I've just finished reading 'the paleo diet for athletes' by prof Loren Cordain, in which he explains saturated fat is the bad artery clogging fat and he also explains how our ancestors ate very little saturated fat in comparison to mono and poly unsaturated fats.
The information read here conflicted with what I had read in the paleo solution, in which said some forms of saturated fats are good, but it doesn't really explain why.
Is there new evidence that saturated fats are good, or is it certain types of saturated fats that are good and others still should be avoided?
Basically what is the deal with saturated fat? I have been indulging in as much butter, full fat cream and particually eggs as I see fit but after reading what Cordain has said im slightly questioning my food choices and feel a bit like im limiting my self again.
What is the latest research saying? is saturated fat good or bad? and why is coconut oil the mcdaddy of all saturated fat's?
I muchly appreciate your answers, thanks.
