I'm eating at about maintanence right now I "think" and my activity level is extremely high. My goal is to cut, but slowly. I don't want to lower my calories, at least not yet I like the energy I'm getting eating this amount, it's very comfortable and it lets me lift very hard. I'm gonna wait like 2 more weeks to see what happens to my BF and weight. If my weight goes up, it has to be muscle, because there is no way I can gain fat eating the 2600ish calories I eat every day with the workouts I do.

Anyways is it bad if lots of my calories come from saturated fat? If I'm burning more calories than I consume, would that saturated fat I consume get burned also? Like would say 20-40grams a day be bad?

i may be wrong, but i think one should be more concerned with trans fat?

I agree, trans fats should be kept to a minimum, where as some saturated fat is good, but too much is bad.:D

There has been a positive correlation between saturated fat and testosterone levels.

but if you were at all concerned about cholesterol, sat fat has a large amount of LDL's.

True, but that doesn't mean that it is the cholestrol that clogs your arteries. You body actually needs some chol. it when injest alot of suger that it becomes an issue.

Now explain to the rest of the class what a lipoprotien is, and how, supposedly you digest it?
