Cravings really don't mean anything. There's a whole bunch of pseudo-scientific ideas around the ideas that cravings indicate nutritional deficiencies, not supported by real science though.

It sounds alright to me. As long as you are getting enough calories it ought to be fine. In some sense you can claim to be more paleo than most of us, because these fats are processed in the sense that they are extracted from a whole food.

It depends on your needs and goals. If you feel sated by fat from animals, and if you're getting at least 50% of your calories from fat, then that's enough. If you need to tweak your macronutrient ratios to achieve some goal, e.g., break a stall... (more)
