Most people associate fat in meat with saturated fat, which can be bad in excess if one does not balance things out and does not exercise consistently.

The reality is that many foods containing saturated fatty acids are not necessarily dominantly comprised of such.


I tired to fit anaother "y" in that last sentence but I couldn't.

well of course, i know what sat fat is. my question is that:
TOTAL fat 16g
16-3.5= 12.5g fat that i have no clue what the heck it is.

Yeah, uh, I never said you didn't know what sat fat is.

You indicated that you have always heard the fat in meat is bad and that you were confused.

Well, I shed some light on your confusion.

Take out saturated fat and you are left monounsturated, polyunsaturated, and trans.




EDIT: you're 15, nevermind.

The rest is mono unsaturated and polyunsaturated at some amount. And fat from meat isnt bad... not at all.

If there was trans they would tell you. But your eating animal meat so there is no trans (but there is a bit in all milk).

Yeah, but it's CLA, a healthy trans.
