Heart in Hand

For optimum health and weight maintenance, the ideal caloric ratios for the three macronutrients are carbohydrates, 10—15 percent; protein, 15—25 percent; and fat, 60—70 percent of calories. Among the different kinds of fats, saturated fats and monounsaturated fats (olive oil) are good; polyunsaturated fats, except for omega-3 and (a small amount of) omega-6 essential fatty acids, are bad, especially industrially processed vegetable oils; and trans fats are terrible. Saturated animal fat is best obtained from grass-fed beef and pastured chickens, along with nitrate-free, additive-free bacon and sausage; and seafood from wild (not farm-raised) fish.

The idea that nitrate is somehow bad has never panned out. Now that more is known about how nitrates and nitrites are metabolized, it's looking like they might actually be beneficial.

Bacon is health food!

The Red-Meat Miracle, and Other Tales From the Butcher Case - New York Times

Food sources of nitrates and nitrites: the physiol... [Am J Clin Nutr. 2009] - PubMed result


Junkfood Science: Does banning hotdogs and bacon make sense?

"In 1981, the National Academy of Sciences reviewed the scientific literature and found no link between nitrates or nitrites and human cancers, or evidence to even suggest that they’re carcinogenic. Since then, more than 50 studies and multiple international scientific bodies have investigated a possible link between nitrates and cancers and mortality in humans and found no association.

What may be more surprising to learn is that scientific evidence has been building for years that nitrates are actually good for us, that nitrite is produced by our own body in greater amounts than is eaten in food, and that it has a number of essential biological functions, including in healthy immune and cardiovascular systems. Nitrite is appearing so beneficial, it’s even being studied as potential treatments for health problems such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, sickle cell disease and circulatory problems."

81 g fat
21 g monounsat fat
3 g poly unsat fat
