Do you eat the fat?

(What The Fast?!) #41

What if you cut it in small pieces, fried it up til crispy and threw it in a salad as croutons?

Whoa, I think I just created a recipe.

Yes. This.

I have a SNP (Single-nucleotide polymorphism) in one of my genes that does tend to play a role in my obesity, cholesterol markers, and may drive what types of fats and amounts that I eat to keep my best health.

Just because I have this gene rearrangement doesn’t mean it will play out, although, I do think it has, so I do keto, but just modify a bit with saturated fat, ratios, and such. rs5082 is a SNP in the apolipoprotein APOA2 gene, and may influence obesity and heart disease risk. So, self experiment.

There is much to be learned, still. I’m open to looking at my biomarkers, my weight, my body comp and learning.

I just can’t! I like fatty foods, and am crazy about butter and bacon grease, but just can’t eat the fat attached to meat. It makes me gag.

I eat the fat on meat occasionally if a small amount is attached to the piece I have cut. Like others, the feel of it in the mouth is not pleasant if I take in a bit sized chunk.

just curious…do you usually not season your steak or is it just with this technique you don’t?

We’re not really judging. Some of us are just laughing at ourselves as we used to be. And some of us just like any pretense to make jokes. Please don’t feel judged. If we’re judging anything, it’s the fat-phobic culture that surrounds us.

YESYESYESYES! Bacon salad with fat croutons for the win!


Oh yes. I eat the fat. The more the better. Ribeye, yes. Prime rib, yes yes. Even the Pope’s Nose on the tail end of a roast chicken, yes. My answer is yes.

Have never heard that expression before!:yum:

That’s how I do it. Haven’t used my grill in a while!

(Heather) #54

I do that with chicken skin…but most of the time I just eat it plain because it’s sooooo good, it never makes it onto the salad!!

Love it!!!

You don’t season it before cooking?
I season every meat 2 days in advance. Let the salt work it’s way into the meat.
When cooking steak indoors, I cook sous vide (favorite) or I cook it at 200 degrees Fahrenheit in the oven until it gets 10 degrees shy of serving temp. Then I finish in a hot cast iron skillet.

I love that chicken ass!! Especially when coming off a grill.
Nothing like a smokey chicken fat ass.

(Ketopia Court Jester) #59

Holy crap, I laughed. Reminded me of this…

(Ernest) #60

HAHA! I got carried away


Same here, prefer 3 days for thick cuts

Ain’t no such thing as too much fat on the plate of a ketoer. Carry on.
