    A quote to live by (from Michael Eades’s article above):
    “I mean, don’t try to be noble by eating boneless, skinless chicken breasts – instead insert some pats of butter under the skin of a chicken leg and thigh before cooking, and wolf them with your fingers while the fat drips down your arms. Do not trim the fat from your steaks – eat them from the fat side in. If you leave anything on your plate, make sure it’s the meat and not the fat. If you don’t already, learn to love bacon, and don’t cook it ‘til the fat is all gone: eat it wobbly. Wallow in Mangalitsa lardo.”
    Can we have the above quote on the CFATL nutrition page and get rid of that retarded drivel about “lean meat”?

    Michael Eades’ article is not directed towards athletic performance.

    Wow! This is a new one. First they told us that fat made us fat. But now we know better.
    Then they told us that fat gave us heart disease. But now we know better.
    Now you’re insinuating that fat impedes athletic performance? Wow. I’ve never even heard that from mainstream sources.
    Of course, Loren Cordain wasn’t writing for athletic performance either, which is where the dogma of “lean meat” came from. As it turns out, Loren Cordain recommends lean meat because he believes two things that have been disproven:
    1) Calories in equals calories out.
    2) The lipid hypothesis.
    Unless you can point to an study that shows that fat consumption decreases athletic performance, I stand by my suggestion to remove the aforementioned retarded drivel.
    Finally, Dr. Barry Sears himself claimed in Enter The Zone that athletes should intake more fat than sedentary people. So where does that leave us? For some reason, we’re still pretending that all our evidence points to lean meat. Some of you guys are hilarious.

    Look at you throwing hissy fits. Can you point to a study that says fat meat (and not general fat) consumption improves athletic performance over lean meat?

  • Dave Hodges

    I don’t have the burden of proof (even though the evidence is stoutly stacked in my favour) – all of you low-fat promoters do. I think it’s hilarious to post articles from experts that explain why it’s essential to eat plenty of saturated meat fat and then have a nutrition page that encourages people to follow Gerald Ford’s Dietary Guidelines.
    The burden of proof is on the adherents of the “Paleo” diet to demonstrate that low-fat meat (something no Paleolithic man ever ate) is to be preferred from eating normal, fat-laden meat (something that Paleolithic men ate almost daily). Why make a proscription to do something that isn’t backed by any science, especially when said proscription has already been completely debunked? It’s retarded.
    Michael Eades, Mark Sisson, Weston Price, Sally Fallon, Robert Atkinds, Gary Taubes, Robert Mercola, and Tom Naughton have all conducted and compiled massive amounts of studies and research that show that high-fat meat is essential to a good diet. In fact, we are well aware of these studies, many of us having quoted them ourselves. So why do we keep stuttering out “lean meat”?
    But since you ask, I’ll humour you:
    “Can you point to a study that says fat meat (and not general fat) consumption improves athletic performance over lean meat?”
    First, go re-read Enter The Zone and see the numerous health benefits specific to fish oil. Second, you can research the many dangers of PUFA oils (canola, soybean, &c.) which have been documented highly as well. But none of this is really new information. Which is why it’s all the more retarded to insist on “lean meat” when we all know better.
