I believe saturated fat is necessary for proper hormone production (testosterone). I heard somewhere that as long as a lot of saturated fat isn't consumed with a lot of sugars its totally okay. I consume 20-22 g sat fats every day. Hopefully someone can chime in and elaborateTraining log:

Your first point is incorrect as there is no evidence that saturated fat/cholesterol consumption increases serum cholesterol.

Well thank you for correcting me. I know I saw it somewhere on this forum, I am not trying to be in the business of spreading false information. Could you perhaps respond to the OP so I can gain a little knowledge as well?

I was watching a NZ food programme called "whats really in our food", after watching it, you'll never want to eat again, especially if you believe the BS it feeds you. The show constantly tells us that fat intake makes us fat, irregardless of the source of said fat. I'm very tempted to write in and complain that this is scare mongering at its best. I eat easily 200g of fats a day and my blood levels are fine and no signs of my arteries clogging. Unfortunately, people wont believe you if you tell them fats are good for you.

I know man, I tell my room mate that all the time. One day last week he said to me "man I'm pissed, I ate way too much fat today" I replied "I bet you didn't, what'd you have?" He said "2 eggs, a piece of sausage, some almonds, and a piece of cheese." That's what...maybe 40 grams of fat at most? He's a 225 pound dude, but he is one of the worst people I've met at believing bro science and he simply won't believe it when I tell him the bro science is exactly that, bro science.
