Anything you can't make yourself with very simple machinery. So good = Olive oil, nut oils, avocado oil, coconut oil, and I know I'm missing some.

You can't be certain either way, and regardless of whether or not it's hydrogenated, CAFO pork fat is extremely high in n-6 (and low in n-3). Add that to corn oil, which is mostly n-6, and you have a recipe for disaster. The diet of those rats is a far cry from a healthy high fat diet.

I don't see why this study would be an exception

Well if they were fed hydrogenated lard it would have said so, just like when thy use hydrogenated coconut oil it always says so.

You believe that those rats were fed unhydrogenated lard from healthy pigs?

Tyer, I thought lard was good for you? It's a "healthy traditional fat"

"approximately 72% fat (corn oil and lard)" 'nuff said.

My guess: avoid vegetables oils like soybean oil, sunflower oil, corn oil, grapeseed oil, and sesame oil. You may also want to moderate consumption of nuts and seeds.

I take 2 tablespoons full of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon full of cod liver oil in the morning. Otherwise, if you stick with paleo, fat quality will probably not be a problem. I use celery stalks dipped in melted butter as a desert.

Can you please make this into a specific question? Right now it's incomprehensible.

Well, I'd be curious to see this article, but I will say that when it comes to high fat diets, the type of fat matters.

Here's a blog post by Jamie Scott (AKA that paleo guy) discussing an interesting study. It evaluated the effect of different dietary fats in rats. Jamie focusses on the effect the different fats had on intestinal tight junctions:

"As intestinal integrity is controlled by multiple tight junction proteins, the authors evaluated the expression of these tight junction integrity markers. There was significant down-regulation of tight junction proteins in response to a linoleic acid-rich diet alone, compared to the diet rich in MCT and beef tallow"

So what does that mean? It may suggest that high fat diets can cause leaky gut when the fat is largely linoleic acid, but not when the fat is saturated or a mix of saturated and monounsaturated.

Rat studies are probably not the best evidence, but from what I've seen so far I don't think a high (mono and sat) fat diet is going to cause leaky gut.

I have been cured from leaky gut syndrome that I did not even know that I had since doing paleo for about 2 months. Before paleo, curry (my favorite food) and other hot foods would make me irritable and suffer insomnia and make me difficult to live with. On the recent Father's Day, I had two meals with 3 bowls of curry. Then, of course, there was lots of curry left over, so I had 12 more bowls over the next 2 days. I had no problems whatsoever. That was amazing.

Yes, bacteria in your gut will change with a high fat diet. I recommend homemade kefir. It will reducing your overall house expenses and is very easy, easier than homemade yogurt.
