I like fat. I have a very fast metabolism, and eating lots of fat makes my life easier because I can only fit so much food in my stomach. Also, fat just tastes damn good.
I usually get between 200 and 250 grams of fat daily. I try to get it from a good mix of sources, including meat, dairy, nuts, fish oil, olive oil, and coconut oil when I can find the virgin kind. I probably get around 80 grams of saturated fat (at least) daily. I also eat very few carbohydrates; mostly because my body just does not crave them. I personally feel like a high fat intake is healthy and keeps my insulin sensitivy very high. However, I was curious if anyone had any actual data relevant to someone who eats healthy and trains hard about any potential effects, negative or otherwise, of a high fat intake.
I let myself get very paranoid when uneducated people babble about the "dangers" of dietary fat. I have no reason to believe that the way I'm eating is unhealthy, but I'm sure bullshit organizations such as the USDA would tell me that I'm at "severe risk of disease and sickness" because of my "unhealthy dietary habits." I guess the problem is that I have no evidence supporting my ideas either. I see things like Christian Thibedeau suggesting that EVERYONE should get 90g of dietary fat daily. Thsee things cause me to wonder whether that's a bad recommendation due to the fact that physiological processes vary by person and thus the optimal fat intake also varies, or I'm just simply wrong. I'd be the first to admit that I know MUCH less than CT, so things like that get me tripped up.
