Are there any studies on the body's transition to saturated fat? Someone on here mentioned that the body replaces PUFA, and possibly trans fats, with saturated fat where saturated fat should ideally be.

Ketogenic diets don't have to be saturated fats. In fact animal fat is generally less than 50% saturated anyway. Bacon fat is very close in fatty acid composition to breast milk. Avocado, olive, and macadamia all have high mono omega-9. But... (more)

Coconut oil and palm oil are not 100% saturated (palm oil definitely isn't). Coconut oil has about 3% unsaturated fats. Palm oil is like 40% monounsaturated and 10% polyunsaturated, if I remember correctly. Those are the fats being hydrogenated.... (more)

How much is saturated and unsaturated (MUFA and PUFA)? Some sources claim that saturated fat prevails, but other say that unsaturated does (MUFA).

I don't think it's a fat adaption thing if you've been eating paleo for a couple years. It may relate to bile production. Have you had any blood work done? You may have elevated liver enzymes or bilirubin.

I think the proper formula is inflammation + saturated fat = heart disease. And inflammation is a result of some modern foods such as some grains and milled flour, as well as soybean oil, trans fats and other foods.

Yes, animal fat helps me sleep while coconut oil destroys my sleep. I cook with pastured lard in the evenings because I'm so sensitive to the coconut oil now, it's crazy. I sleep amazingly well after eating animal fat.

you can save the scraps, freezing them until you have a decent bag of them, and then render them into tallow (low heat crock pot). Or throw them into the stock pot. Or just eat it.

I'm a fan of diversifying one's fat intake. Coconut, animal fats, butter, palm, olive, etc??? Coconut does come across as the paleo panacea, but it's just a good fat, one of many.
