Hi, I'm new to site and have been paleo since dec. 2013. Tried it because my daughter was told its good for her MS. So far I have lost 15 lbs. but feel I'm using too many fats. Any suggestions on fat useage?

Girrrllll (I'm assuming you're female based on your fat aversion as men tend to have less issues with consuming fats), it takes a lot of mental work to get over the whole fat phobia, but once you do and you embrace them into your lifestyle and diet (while eliminating refined sugar and carbs) you will be rewarded. Everything from increased satiety and energy to decreased health issues and body fat. Keep it up!

Thanks for the suggestions and support regarding fats in a healthy diet.

I will continue to educate myself on Paleo healthy choices. After a lifetime of avoiding fats I find myself feeling guilty eating ribs, avocado or olive oil. It's new and still feels naughty.

I have no negative results and I'm enjoying a new surge of energy and elevated joy because of my Paleo plan. I thank you for the support.

Post more details about your stituation; diet, exercise, ht, wt, age, etc

You'll get more detailed & custom responses.

Good fats are good for you....low fat eating is a mistake. You've been losing fat right? Your results so far must be providing some really nice positive feedback. Keep doing what you've been doing. Make sure you're getting enough protein too.

I think the real question is: Why do you feel like you're using too many fats? Are you having any negative side effects? Or are you just worried about the 'alternative'ness of the philosophy?

The latter can easily be remedied by reading literature on the subject, assuming you're willing to invest the time. The first would require a more specific question.

Note: You shoudn't put your whole post in the title. ;)

Keep using them. If you want to "feel good" or "less guilty", just stick to olive oil, hazelnut oil, macadamia oil, avocado oil, or almond oil since they're mainly monounsaturated. However, you shouldn't feel bad, fats (saturated and monounsaturated) are perfectly healthy for you so don't be afraid of some butter or some fatty pork ribs or ribeye steaks or chicken wings, they're all perfectly fine and you'll continue to do great and notice positive changes in your health. Best of luck and enjoy :)
