Posted on a car forum that I am a member of. Thought I'd ask you nutrition experts of the validity of this.

"I have this magazine in front of me and it says that if you eat a steak, you should wash it down with a glass of skim milk. According to their research, calcium may reduce the amount of saturated fat your body absorbs. Like fiber, calcium binds with fat molecules and help flush them out of the intestines.

It sounds reasonable to me. Has anyone else heard of this or can give more information on this?"

Never heard of this. Wouldn't it be more effective just to take a calcium supp at steak-time?

Is saturated fat really much of an issue?

I'm assuming the answer is no, based on you asking the question. :happy: Can you please explain why? I've always understood that saturated fats are bad for LDL cholesterol levels, while poly and monos were good. Is that incorrect?

I know that cholesterol isn't an issue (after having it explained to me on here).

Robb's exactly right. Check out Dr. Ravnskov's materials and then we'll have some great specifics to talk about.

My answer would be of all the things that you could fear saturated fats should be on a list so long that you've long been staying indoors and wearing a helmet.
