Whats the threshold for PUFA? I keep seeing percentages (3-6%) of calories per day, but has anybody calculated it down to grams per day? That seems way easier to keep track of.
If you're cutting highly-refined seed oils from your diet, you'd be hard-pressed to overdo PUFAs, in my opinion. If you're worried about the 3-6% mark, think of it this way: you'd have to eat 50% of your calories as lard or avocados (both approximately 10% PUFA by calories) to hit 5%. You're also not consuming damaged PUFAs on a paleo diet since most of our PUFAs aren't damaged in whole food form and many come along with natural antioxidants that provide some level of protection.
Paleolithic folks were eating more than grass-fed beef with minimal PUFAs, that's for sure.
