Would paleo work using lean meats and getting sat. fat from other sources such as coconut oil etc.?

Sort of like this guy:

I'll pass on it actually. Much prefer olive oil. Prefer my fat mostly MUFAs.

A lousy substitute ... but a delicious oil. ;-)

Coconut oil is a lousy substitute for animal fats. Just stick to animal fats.

I just noticed that my website was getting hits from this thread and as the author of the page referenced above, I thought I should comment.

To clarify, I am not suggesting coconut oil as a substitute for animal fat. I mention it as a good oil to cook with and as a substitution for bad oils (like canola) and for butter/margarine in baking.

What I meant by the statement that I try to avoid high fat meats, I was referring to the type found commonly in the supermarket which has been purposely raised in a manner to generate large amounts of fat in the meat, which butchers commonly refer to as marbling. I'm not suggesting avoiding the fat found in fish (like salmon) or grass fed beef. I should probably edit the page to ensure that is clear. My apologies.

It should also be kept in mind that my site is specifically for those with multiple sclerosis and the 'paleo like' diet I describe is based on the work of others like Dr. Terry Wahls and Ashton Embry.

Of course! I add a lot of organic butter and coconut oil to up my fat content when cooking.

From what I can gather, grass fed meat and fat is the most nutritious - as a lot of the good/bad stuff gets stored in the fat itself. I try to stay clear of most poorly fed animal fat when I can, and add my own, but if I can't itss not a biggy!

I'm in work so have no references for this, but the book Primal Body Primal Mind goes into this a little to get the best fats with your meal :)
