Saturated Fat from beef?
« on: May 29, 2011, 01:35:26 pm »
How good is the saturated fat from grass fed beef? I am used to eating the chuck roast cut, which has a lot of fat. But, it gets to the point where the chuck roast is so much fat and not enough meat. I get a lot of fat already though, from coconuts, eggs, sometimes avocados, (and cream). But to add the fat that comes from chuck roast, seems like and feels like an awful lot of fat. So i am considering getting a more expensive cut that has less fat, specifically the sirloin cut. This cut is very lean with basically no significant amounts of fat.


What's your take on saturated fat from beef? Maybe the fat is addicting or something because I'm having a difficult time deciding whether to stop getting the chuck roast cut and to start getting a more lean cut with more meat.

Raw saturated fat from grassfed beef/meats I find is more healthy for me than other kinds of fat like raw avocado, coconuts, eggs or cream.

It's not 100% saturated - 60% at most. The rest is monounsaturated + a little bit of polyunsaturated.

One of the best.  Most awesome.  One of my favorite staple foods.

Saturated Fats = Good
Mono/poly fats = not so good

Sat fats regulate hormones and the skin really mainly absorbs only Sat Fats and they are less prone to oxidation.

  Absolute rubbish. PUFAs/MFAs are fine as long as they are unprocessed and palaeo.
