Do any of you confront the "Cordain Dilemna" when trying to explain the role of saturated fat in your paleo diet?
Loren gets a lot of flack for having advocated lean meat back when he first wrote his book. I've thought (along with Robb Wolf) that this was unfair, because he was talking about the saturated fat that most Westerners had access to, i.e. from grain-fed animals. And, in that case, he was/is right. Avoiding that Omega-6 dense fat is probably a good idea. But it does make explaining paleo that much harder. It would be nice if I could just say, "Eat saturated fat. It's good for you!" But for the overwhelming number of people who will get their saturated fat from industrial, grain-fed animals, that is actually bad advice.
Advocating wild-caught seafood is easy enough to explain, but a lot of people really aren't even familiar with the concept of grass-fed beef.
Anyone else confront this challenge? How do you explain this in simple terms?
