    Saturated Fat - How Much

    Is any saturated fat acceptable or should it be avoided at all costs. I have a 4000 calorie a day diet. Everytime I see saturated fat and im like **** I cant eat that even if its very low in it.

    I too was that way once. However I read reknowned expert Dr Beradi who preaches 1/3 of your fat should come from saturated fat. Saturated fat has great effects on testerone level.

    Saturated fat can easily get out of hand, so do keep an eye on it still. I get my saturated fat from dairy only and the small amounts in my other "good" fat sources such as avocados and peanut butter.

    As Mr. D says saturated fats are good for you, particularly for hormone production.

    It's trans fats you want to avoid completely.
