If you put "lean" in front of "meat" then people will be less terrified. Robb endorses eating fatty meat, it seems to be a rhetorical thing. He has also said that he thinks that if people are eating commercial meats to choose leaner cuts to... (more)

Okay, I think there is a little bit of confusion here about hydrogenated fats and the oxidization of fats. Exposing an oil or fat / lipid to heat can cause it to oxidize, depending on the heat and the fat. Mono-saturated and poly-saturated fats... (more)

Well, I eat around 3500 calories a day. At 60-70% fat that's 2100-2450 calories from fat. Most of that is from eggs, butter, meat, and coconut. So I'm probably getting 100-150g from saturated just like you. I am not the slightest bit worried... (more)

I don't think there's an "optimal" amount, since intake of SFA isn't essential. You need to eat omega 3 and omega 6 (of the right forms!) but you don't need to eat saturated fat at all. Articles like this one might give the impression otherwise... (more)
