    I found an interesting guy when looking up canola oil. He claims that the rise in allergies and asthma is directly correlated with vegetable oil consumption. He mentions that the body stores PUFA like a mad man because it used to be a rare encounter in human diet. He also mentions how PUFA are inflammatory and that a small quantity can be helpful, but too much will create problems. Interesting article overall.

    That article really resonated with me and I am now convinced that vegetable oils (apart from coconut and olive oil) should be completely avoided. I was still getting some from time to time from some processed foods, but I will be eliminating most of those too.

    Yeah PUFA are really just no good, imo even from "natural" sources. The natural sources wouldn't be so bad necessarily if not for the fact that most of us already have way too many PUFA stored internally. Every time I have recently experimented with bringing small amounts of natural pufas back in my diet it hasn't ended well for me. So I'm done with all PUFA.

    I was on the fence with the whole high oleic and whatnot. I think olive oil is ok due to its unprocessed nature that leaves vitamin E and polyphenols intact and actually help counteract PUFAs.

    When looking up the chart about increased consumption of PUFA in the general population, it was stated that it was about 10g a day in the beginning of the 21st century. I think I will set that as my new target, I think it's realistic and easily achievable when avoiding processed foods.

    Even a high fat breakfast I ate yesterday, consisting of 100g of cheese, 100g of pork sausages and 3 tablespoons of heavy cream with berries still only contained 8 grams of PUFA for nearly 80 grams of fat.

    My motivation also comes from this quote since I'm pregnant and my first kid is dealing with eczema and an egg allergy:
