I don't want to offend anyone but I think this is unhealthy and gross. The kind of fat I am talking about is the fat on a piece of steak or chop, usually 1 to 2 cm thick of pure fat. My Husband does this and I can't always stop him, if he has a steak at a restaurant he will eat the whole thing and then say there wasn't any. At home I always try to chop it off first, but if he gets to the meat first then he eats it fat and all. He's promised not to, but he still does it. Any suggestions

Recommendations for dieting: Do not eat meat more than once a day. Fish and poultry are recommended instead of red or processed meats. Avoid frying food because food absorbs the fats from cooking oils and this increases dietary fat intake. Bake or broil food instead. If you do fry, use polyunsaturated oils, such as corn oil. Include adequate fiber in your diet. Fiber is found in green leafy vegetables, fruit, beans, bran flakes, nuts, root vegetables, and whole grain foods. Fiber often makes you feel full without having to eat excess calories. Do not eat more than 4 eggs per week. Although they are a good source of protein and low in saturated fat, eggs are very high in cholesterol, and should be eaten in moderation for that reason. Choose fresh fruit for desserts rather than cookies, cake, or pudding. Cut down on salt, whether it be table salt, or flavor intensifiers that contain salt such as monosodium glutamate (MSG). Too much of anything has its drawbacks, whether it be calories, or a particular type of food. A well-balanced diet with creativity and variety are best suited to your needs.

actually the animal fat on the meat is really healthy, it has alot of good things your body needs. However i trim a bunch off of the meat so that we dont over do it. The unhealthy fat comes in with oils and crud. If he likes to eat it i woundent stress unless a doctor has said he needs to cut back on his fat intake. Just dont think of it lol.
