Eating lots of Grass-Fed Beef Suet

Commented on May 31, 2011
Created May 30, 2011 at 2:37 AM

when I first went high fat I was eating tons of grass fed beef suet and remember being soooo excited about how much better it was making me feel. I have definitly lessened the amount because it's such an extremely fatty thing, and looks gross to others, and figured as long as I get a little at every meal I'll be fine. However, I'm trying to eat very large amounts of it again like before, because I haven't felt as good as before when I first started. I'll report back, but has anyone done this?

Are you eating just the suet, or rendering it down to tallow? Do you have a preferred source and or process? Links? Some while ago I made a bunch of bacon for the family - then later ate *all* the hardened grease in one sitting (I had intended to take just a nibble but it was SO good I just inhaled the lot!). I've been mainly eating VCO for the saturated fat but would like to expand my options there...

Suet is fat from around the organs of the animal...it's more saturated than fat from other parts of the animal and is more prized for making pie crusts if you're into that sort of thing.

Fat from cows. Beef suet can be rendered into beef tallow.

people should go out and make enough cooked suet that it's the same size as 5 pieces of bacon, eat it, repeat for another day, and if you don't notice anything by then, then you don't have to go any further. With suet, I notice that health problems seem to get better immediately. There's no waiting for it to work.

I feel better on a higher fat diet as well.

Thanks. Yeah i've been a little dissappointed with my high fat diet, but have been realizing that I have decreased the amount because I though maybe its bad to have too much. But I think a lot of beef suet may be why initially the high fat diet was better than it is now. I've tried playing with carbs/protein/fat ratios to fix the problem, but it hasn't been resolved. I just had the most excitement that I can remember in a while when I intitially did high fat which was a lot of grass fed suet.

I'm just about to render out 4.89 pound of it, to include in pretty much all my cooking.

I'd think that the main reason it makes you feel good is the high fat component of your diet. I'm eating a pretty high fat diet now, and I feel better now than when I was eating more carbs from sweet potatoes, etc.

Also, ever though of giving the suet a light fry, like sautéeing it, and then lightly salting it? I hear it's good. I'll be trying that with some of the suet I got.
