Animal Fat - To eat or not eat?

Cut the covering fat off ALL meat

God told the Israelites not to eat animal covering fat - This is where an animal stores its toxins. This fat also contains less STEARIC ACID (C18:0), LINOLEIC ACID (C18:2) and total PUFA.  Unlike other dietary saturated fats, which increase blood LDL cholesterol,  STEARIC ACID has a neutral effect; (Bonanome & Grundy, 1988)

Consuming animal covering fat:

•  Interferes with Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)

•  Interferes with INSULIN

•  Makes platelets sticky

Marbling Fat

Fat types in marbling fat  (according to USDA nutrient database, presumeably from CAFO animals):

Meat Details SATURATED MONOUNSATURATED OLYUNSATURATED

Boneless beef, chuck eye roast

America's Beef Roast, separable lean only, cooked/roasted, trimmed to 0" fat

Pork, fresh, loin, tenderloin

Grain-fed animals contain more marbling (intramuscular) fat than grass-fed animals

Marbling fat contains desired STEARIC ACID in higher amounts than the covering fat

Eat organic and grass-fed meat

 Choose meat from biblically-defined “clean” animals - unless you are sure that your meat is from animals that have not eaten toxins (i.e. it is organic)

Meat from grass-fed animals or birds  - Omega 3 ALPHA-LINOLENIC ACID (ALA) Fat -Texas longhorn beef is known for its higher omega-3 fat content, due to the cattle being mainly grass-fed. Grass-fed beef generally contains 2-4 times as much omega-3 as its grain-fed counterparts, since 60% of fats in grass are omega-3. However, most cattle, chickens and pigs are “finished”on a predominantly grain diet, rich in omega-6.

-  Grass eaten by animals needs to be organic - most toxic contaminants are stored in fat

•  Free of agricultural chemicals

•  Free of antibiotics, growth hormones and other drugs

Chicken/Turkey Skin

Surprisingly, the skin on a chicken (or turkey) thigh or leg doesn't make much difference to the amount of calories consumed from fat (~ 56% compared to 47%).
