View Full Version : saturated fat amount

I have seen several guidelines, and I just wanted to know the general concensus on saturated fats. How much saturated fats do you all feel is acceptable in a bulk? I have never come across a definitive answer obviously, but I would like to hear some input.

The USDA and Berardi both suggest consuming about a third of your fats from saturates. I summarized fat consumption at the end of this article:


On a bulk? Well, saturated fat can interfere with insulin sensitivity, so you'd probably want to increase monounsaturated if you were bulking on higher fats.

thanx, for the info Built. Interesting comment about insulin sensitivity. Thanx for the tip my dear. I really don't bulk anymore, just body recomp mainly.
