choose I'd go with free-range, grass-fed red meat such as beef or bison. Venison (deer) is very lean and hard to get fat with it, so you often need to add fat of some kind (for example when making venison meatballs or sausage), which... (more)

Yes, animal fat helps me sleep while coconut oil destroys my sleep. I cook with pastured lard in the evenings because I'm so sensitive to the coconut oil now, it's crazy. I sleep amazingly well after eating animal fat.

Its kinda nice to see for yourself that you can cover all the RDA's eating paleo if you wish. But, dig a little deeper into that rabbit hole and you find yourself questioning the RDA scheme validity altogether.
