So, on something of an impulse (and for a specific few recipes) I recently bought a small deep fat fryer. We are going to use this once a month or less! I am vaguely paleo in diet but in terms of health and weight loss I am leaning towards a... (more)

I've never tried it. On the basis that what is in nature is best them eating the fat off the side of a piece of steak is going to better for you than anything processed even butter.

I don't like trans-fats, heck I don't even touch the stuff or look at it for that matter, I think it's downright garbage. However, the CW-worshiping crowd that runs the FDA, USDA, and all these crap agencies often group trans-fats along with... (more)

Of course you're referring to the "First they came..." phenomenon. Just because we may agree with a ban on trans-fats, does that make it okay? Because what if they knock on sat-fat's door next? Indeed it is a slippery slope into a nanny/police... (more)

Refined coconut is good for frying and higher temp cooking. It isn't a trans fat unless it says hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated.

PUFAs are what you need for seasoning. They're oxidizable and polymerizable. Saturated fats are actually the worst in terms of seasoning ability because they lack ability to oxidize. Flaxseed is a great oil to use for it, I seasoned my cast iron... (more)

CLA (edited: conjugated linoleic acid) is a trans fat that is found in grass-fed meat and butter. It is a good trans fat. Nothing to be worried about.

Hi all- I am 27, 5'5", now 130lbs. I have fibrocystic breasts. I had my first GYN exam at 18 and was told this then. After that initial GYN exam, I started my self-breast exams, and since then, I have been hyper-aware of the hard, lumpy, dense... (more)

I highly doubt grass-fed meat is contributing to the problem. Conventional meat, maybe. You sure they're not just enlarged adipocytes?

Hopefully everyone knows the difference between the main trans fats, CLA, VA, and elaidic acid, the former two being healthy and the latter being the one that kills. And when someone is concerned about the trans fat content of beef we usually... (more)

I think this may be the same mistake that's made with the reductionist attitudes toward PUFAs or fructose. Eating a bag of chips fried in soybean oil with a cola is quite different from some raw almonds and an apple. It's the supradietary (from an... (more)

I noticed there's about 3.7 grams of trans fat in a stick of butter (the type you would pick up at your average supermarket). Is this significant? Does pastured butter differ?

It's conjugated linoleic acid. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conjugated_linoleic_acid

I wouldn't worry, especially if you use up your oil within a few months. Light and oxygen are more of a concern for me than temperature. When I buy olive oil, I choose always those that come in dark-glass bottles. Then, I store it away from the... (more)

I would go with whatever could conceivably be part of an ancestral diet. That would mean no trans fats. From what I understand, they're pretty much the worst thing you can do to your body. Also: Check this out, it deals with a similar question. (more)
