JadedRaven Posted August 3, 2016 Share Posted August 3, 2016 Hi, Should I be eating servings of fats in addition to the fat used for cooking? I know the serving size rules, 1-2 thumbs, 1/2-1 avocado, etc. For context/background: I'm on my second round of Whole30. Last time I realized around half way or so that I wasn't following the "principles" of the program when it came to snacks and fruits, it was just an error on my part (there is a lot to think about). While all the foods I ate were compliant, I realized at some point that I was likely eating too much fruit, using it as a mid-afternoon snack or dessert. This time around I want to minimize that. I now realize that it was likely because I wasn't having enough fat at mealtime to keep me fueled for 4-5 hours. The stretch between lunch and dinner seemed like an eternity. My question is: should I be having this much fat in addition to the cooking fat I use for making either meat and/or veggies? Or does cooking my meat in a "thumb" of butter satisfy the amount I should be having to stay full? Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
