If I remember correctly from Cordain's work, the ratio is about 45/45/10 of sat/mono/poly found in wild game. So, if contemporary HG's eat up to 58% of calories from fat, that means approximately 26% of total calories can come from saturated fat - far more than the <10% recommended by the geniuses in the AHA, ADA, ect.

Furthermore, I think it's safe to say that our ancestors would of eaten even more fat since the contemporary HG's don't have as plentiful hunting.
