What do you guys do with fat on meats when leaning out?
When leaning out do you guys trim the fat off the meat or do you eat it? I don't really get much fats from other sources other than occasionally olive oil right now so I thought leaving some of the sat fat on the meat wouldn't be that bad when leaning out and it's just to delicious to ignore.

BTW, since adding this new weight I can pack down more than 16oz of steak daily. love it.

I'd trim the visible fat. If you're eating red meat you'll likely have few issues getting fat in the diet.

If you're hitting your EFAs you don't exactly need fat anyway.

Alright i'll do that, thanks.

i found getting enough protein in (200g) while on a limited calorie diet really hard when i was eating alot of red meat as my main source of protein.

i found a switch to eating more kangaroo (or venison) made a huge difference.

mind you i was using fitday which didnt differentiate between cuts or grass/grain fed.

id definitely trim off visible fat. add it back in when you are maintaining. :)
