Saturated fat should not be demonized, especially on a ketogenic diet. However, we have found that our bodies adapt best when saturated fat represents about 50 percent of our total fat intake and the rest comes from monounsaturated fats like oils and avocados. This could, in part, explain why so many studies have different findings in regards to cholesterol and triglyceride levels following a ketogenic diet . If you are concerned about these factors, ensuring that you consume a balance of saturated and monounsaturated fats may be a good approach for you.
