Don’t forget tallow and bacon grease!

The only PUFA’s we need are ω-3’s and ω-6’s, and we don’t need that much. A third of the fat as PUFA is too much. Also, I notice that the particpants were eating around 95 grams of carbohydrate, so unless they were guaranteed to be insulin-sensitive, I don’t think the results have all that much to do with those of us trying to eat a well-formulated ketogenic diet.
