Eating coconut oil Netherlands?

    Hi all,

    I learned from Jack here and through his book, that food that is out of season and food that doesn't originally grow in my country, The Netherlands, are a mismatch to 1. my cirdadian rhythm as 2. not in line with the Epi Paleo Diet.

    Am I correct?

    So no coconut oil but grass fed butter, lard and ghee for the Dutch?

    This doesn't directly answer your question, but one of the things he mentions is no saturated fat if you're eating unsaturated DHA foods like salmon because the DHA isn't as well absorbed.

    I thought that Jack's book says that you sould eat seafood with duck fat/butter? Or did I not understand it right?

    I don't have the book and I believe that was some time ago and he may not feel exactly as he did then.

    Coconut oil is almost entirely saturated fat. Pastured butter and animal fat has much less saturated fat than their factory farming component. I believe pastured lard is mostly unsaturated. I don't know how unsaturated you should go when eating DHA. I use either olive oil or duck fat when cooking salmon.

    These are separate issues than what fats are appropriate at what times of the year.
