    Do all your fats come from EFA's?

    im on a cutting diet an i thought i read somewhere someone saying mayonaise was good.. i was actually surprised.. should i really have some bad fats too?

    mayo is fine. its just oil and egg.

    I wouldnt use it every meal, but its ok to use once a day.

    I see no problem with it at all..... as long as you are getting your EFAs in atleast a couple other meals there is nothing wrong with using other sources of fat. And mayo isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be IMO

    Getting all your fat from EFAs is a bad idea, having too much in your diet is just as bad as having too little.

    I am glad someone else says the same thing. I know there are some on this board that go all EFA's which I think it ridiculous. Keep in mind saturated fat is part of a number of hormonal functions with one of them being testosterone regulation/production.

    I use a variety of fats never the same each day. Beef, Eggs, Bacon, Cheese, Ranch, Butter, Mayo, anything not containing Trans Fats. Now dont make these the staple of your diet, be sure to include plenty of EFA's, but dont shy away from them in moderation because of their role in a number of metabolic processes.

    I would not go with Ranch dressing, so much sugar in that crap it is ridiculous. 1 tbsp of Mayo in your tuna w/ an EFA is sufficient.

    I have 2 tbsp of Mayo a day (2 meals that contain tuna) and i also of course have my EFA's.

    Your body does require some sat fats, not all efa's

    My first pro/fat meal is often eye of round steak with brocc...
    its very lean, 190grams on the foreman grill comes out to 55 protein and 9 fat.

    My other 2 pro fat meals are typically chicken with some olive oil in a salad, and my shake before bed (either casein or whey with natty pb or flax oil)

    I guess i have looked at the wrong brand possicbly? I do not have much need for it in my dietary approach. Although I will sprinkle a little on a chicken salad when i have one.
