Anyone find eating a lot of fatty chicken (chicken w/ skin on) leading to poor skin health or decreased overall well being? I feel like a lot of people avoid poultry and pork here because a lot of people fear the O6 oil content in it.
However, my family and I actually cook using a lot of chicken fat and haven't noticed any downsides. In fact, I would say my skin and nails looks way better than they ever had, and if the appearance of skin and nails are strongly linked to health, which i firmly believe they are, then are we unnecessarily afraid of chicken and pork?
I don't think the improvement to skin is due to an overall higher fat consumption - i've tracked my daily intake of fat, and it's remained relatively steady for the past year.(my macronutrient profile has remained steady as well of ~35/45/20 -FCP) But I've definitely switched up the types of fats from butter, to lard, and now chicken fat.
looking forward to reading your responses!
