Hi everyone, ive been informing myself about the paleo diet and ive hit a wall with the fats. Reading a lot ive become convinced that we need all kind of fats in our diets, also we need to balance w3 and w6, on the other hand acording to a paper on evolutionary diet i read w9 was central in our ancestors diet, finally its reasonable to think that our ancestors ate some saturated fat as animals save fat in this form (although the paper mentioned before argued that fats from animals where really difrent back then). Now with all this in mind my question would be, how much of each fat do i optamally need? Of course we all love saturated fats and the human body is really adaptable so i dont believe that straying a little bit from optimal will do any harm but still it would be great to know the proper balance of fats our ancestors eat in order to come as close as i can. If anyone has evidence on this regard it would be really helpfull.
