Polyunsatured fats are unstable and easily oxidized. Omega 6 and Omega 3 polyunsaturated fats are essential in small amounts, and dangerous in higher amounts. Most Americans are deficient in Omega 3 PUFAs and get way too much Omega 6 PUFAs. This is a result of feeding our livestock grain-based diets instead of their natural grass diets, not eating much fish, and a misguided fear of saturated fat that has led to people eating high amounts of unhealthy high-omega 6 vegetable oils.
For anyone interested, The Perfect Health Diet has quickly become my favorite book on nutrition and I highly recommend it. It's very well-researched. The book recommends .5 - 1lb of high omega 3 fish (e.g. salmon) per week to cover your omega 3 needs (I also use some ground flaxseed), and minimize omega 6. You'd practically have to eat 0 fat for an extended period of time to experience an omega 6 deficiency. The book points to monounsatured fat and saturated fat as the only sources of calories that are not toxic to the body in high amounts. Hence butter and coconut oil are about as safe as food gets. Olive oil is pretty good, too--it's mostly monounsaturated with a small amount of polyunsaturated fat, which is okay if you're minimizing other PUFA sources. I treat pretty much any other vegetable oil like poison.

Although the nutrition science discussed here is super valuable, it can be overwhelming, at least for me. Work on getting your macros in order, then start to fine tune your sources of calories and nutrients. We're changing our habits and that takes time. Look at the big stuff and then dig deeper into the minutiae. Just my 10 cents and what I'm trying to do.

If its produce...its prolly safe
If its some form of lean meat...its prolly safe
As long as your diet is based off those two staples your golden!
The work your putting in Will take care of itself! Don't get overwhelmed with anything and just keep doi what your doin! You just have a bunch if bros in iron here that wanna see you reach your goals and succeeded at being awsome! Your gonna get lots of advice that your not sure what your gonna do with it or how it applies to you..so just write it down somewhere and forget about it until your in a point in your training/where it is relevant.

That said, I would have appreciated knowing earlier on that steak, whole eggs, potatoes, and white rice are great, healthy dietary staples.

Just be responsible with it. Remember your still a big boy and your body and joints are throwing around And handling alot of weight that its not used to doing. Its gonna wanna fight back sometime lol. It happens to everybody I've ever trained or worked with that's in your shoes.
Just take a few days off...maybe get a tens unit if you can find one and keep a hot pack on it. You'll loosen back up and yoill jump back into feline like a million bucks after a couple days off

Lather that sucker up with ice-hot bro! First thing i always do when I strain any muscle is throw some icy hot on it and massage it constantly, I had a knot in my back about the size of a lemon 4 month ago that took my wife a month to get rid of and I was pissed the whole time cause I could barely train. Try and get out and do some light stuff like walking also you can do some carb fasting right now since you won't be so active.
Oh and I'm Subin this ***** to I've gone through two major weight loss periods in my life so I know what your gonna go through. Just stay positive and that weight will be falling off of you in no time.
